Sarah Palin’s pull-cord must be stuck. On FOX News (of course), Palin appeared with Chris Wallace to express her outrage that zebras don’t come in pink, but Wallace wanted to discuss boring stuff instead. So the two talked about Presidential nominee filibusters and that dastardly move by the Democrats who invoked the so-called “Nucular” (as Palin so eloquently pronounced it) Option — a rules change that allows a simple majority vote on most nominees and prevents Republicans from obstructing every nominee as planned.
Wallace pointed out to Palin that Obama’s nominees have faced roughly twice the challenges than did Bush nominees. Sarah, of course, thinks that this is a great thing! After all, President Barack Hussein Obama is simply trying to recruit allies in ushering in a new age of darkness — or something.
We have come to expect a little bit of psycho from dear Sarah, but what she said next is enough make us wonder if her batteries are dying:
“As for this rule change that some people are calling the ‘nucular’ option under Senate rules, you know, I guarantee, this week, Thanksgiving Dinner, people sitting around their tables were not going to be talking about the president blessing this thwarting of a balance of power in Congress with new Senate rules called the ‘nuclear’ option. People are going to be talking about our failed big government policies that will bankrupt this country. So, this distraction, this new talking point in the media and with Congress and with Senators and with the president blessing this action, it’s a distraction and it’s a lot of, you know, double standard and Democrat hypocrisy because just a few years ago they were so anti, anti-‘nuclear’ option.”
As if that wasn’t enough of a heaping pile of crazy, Palin continued with perhaps a rant that is crazier than a recent conspiracy theorist with whom CSPAN was forced to contend:
“They were against any thought of Republicans even considering changing these rules, yet now it’s the greatest thing since sliced bread. So, American people, they don’t care about distractions like that. They’re not in the inside baseball Senate rules stuff. They want government to be back on our side. They want it to get out of our lives, and in order to do that we need those who will not fundamentally transform America but will fundamentally restore what’s right about America. we do that by having good judicial nominees in these regulatory agencies and elsewhere…So, this new rule change, it stinks.”
Wallace was unable contain his laughter.
Watch this psycho babble for yourself:
