Mean Katie Couric and crybaby Sarah Palin

By Brent Budowsky - 08/05/10 11:14 AM ET


Regarding this latest pittypatter about what Katie Couric allegedly said off camera about Palin and Co., here's my advice to Sarah Palin and her fans in the right-wing media. Give it a rest, get a life, move on.

In the famous interview, remember how Palin could not remember what newspapers she read in the morning. Remember how she claimed as foreign policy experience that she could see Russia when she looked over the water. And so forth. Give me a break.

Sarah Palin is a real tough cookie when she takes cheap shots at Democrats, but she sure is a wimp and a whiner when she deals with the media.

It has not been revealed yet whether Palin had answers written on her hand during the Couric interview, or has it? This juvenilia from someone who pretends she is ready to be president is hilarious.

Palin is not seen as so unqualified to be president, by such a majority of voters, because of the evil liberal media or the evil Katie Couric. She is seen as unqualified because she says things that are crazy, says things that are wrong, and says things that are nasty.

Instead of making cheap-shot attacks against opponents, and then playing the victimized crybaby when she could not remember what newspapers she reads in the morning, or what notes she writes on her hand, my advice to Sarah Palin is this:

Palin could learn a lot about how grown-ups play Major League Baseball by emulating Secretary of State Hillary Rodman Clinton and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Compared to them, Palin is the Little League.

The Chairman of the Board of Supervisors of Fairfax County has executive government experience. Is she qualified in your mind to be President based purely upon that credential?

If we go purely upon those criteria, neither Eisenhower nor Grant should have been elected. Neither should Lincoln. Nor Kennedy.

And yes, I would argue that all those men were far more intelligent than Palin is.

More like we get tired of repeating ourselves, just like we're equally tired of the birthers' assertions.

"Hi, what are Obama's qualifications to be President?"

"Why...um...er..."chirp"..."chirp"..."chirp"

Yes, I can see how that could get tiring. ; )

>>> There are lots dishonest ideologues who have thrown their name into the political arena.

I know...and when two were mentioned...Jackson and Obama...we were appropriately reviled.

>>> Interesting that Jesse Jackson's name was pulled out of the air to be compared to President Obama. hmmm. Gee, wonder why. Jackson wasn't run for anything in quite some time (something like 20 years). That's really reaching.

Maybe they both share a socialist agenda? Or maybe it's because they're equally qualified to be President? LOL!

>>> More importantly, neither Jackson nor President Obama have anything whatsoever to do with Sarah Palin being a crybaby. Some of you people really need to make an effort to stick to the topic.

Actually, it's the assertion that Palin is a crybaby that just reaks of liberal hypocrisy...and mentioning Obama just serves to highlight that. Not surprising that those on the far left hate having the intellectual infant thrown back in their faces every time they try to attack Palin. ; ) It's too easy, I know...but oh, so satisfying.

Really? It seemed to matter to you quite a bit just a few short posts ago...

"Interesting that Jesse Jackson's name was pulled out of the air to be compared to President Obama. hmmm. Gee, wonder why. Jackson wasn't run for anything in quite some time (something like 20 years). That's really reaching."

...I guess it isn't as fun to play the race card when it's used to trump one of your own. LOL!

>>> The point is that he has nothing to do with the topic OR President Obama.

Then you should take that up with the person who brought Jesse Jackson into the discussion.

>>> If you or anyone else is determined to discuss Jesse Jackson, start a thread.

No, problem. I'm quite happy to discuss Obama's whiny thin skin or his complete lack of experience or the terrible job he's done running the country...pick a topic. ; )

*sigh* Fine. I'll play your silly game.

Obama graduated from a top college and law school. He was a community activist, civil rights attorney, and taught constitutional law at, again, a top law school. He served 3 terms in the Illinois Senate, was elected to the U.S. Senate, then elected President.

Palin, OTOH, was a beauty queen who attended 4 different colleges before finally getting a degree. She served as a city council member, mayor, then governor of one of the states with the smallest budget and smallest populations. She quit that job before she finished her term. She now is on the rubber chicken circuit and starring in a reality TV program.

Oh, thank you...this will be fun. ; )

>>> Obama graduated from a top college and law school.

Bush went to Harvard too, AND Yale!...and so did Bill O'Reilly...and Conan
O'Brien...and even the UniBomber has a Harvard degree...although none of them probably got in through affirmative action or had their tuition paid by "secret sources" as Obama did.

>>> He was a community activist, civil rights attorney, and taught
constitutional law at, again, a top law school.

So you've established that Obama has the credentials to be a community organizer or a hack liberal lawyer, not President. Which is what most of the country has also figured out by now. Palin, on the other hand, has actual government and management experience, both as a Mayor and as a successful governor. Score Palin!

>>> He served 3 terms in the Illinois Senate, was elected to the U.S. Senate, then elected President.

And all with no significant achievement or accomplishment...besides fooling enough people to get elected, that is. He has voted along party lines 98% of the time...when he wasn't voting "present" that is. A well trained parrot could have accomplished as much.

>>> Palin, OTOH, was a beauty queen who attended 4 different colleges before
finally getting a degree.

Obama went to 2 different colleges before getting a degree...and he wasn't pretty enough to win a beauty contest. Sorry, still no edge over Palin.

>>> She served as a city council member, mayor, then
governor of one of the states with the smallest budget and smallest
populations.

Sure...but Obama was not a city council member...or a mayor...or the governor of so much as a girl scout troupe. Obama has never even run a lemonade stand...and his performance as President shows just that.

>>> She quit that job before she finished her term.

So did Barry.

>>> She now is on the rubber chicken circuit and starring in a reality TV program.

And don't forget she's also a best-selling author who's one book, in one year, has outsold all of Obama's self-aggrandizing tomes that have been on the shelves for years. And she's also one of, if not the most, influential political pundits in the country, and a source of constant consternation for both Obama, and liberals everywhere. LOL! Not bad for a "beauty queen."

Getting elected to a higher office is something MANY politicians leave a political position for. What was Palin's excuse? If we're to hold that against someone, then if McCain had been elected President would you call him a quitter too? I certainly wouldn't have called Palin a quitter for becoming VP.

>And all with no significant achievement or accomplishment...besides fooling enough people to get elected, that is. He has voted along party lines 98% of the time...when he wasn't voting "present" that is. A well trained parrot could have accomplished as much.<

What exactly did Palin achieve as Governor of Alaska other than giving birth?

Sorry hon, but once one discounts the snarkiness, you've really introduced nothing of substance. Obama is qualified to be President, was elected President, and there you have it.
