From coverage of the already insanely over-covered paid appearance of Sarah Palin in front of 600 tea-bagging rubes.
[Truck driver Gail] Dorody’s main concern is that the rest of the world no longer has respect for America.
“We have a president that goes around apologising for us. For what? If it wasn’t for us most of the countries out there would be destroyed,” she says.
If Ms Dorody would pull her head out of her ass and read or watch something other than Fox News she might realize that the only reason the rest of the world respects America in the slightest right now is because of Obama. Seriously, we all hated Bush and by extension the people who elected him. Under Bush the US took the unprecedented international solidarity that followed the 9/11 attacks and squandered it all in less than 8 years.
The problem with dealing with political opportunists like Palin is that while you can fight fire with fire, you can’t fight blinkered reactionary stupidity with anything. You just have to hope it burns itself out.
