Palin: 'I Owe America A Global Apology'

Sarah Palin told Fox's Sean Hannity she owes America a "global apology," and she's right. Just not for the reason she thinks she does.

The viewers over at Faux "news" this Thursday evening were treated to the Grifta' from Wasilla doing what she always does best, which is flinging lots of poop against the wall to see what sticks and attacking President Obama for failing to adequately clean up the huge mess that was left on his doorstep by his predecessor George W. Bush.

Palin, like a lot of us actually, was not thrilled with President Obama's speech this week, but to no one's surprise, the reasons she did not like it had nothing to do with anyone who is worried about the possibility of more blow back from escalating our military presence in the Middle East (otherwise known as liberals) and their concerns. She was not happy with the speech because President Obama was not adequately hawkish enough to suit her. That and she just really, really hates President Obama.

The only thing Palin cares about is media exposure so she can keep her pocketbook lined, and she's going to happily go on the air with Hannity or whoever and make her Uncle Rupert happy with segments like this one if it means that Fox check is still coming in on a weekly basis.

Hannity of course didn't bring up the Wasilla Hillbillies and their recent drunken episode at the Iron Dog/snowmachine party in Anchorage.

Palin ticked off the standard Fox checklist of complaints against Obama. Here they are:

Obama said ISIS is not Islamic.


Why haven't we had a victory yet over ISIS?


Call President Obama "boy."


Insult President Obama for playing golf.


Claim John McCain should be president now.


Pretend the status of forces agreement signed by Bush never existed.


Fearmonger that "the bad guys" and ISIS are coming for us and we'd better get some "boots on the ground."


Pretend that Princess Dumbass Of The Northwoods (h/t Charlie Pierce) has anything to contribute to our national dialog on foreign policy and that McCain should not have to be apologizing for nominating her as his VP from now until the day he dies.

That checklist right there is why Princess Dumbass owes the world a big fat apology. We'll all be waiting for hell to freeze over before she or McCain ever admits it.

Can you help us out?
