Oh, Sarah. Don't You Have A Turd To Polish?

Ahhh…I’m absolutely enjoying the latest piece of political “advice” (or demand) from America’s favorite phony cunt, Sarah Palin.
From her Twitter feed in response to the White House’s decision not to release the gruesome photos of a dead Osama Bin Laden:
Show photo as warning to others seeking America's destruction. No pussy-footing around, no politicking, no drama; it's part of the mission”

Poetry, really.  That woman has a real knack for annoying me with only 160 characters.  A true talent. 

Since the announcement, the debate over whether or not to release the pics has heated up, but I can’t understand the benefit of doing so.  As much as some would love to see America hang Osama’s corpse outside of Boston Harbor like he were Captain Kidd, the idea that a gruesome photo might scare off other potential terrorists is…asinine.  Do we honestly believe that they don’t know the dangers of their business?  Do we think they are unaware that they are being hunted by the American military? How exactly would a picture SCARE them? Hell, you can show average Americans tons of pictures of wrecked cars, they are still gonna talk on their cell phones while driving.

We live in a civilized, 21st century society, we don’t need to plaster a gruesome photo of some dead terrorist on our nation’s newspapers as if it’s some sort of hunting trophy; though perhaps Sarah would be pleased if we stuffed Osama’s head and placed it above the White House mantle.  Not to mention, the photographic evidence will not assuage the “concerns” of the conspiracy theorists who believe Obama announced the news now for political expediency, as if that makes any sense.  What political benefit could Obama get in May of 2011? If this were some planned release, why not make it closer to an election…or even closer to the announcement of new legislation?  On a similar note, even if photos were released, these same people would claim Photoshop fraud and start picking out nonexistent details to prove their erroneous claims.  After all, there are still people who believe we never landed on the moon, the 9/11 truthers still exist, and people will continue to suck in the name of being an asshole for the rest of time. 

But, really, at the end of the day, Palin’s announcement is purely political (shocking I know).  I have no doubt that had the White House released the photos, Palin would spew some bullshit about how we are poking the enemy with our bravado.  The woman is a transparent waste that has little interest in policy, and lots of desire for attention. 


  1. Pretty simple response - ask her if she thinks its acceptable for AQ or any other organization to show pictures of dismembered US troops to their supporters.

  2. That'd be an awesome question. Though i have no doubt she'd bitch it was a "gotcha question!"

  3. Yeah, kind of like "What magazines do you read?" That one regularly ensnares victims in its trap.

  4. Sarah Failin.
