Palin Wonders How Kerry Knows Her Name
It’s a mystery..
Former Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin is apparently surprised that former Presidential nominee, Senator John Kerry even knows her name. I’m guessing he watches TV, or reads things that are put in front of him. Or goes to a bookstore.
Kerry gave Palin the moment she’d been undoubtedly waiting for – attention from the big bad Democrats. Having an enemy is the WD-40 that greases up the Palin jaw hinges – Alaska Republican Party Chair Randy Ruedrich, David Letterman, President Obama, former State Senate President Lyda Green, former radio host Dan Fagan, Russia, the good ol’ boys, the Republican party “machine,” hateful bloggers, State Senator Hollis French, the feds, disgruntled ex-employees who write books, Europe, ethics complaint filers, and some guy in Juneau who complained. We’re like an unlikely scout troop that has little in common but we all sport the same ‘Hater’ merit badge. And Palin never cared much whether she was firing up, or laterally, or down. Her vindictive verbal shrapnel was indiscriminate. Lots of Kaboom, and little strategic aim.
It all began when Mitt Romney said that Russia was America’s top political foe. I’m quite sure nobody was more surprised to hear this than the Russians, as Al Qaeda, and the Taliban high fived, and North Korea heaved a sigh of relief.
And of course, in political circles, nobody gets to mention Russia without connecting it somehow to Sarah Palin who infamously claimed that the fact that you can see a tiny remote Russian island from a tiny remote Alaskan island made her a foreign policy expert. She never did say, “I can see Russia from my house,” but the notion that she believed physical proximity without any substantive diplomatic interaction made her qualified to be Vice President spoke for itself.
Kerry mentioned Palin by saying, “Folks, Sarah Palin said she could see Russia from Alaska. Mitt Romney talks like he’s only seen Russia by watching Rocky IV.”
As soon as her name was uttered in the halls of the Marxist/Socialist/Communist/Islamist/Leftist/Pallin-around-with-terrorist Convention, the Palin machine sprang into action. With a looming entrée into irrelevancy, having not been invited to the Republican convention, and rumors that her contract with Fox News will not be renewed, Palin has once again taken on the mantle of the plain little ol’ underdog. That’s the way she used to be before becoming governor, but like her old red consignment store suits, this meme just doesn’t fit anymore.
After calling the “Democrat convention” “a bunch of bunk here tonight though,” she said that Kerry “diminished himself by mentioning my name” in his speech to the Democratic National Convention. If merely mentioning someone’s name you don’t like ‘s the standard for diminishment, it may explain Palin’s weight loss over the last couple years.
“How does he even know my name?” the breathless former Governor, VP nominee, best-selling author, reality TV show star, Fox News commentator, and media magnet wanted to know.
“I mean aren’t these guys supposed to be these bigwig elites who don’t waste their time on the little people like me, me representing the average American who yeah I did say in Alaska you can see Russia from our land base and I was making the point that we are strategically located on the globe and when it comes to transportation corridors and resources that are shared and fought over, Alaska and I as the governor, had known what I was doing in dealing with some international issues that had to do with our resources that could help secure the nation… So it’s funny that he would take a little pot shot like that, but it’s funny he even knows my name. ”
Funny strange, or funny ‘haha?’ Or funny delusional*?
