Do you realize the embarrassment of riches I had in picking a video of Sarah Palin insulting President Barack Obama?
Apparently, the foreign media isn't as fearful of the tea party backlash as the American media is. They have no problem whatsoever saying what you will NEVER hear from any American media outlet: Sarah Palin is a traitor.
Sarah Palin has made it to the big time; she’s now being called out by international media. Yesterday, the Russian newspaper Pravda (this same paper has been quoted in numerous Right Wing publications when it criticized President Obama, and was considered a paper of merit at such time) eviscerated Sarah Palin for her unrelenting attacks upon the democratically elected President, at a time when America needs to stand together, united. When members of the International Press call Sarah Palin out for her lack of American patriotism, it’s time for the American Press to pay attention. It’s about time someone did.
Timothy Bancroft-Hinchey writes in Pravda:
“By attacking the democratically elected President of the United States of America at a sensitive time in her country’s history, she shows the tact of a boorish drunkard bawling obscenities at a funeral….
And now she turns not only against the fibre and backbone of her country, but against its democratically elected President, accusing him of being incompetent for not stopping Wikileaks. Where was she and where was her GOP before and during the 9/11 attacks? She accuses President Obama of not taking “steps” to assure the leaks were not published. What “steps”?……
If anything is a threat to the national security of the United States of America, it is this screaming, unrefined oaf with as much class as a searing release of flatulence followed by hysterical giggling at a state banquet. Is this what the people of the USA deserve?
One of my never-ending frustrations with the state of politics today is the absolutely hypocritical double standards in the national dialogue. Democratic politicians and activists will meekly question flagrant violations of law and their Republican counterparts will scream to the high heavens and condemn them on the floors of Congress. But Republicans can say the most egregious and outrageous things and no one will say boo. We still have two wars going on, an economy devastated by Republican policies, millions of people out of work and hurting (and the Republicans playing obstruction games over people's lives) and yet some failed quitter of a governor, who mangles the English language and issues edicts that the media waits breathlessly for on Facebook can insult the President in a variety of ways and the media is afraid to point out the hypocrisy and idiocy.
