Hannity & Palmreader Barbie piss and moan over "Unconstitutional, Un-American" HCR "tricks"
Palin and Hannity agree: 'Procedural tricks' on health care are 'unconstitutional' and 'un-American'
By David Neiwert Thursday Mar 18, 2010 12:00pm

Sean Hannity interviewed Sarah Palin on his show last night, and it sounded like she was talking in a tin can, despite the pretty Alaskan backdrop. It sounded, in fact, like one of Sarah's old performances as an Alaska sports reporter; evidently a professional studio was not available.

But who cares about such niceties when you're busy accusing Democrats of violating the Constitution? Considering that the charge is not just loony but grotesquely hypocritical, standing on a soap box on a street corner might have been the most appropriate setting; a tin-can studio is a step up.

Palin claimed that the health-care reform effort was "about government control," and that the process in the House for passing it is "an unconstitutional process" being "crammed down our throats":

Palin: It's against the will of the people, it's undemocratic, it's un-American, this process. And, uh, if we don't stand up and become very enthused about calling our politicians on this, then more of this is gonna take place.


Later, Palin asks: "Is the Constitution not worth the paper it is written on, then?" Hannity natters on in agreement, claiming that the "Slaughter rule" would be challenged in court by his buddy Mark Levin.

Palin then added:

I think, Sean, that in our lifetime, this is the most undemocratic, unAmerican step that we'll have ever seen our Congress take. It's appalling, it's -- it takes my breath away that they would think that this is OK to do.

But again, we can't feign surprise. Remember, this is what Barack Obama had promised in the campaign, he said as a candidate that he was just days away from beginning the transformation of America.

Now, a lot of us love America, and we don't want to see this transformation into something that is unrecognizable, this European style of health care, in this case that we're talking about. But no, so many of us that love America and believe in what our Founding Fathers providentially had crafted for us, you know, our documents including our Constitution -- we don't agree with this fundamental transformation of America that Obama promised us. We voted for him anyway, he was elected anyway. And now Americans are kind of realizing that's what he meant by a fundamental transformation of our great country.


Yes, it's too bad for Palin and Hannity that a large majority of Americans greeted Obama's promise of a "transformation". That's what elections are about, you know.

And the notion that this transformation entails abrogation of the Constitution is just laughable -- because the procedures they're wailing and gnashing their teeth about have been part of standard House procedures for years.

You sure didn't hear Palin or Hannity complaining when Republicans used these same rules willy-nilly during their tenure of complete control of Congress earlier this decade. Indeed, Republicans "set new records" in their use of the so-called self-executing rules that are now in play for health-care reform: http://crooksandliars.com/david-neiwert/palin-and-hanni...

4. What does this paragraph mean?
"Now, a lot of us love America, and we don't want to see this transformation into something that is unrecognizable, this European style of health care, in this case that we're talking about. But no, so many of us that love America and believe in what our Founding Fathers providentially had crafted for us, you know, our documents including our Constitution -- we don't agree with this fundamental transformation of America that Obama promised us. We voted for him anyway, he was elected anyway. And now Americans are kind of realizing that's what he meant by a fundamental transformation of our great country."

I simply have no idea what this means!
What the hell does this mean?!?

21. Sarah Palin
can rail against "European"-style healthcare but we know that in her her family they avail themselves of that kind of socialist healthcare from birth. Her daughter, Bristol, currently has her child enrolled in the "socialist" Alaska native American healthcare system in place for Alaska natives and their dependents, and she is allowed to because her father is 1/8th Yupik. I think that makes Palin's grandchild 1/32nd Native Alaskan but let's not get too picky.

A system that is good enough for the Palin family should be good enough for the rest of us but because she is such a liar and hypocrite she won't mention that and you'll continue to hear her spreading her lies to the American people via the republican house organ, Faux noise.

Her handlers must have constant contact with her to keep her from fuggen up.

What's going on is her stylist hates her
Her makeup looks pretty rough too--when was the last time you saw a woman on television with invisible lips, like Sarah has?

17. Every time I look at the woman, I just hear ...
"I can see Russia from my house!" To which I want to respond, "And I can see the for rent sign in your empty skull!" This woman never says anything of value, she never says anything coherent. She botches even her pre-written talking points. Whomever drug this galloping goon out of her nearly in Russia house deserves all the scorn she gets (and deserves) and twice as much. I always thought Shrub was a super dummy, but then Sarah Failin comes putzing out of Alaska to make even him seem like he could register an IQ score. Her husband should, by law, be required to wear an "I'm with Stupid" shirt. GAH I hate that woman!
