Palin says Schmidt full of BS

Can the country stomach much more of Sarah Palin? Tonight on USA's blog:

Sarah Palin made her debut as a Fox News contributor memorable tonight, telling veteran Fox host Bill O'Reilly that new attacks on her 2008 vice presidential bid are "a bunch of B.S."

Palin applied the epithet to criticisms by former John McCain campaign aides in a new book and a recent 60 Minutes interview; among other things, they said the former Alaska governor didn't know why North and South Korea are separate nations.

"Yes, that surprised me," Palin said. "I hadn't seen the 60 Minutes thing. I had been warned, you know, don't watch. It's a bunch of B.S. from [Steve] Schmidt and from some of those."

As for the Korea claim, she said: "That is a lie."

Her personal reference is to former McCain strategist Steve Schmidt, who told 60 Minutes on Sunday that Palin had a habit of saying things "that were provably, demonstrably untrue."

You can read and see the video here.

On other topics, Palin told O'Reilly she does not think Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid is racist, but neither was former Republican leader Trent Lott and he was forced to step down because of racially charged remarks.

She also said both President Obama and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi are out of touch with most Americans, and she is not surprised that Obama's approval ratings are dropping.

"It was just a matter of time before more of that reflection of the people's uncomfortableness that they feel towards this administration is manifesting in these poll numbers," Palin said.

Until it comes out that she had an affair with John McCain, I'm not writing about her again for a long, long time.


  1. I missed Palins first night?? DAMN!!! Something is wrong with my email connection and the motherfuckin verizon!! I've been trying to connect for 45 minutes and I'm giving up and I'll open your email tomorrow! Maybe the earthquake in Haiti has blown verizons circuits? I don't know what I'm talking about, good night!

  2. Sarah Palin is the Paris Hilton of right wing politics, and like Ms Hilton, she is thriving in the spotlight. The former Miss "wherever" has won the lottery, she has gotten herself a seven figure salary (nothing wrong with that)and she has probably achieved all she is going to.

    The link I promised HERE

    I will look for videos too.

  3. As long as everyone continues to watch, read, and write about her, she will remain in the news. Holte is correct. She is the Paris Hilton of the right. All fluff and no substance.

  4. Thanks Holte, I'm working on two huge unrelated progects, one about this. Have a lot of material to read and organize but I really appreiciate the video. Might be good to launch another project at the same time.

    Move your money sounds like a winner and there's a couple close to home. Small towns can be a good way to go as well.

    I'm going to tell you something that will convince you and TC I have two heads. But we could use some levity these days. I actually like Paris Hilton. She's just as you say she is but, she's rich as a skunk, she has no aspirations to be VP or Pres, and she seems content just being who/what she is.

    I happen to think she's classy as hell and quite beautiful- that walk and those stunning shoulders. I also think she's actually kind of shy. But I've seen her on Ellen where she's been an absolute scream. Brains? Who cares?

    Madonna turned out to be a marketing genious. Betty Hutton and Marilyn Monroe were actually sharp. Anyway, you get the idea.

    JC: "As long as everyone continues to watch, read, and write about her, she will remain in the news." That's I said it will be a long time before I write about her again - until she has an affair with John McCain, or better yet a 3-some with B & L.

    I'm having one of my many sleepless nights and I get a little slap-happy sometimes.


  5. Lullaby, and goodnight, Sue. Sleep tight. See ya tomorrow.

  6. sorry about the MF comment you can delete it if you want. Seems this eatrhquake may have something to do with Verizon problems, or maybe lines were all atwitter over Palins big unveiling last night!

  7. That's okay. That kind of problem can drive a nun to say all kinds of things.

  8. "Thanks Holte, I'm working on two huge unrelated progects, (sic) one about this."

    What that convoluted statement means: I'm working on 2 projects unrelated to "each other."
    But one is related to the above. Does that help?

    If Paris runs for office, all bets are off.
