Oh, I love surprises. It's funny that you never suspect them!

Happy Friday!

Dang. That Palin interview was just embarrassing. Especially this part...

GIBSON: What do you think of the Bush Doctrine?

PALIN: Forgive me if I'm wrong Charlie but I believe George Bush was a Governor not a doctor before he became President.

GIBSON: "Doctrine." As in "tenet" or "philosophy."

PALIN: I'm pretty sure George Tenet was our spy guy before. You aren't going to get me with that trick question.

GIBSON: Here's a hint; it's something President Bush put in place following the September the 11th attacks.

PALIN: His mountain bike? His wife? He puts her in her place all the time.

(Gibson can be heard sighing.)

GIBSON: As I understand it the Bush Doctrine means the United States reserves the right to use preemptive force against countries we suspect of aiding terrorists.

PALIN: Umm. What do you think of it?

GIBSON: Well, I... wait a minute. You're the one that's supposed to answer the question.

PALIN: I think that the Bush Doctrine is good. In fact it's the best doctrine ever. All Americans would be happier if they followed President Bush's doctrine.

Heh heh heh.

I mean, sexist.

Whew! That was a close one.

That Gibson is one liberal bastard.

In a sane world, just letting the wingnuts talk would be the source of their own undoing.

But since Randall is in it, it just ain't a sane world.

Don Snabulus said...

For those (like me) who missed the interview: Here is the section that Dean was spoofing on.

FranIAm said...

On the bright side (there is one????)- at least she did not think that Bush Doctrine had something to do with doctors...

Um, basically. We. Are. Fucked.

Hard.

And not pleasantly.

Sorry to be so graphic. All that AND we will have to pay for our own rape kits too.

Can you tell that I am in a crap mood today???

FranIAm said...

PS - can someone tell me what we can do about the evil of Alaskan extremists who want to take over America???

Dean Wormer said...

randal-

Sexist? Me? Stupidity knows no race or gender.

Take the current President...

don-

That's what I was thinking.

unconventional-

But since Randall is in it, it just ain't a sane world.

You can say that again.

don-

That's the one!

fran-

Ha!

We're going to win this thing but we're not ever going to be able to let up and relax, unfortunately.

franiam-

Personally I'd like to put 'em in a compound with Polar Bears and whomever is stronger will come out alive.

Sal Kilmister said...

Dean Wormer said...

Charlie Gibson flummoxed her? Really? The guy from Good Morning America, right?

Was she at least wearing lipstick?

Liberality said...

Flummoxed indeed!

DivaJood said...

Is it just me, or did she look really uncomfortable in those shoes?

Really, what FranIAm said. If McCain/Palin steals this election, we are soooo fucked.

Randal Graves said...

dean, you man hater.

UC, I resemble that remark.

mwb said...

So close, but you need to run with it. If Governor Palin is Chrissy then I say Senator McCain is Mr. Furley who lives in this delusion little world and thinks he's hip and the kids respect him.

And the Bushes are the Ropers.

I'm just saying...

Very funny - yet the sad thing is that for most Americans, those satirical answers would be perfectly acceptable.

Man, are we in trouble...

pissed off patricia said...

Just ask her to define the word, doctrine
