Sarah Palin hits pols, media on Newtown

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin — who was harshly criticized for her response to the January 2011 mass shooting in Tucson, Ariz. — is telling Americans in the wake of Newtown to put their faith in God and ignore political and media “elites.”

“First, all truly is hopeless if your faith and hope are put in any politician or media elite,” the Fox News contributor wrote on Facebook on Monday night. “That is because the average person is more truthful and responsible than the average politician or media elite. Those who let themselves be terribly disappointed in political leaders as they ignore real problems, aided along with a complicit media bombarding us with irrelevant distractions in order to avoid facing the reality of a fallen culture, should know those distractions are to hide from a finger pointing to the main contributors to much of our problem.”


Palin’s post, “The Only Hope,” asked Americans to place more emphasis on their faith.

“Unspeakable evil slammed America in the beautiful little town of Newtown, Connecticut, just days ago,” Palin wrote. “No words can express the collective shock and sorrow shared by Americans who know the murder of innocent children is the most horrendous crime imaginable. The Connecticut state motto, ‘Qui transtulit sustinet,’ promises that only God can sustain us.”

What we have here is a critical lack of synaptic activity.

20. We're up there, but I don't think we're number 1,

at least according to this article http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2011/01/11/20-deadliest-gun-states-from-mississippi-to-arizona.html . What Alaska is number 1 in is rape and sexual assault.

12. Amazing how these incidents invariably open the bullshit spigots from the usual suspects.

I mean i suppose- given the NRA ties, the moose hunting from the helicopters, etc. they feel obliged to say something.

Still, even the NRA itself has the good sense to just shut the fuck up this week.

...too bad Grifterella didn't just stop there. The irony of a political celebrity telling people to ignore the media and politicians is just too rich!!!

29. Obviously

someone else wrote that for her, she's not smart enough to use big words like those let along know what they mean or know how to spell them.

She's a lot like that Dan Quayle clown, you can see a thousand points of light if you hold a flashlight up to one side of her head.

Hopefully she and Ted Nutgag can go commiserate somewhere out on the tundra and never find their way home.

30. Seriously, "fallen culture?"

The woman has a gift for unintentional irony. She represents a culture that thinks of her as presidential material. That's a fallen culture.
