UK: Guess Who...

The Guardian

article printed in its entirety

Her again: Palin's cold war ideology

Guess who?:

"He needs to remember that, uh, what happened back then with the communist U.S.S.R. and their victory in that race to space," the Fox News contributor said Wednesday night, reacting to Obama's reference to Sputnik in his State of the Union speech. [X] called the Sputnik name drop one of the "W.T.F." moments in the speech, a play of the President's call for "winning the future."

"Yeah, they won but they also incurred so much debt at the time that it resulted in the inevitable collapse of the Soviet Union," [X] said.

Well, actually, it could be a lot of people. But yes, go with your first instinct. She whose name anagrams out to Sharia Plan, according to this anagram generator, which actually is pretty apposite if you think about it, because if she really believes that man walked with dinosaur, which she in fact basically said she does believe, then she might have some kind of strange religious plan for us if she's ever living on Pennsylvania Avenue.

For those of you who are interested, I haven't linked to this in a couple of years, but it's the Taylor Trail, in (where else?) Texas, that provides the "evidence" that humans walked with the dinosaurs. You know, it was in the newspapers. All of them.

Anyway, what happened to the idea that Randy Scheunemann was teaching her history lessons these days? The idea that the collapse of the Soviet Union happened because of the space...well, there I go, actually taking something she says seriously. Forgive me.

I really do wish that some US outlet...USA Today, let's say, would announce one day: from this day forward, we're covering Palin in the entertainment section, not the news section, because that's all she is, because she is not intelligent enough to be taken seriously as any other sort of person.
