The Pinhead Questions the Patriot

I know there are those of you out there who believe Sarah Palin is an idiot.  Let me just say that in this Pinhead and Patriot segment of the O’Reilly hour, Sarah is definitely not the Pinhead.

I’ll report. You decide.


I disagree with her on the number one priority: it’s not plugging the leak, it’s cleaning up the spill. The Government has neither the resources nor technical ability to plug a well a mile under water. Like it or not that’s the purview of BP and the rest of the oil industry.  What the government does have the charter to do is protect the coastline from environmental disaster.  However, Palin is right on the essence of the argument. We need oil, and we will need it for the foreseeable future. Pretending otherwise is a fool’s game.

Trust me on this comrades: we could stand a little more Harry Trumanesque straight thinkin’ and talkin’ around here. I’m not throwing down for Palin just yet, but we’ve seen where “eloquent” rhetoric  delivered by a “presidential” visage takes us. Next time around let’s at least elect someone who believes in America.

You are, of course, free to back the candidate of your choice. But I will gladly choose someone who believes the Constitution still guides our little republic, even if their cadence and word choices are  offensive to some, over someone who thinks the Constitution can be deconstructed and whose very ideology finds America offensive.
