Gov. Palin expresses intense dislike of…bloggers?

CNNPolitics.com | Palin slams ‘bored, anonymous, pathetic bloggers who lie’Palin has given a steady stream of interviews since Election Day.

(CNN) — Sarah Palin fired a new salvo in her war on the media, unloading in a new interview on her home state paper and “bored, anonymous, pathetic bloggers who lie.”

“…Bored, anonymous, pathetic bloggers who lie annoy me….I’ll tell you, yesterday the Anchorage Daily News, they called again to ask — double-, triple-, quadruple-check — who is Trig’s real mom,” she said, in an interview to be published in the magazine’s [Esquire] March issue.

Sarah Palin is like the kind of weird dreams you get after a serious bout of indigestion. Particularly after you’ve taken a couple of gravol and you can’t summon the energy to rouse yourself enough to escape the dream.

 

 

I might have more sympathy if she didn’t constantly thrust herself into the spotlight to make these quixotic, scattershot attacks at, well, basically everyone that has at some point or another taken a negative view of her (let’s face it) often reason-defying statements. (‘Cause is not the public record of Gov. Palin completely beyond reproach? You betcha. *wink*)

While the whole “anonymous, pathetic bloggers who lie” thing is amusing, what gets me in this latest episode/dream sequence is her indictment of the Anchorage Daily News about claims of a supposed “coverup” of her son’s birth. For ADN’s full response I’ve included extra links below (worth reading if, like me, you just can’t look away from the walking disaster that is Sarah Palin).

Is the turkey a metaphor?

KTUU 2008 Sarah Palin turkey interview

A 2008 news story on KTUU channel 2 in Anchorage. Subject: Governor Sarah Palin is interviewed at a turkey farm while turkeys are slaughtered behind her.

WARNING: Not for the faint of heart! A turkey is slaughtered in this video!

I debated the wisdom in posting this, but then I realized I’m just not that wise. Besides, it’s the “I can’t believe what is happening before my very eyes!” feeling that I wanted to share. What is it about Sarah Palin that generates this sense in viewers so much?

I’ve almost convinced myself that she’s just a very elaborate figment of my imagination, because no actual living person could be this surreal.
