Palin: 'I Was Forbidden From Telling The Truth About Obama In 2008'


Poor old Snow Snookie... she's still pissed off that she and grandpa McGrumpy lost the election to the black guy. Palin made another appearance on Greta Van Susteren's show this Friday and along with attacking President Obama, took some shots at Karl Rove and the "GOP machine" as well:

Greta Van Susteren explores why the president is calling the D.C. scandals “phony.” In this sneak peek clip of the special, Greta talks to Sarah Palin who exposes that in her 2008 vice presidential run, she was forbidden from talking about Obama’s relationships with both Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers, as well as his job experience.

“I was not allowed to talk about things like that because those ‘elitists,’ those who are the brainiacs in the GOP machine, running John McCain’s campaign at the time said that the media would eat us alive if we brought up these things.”

“What that got us, this kind of complacency and self-censoring of a campaign where we weren’t allowed to tell the truth about who this candidate was – Barack Obama – what it got us was a list of these scandals,” Palin charged.

Ah yes... if she'd just been able to talk about Rev. Wright and call Obama a terrorist a few more times, they might have won. Here's more from our friends at News Hounds: Sarah Palin: I Was Silenced From Blowing The Whistle On Obama’s Ignorance By Karl Rove And The GOP Machine In 2008:

Sarah Palin veered sharply from her usual “lamestream media” and “Obama is destroying America” shtick tonight and suddenly began ranting against Karl Rove and the “GOP machine” that ran the McCain campaign in 2008. That was pretty surprising given that Rove is her colleague and you can pretty much count Fox News, Palin’s employer, as a major part of that GOP machine, if not the actual engine. But the even bigger shocker was that Palin, the poster child for ignorance, lack of experience and who not to choose as a running mate, suggested that if only she had been allowed to blow the whistle on “Obama’s lack of knowledge and job experience” and, of course, Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers, she would have won.

Palin was the lead-off guest on an On The Record special tonight in which host Greta Van Susteren spent an entire hour attacking President Obama over his allegation that Republicans are wasting time over “phony scandals.” [...]

But after those noble sentiments about the “profession of journalism” and “a free America as we know it,” Palin suddenly launched her tirade against Rove and the Republican party establishment - while catapulting herself into the role of would-be Obama vanquisher and America savior. [...]

She held up a large white page of handwritten notes. Mocking Karl Rove’s white board that he often brings to Fox News segments, Palin added, “This is kind of the redneck version of one of those elitist tactics of Karl Rove, how uses his white board, this is the redneck version of the white board and on this lists the scandals that are destroying America, Greta.” Read on...

As Ellen noted at the end of her post, "Apparently, in Palin’s mind, appearing during prime time on a national cable news network - while being on the payroll of said news network – doesn’t count as being part of the media." She also wondered how well this is going to go over with her bosses as Fox since Rove is on the payroll as well. It sure won't break my heart if they gave her the boot.
