Did Sarah Palin really say that?

“What I think she could add to that even is to explain what the real witchcraft and voodoo politics and economics is, and that’s what’s going on in D.C. And that’s why she’s determined to get to D.C., to write some laws and get some truth in Washington D.C. so that our economy can get roaring back to life.”—On what was missing from Christine O’Donnell’s “I’m You” campaign ad, to Fox News’ Sean Hannity, Sept. 6, 2010.
See the complete list here.
Don’t let the title fool you.
Only 28% of U.S. adults admit to being tea-baggers. 26% oppose. 38% neither support nor oppose. 8% don’t give a f***.
49% of tea-baggers identify themselves as GOP compared to…..
…… a whopping 28% of all U.S. adults who are willing to admit that they are Republicans.
72% of all U.S. adults are either Independent (40%) or Dems (32%).
Here’s a shocker….
70% of tea-baggers say they are Conservative but only 40% of U.S. adults say so. 59% of U.S. adults are either Moderate (38%) or Liberal (21%).
And look, another huge surprise….
19% of tea-baggers earn less than $30K a year
…… 55% make more than $50K
62% of Republicans and 63% of Conservatives have a favorable opinion of tea-baggers, but……
More National Adults overall(40% v 37%), Independents (41% v 37%), and Moderates (51% v 24%) have an UNFAVORABLE opinion compared to a favorable one.
Wake up you Republicans and Conservatives before you disappear completely into the cultural oblivion and societal garbage heap which is most certainly the final destination of Queen Tea Bag and her moronic movement.
As if the last scintilla of any real news journalism credibility hadn’t already been sacrificed in honor of Beckwits everywhere, they’ve finally gone and pulled the trigger on someone who is undoubtedly the dumbest person ever to get into national politics; someone even dumber than W. It’ll sadly and probably be good for ratings, though. Got to give them that. They know how to feed crap to and make billions from people who seem all too willing to eat it up without question and with a giant spoon.
Hiring Palin to somehow be a respectable and reputable commentator on something she knows nothing about? Are they kidding? Oh wait, she was governor, but that didn’t seem to suit her, either. But then, there is all of that hard work she puts into reading books, magazines and newspapers in order to keep up with what’s happening in the world, you betcha’.
IMHO, the only people Fox News should still have any credibility with are the couple in the Twinkies/HoHos wedding cake photo that circulated in email a few years back. I honestly can’t see how any other segment of the population doesn’t see through their charade.
So, good f****** luck with that. We all might as well subscribe to the The Globe for additional in-depth and investigative news, shut down all the other news companies, and stop all funding of public news organizations. Fox has Sarah and that’s all we need to know.
