Update from Jack: This story about Sarah Palin and calling Obama Sambo is an unsubstantiated rumor, so I’m updating this post to reflect that. I don’t like deleting posts (especially when they are the work of other people and have comments attached), so it will remain part of the history of the site. We’ve all been through a lot of drama in this election cycle, and we’re trying to communicate our passion while staying sharp. The name calling isn’t necessary and we’re putting a wrap on that. There are many reasons to dislike Sarah Palin. We don’t need to spread uncertainties. What we know is bad enough.

back to CPL’s post…

If you’re like me, you’re probably overloaded on anything Sarah Palin these days; especially the media’s continued and lame attempt to spin this woman into Mother Teresa, and failing badly.  I would happily join in with the urging to look at her as the distraction she is except for this:

“So Sambo beat the bitch!”

This is how Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin described Barack Obama’s win over Hillary Clinton to political colleagues in a restaurant a few days after Obama locked up the Democratic Party presidential nomination.

According to Lucille, the waitress serving her table at the time and who asked that her last name not be used, Gov. Palin was eating lunch with five or six people when the subject of the Democrat’s primary battle came up. The governor, seemingly not caring that people at nearby tables would likely hear her, uttered the slur and then laughed loudly as her meal mates joined in appreciatively.

“It was kind of disgusting,” Lucille, who is part Aboriginal, said in a phone interview after admitting that she is frightened of being discovered telling folks in the “lower 48” about life near the North Pole.

Then, almost with a sigh, she added, “But that’s just Alaska.”

Racial and ethnic slurs may be “just Alaska” and, clearly, they are common, everyday chatter for Palin.

I don’t think racial and ethnic slurs are “just Alaska”; there are pockets in the lower 48 states where they could be described as being “just racist”, but this woman, should the Republicans manage to steal the election, will be one heartbeat away from the White House, and “just being racist” should not be representative of the United States when she travels abroad.  That “just being Alaska” reminds me of MLB player Manny Ramirez, who toiled for many years in the Boston Red Sox outfield.  He was a lazy ballplayer; wouldn’t run out hits to first base, flyballs would fall in front of his ass for base hits when they should have been caught; and just didn’t hustle at all.

But he could hit mammoth home runs, and in exchange, the Red Sox faithful, because many of those home runs finally got them a World Series Championship after an almost  90-year drought, started saying “That’s Manny being Manny.”

Until the Red Sox management got tired of paying $20 million dollars a year for “Manny being Manny” and shipped him off to the Los Angeles Dodgers, where last heard, he’s renewed his enthusiasm for the game.

So, in a similar sense, uttering racial slurs in public and not caring whether she is overheard, is “Sarah being Sarah?” Get.The.Hell.Out.Of.Here with that.  We don’t need another blatant bigot in the White House. Thanks to GeeShrubya, the United States already has a global reputation for being bullies, warmongerers, and flat out bigoted rip-off artists.  And now, thanks to the lack of judgement on the part of John McCain, we now have another Klanswoman to get her “Ferraro” on, on the National and Global stage.

When I read that one of the many colleges she attended was in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, I said to myself “Stop Right There.  That’s a Klan Bastion.” Those of us in the Federal Government; whenever we had to travel, the one place we requested not to be sent on business (and in many cases our bosses readily agreed) was Coeur d’Alene, Idaho – precisely because some of our colleagues of ethnic backgroud, woke up in their hotel rooms and saw burning crosses, or swastikas spray painted on the government vehicles and shyt like that.  So, it is not surprising that McCain picked an uniquely unqualified individual for his VP; he picked an inherently racist one.  Did he not remember that he got pushed out of the Presidential primary when the slur that his Bangladeshi daughter, Bridget, was actually the product of an affair he had with a sista back in the day, and that putting this woman on the ticket relives that slur?

At the end of the day, there is enough shyt on this woman to fill in the Grand Canyon (hat tip to Truth Seeker for that comment, cause I told her I’d be borrowing it), and float the good ship McCain off the campaign trail permanently; however, I don’t trust or depend on the MSM to do it’s damned job, because they appear they don’t want Obama in the White House anymore than their Republican friends.  They know damned well that RNC convention was little more than a wake; yet they’re spinning it as being the best thing since ice water.

  • Sarah Palin is a joke complete with family drama, questionable ethics and abuse of power – yet, she’s being hailed as the “invigoration of McCain’s campaign.”
  • John McCain gave the most boring speech of his political career – but, he’s still being hailed as a “Maverick”.

And all of it covers up the basic fact that this woman is a racist thug in a dress.  Even Dead-Eye Dick Cheney has some color on his staff (when they are seen, that is), and had the good sense to keep his Klan tendencies under cover as he does himself.  We in the blogsphere must remain ever vigilant, but I’m also hoping that the MSM will get tired of being embarrassed by the National Enquirer as guardians of the fourth estate, because the Enquirer is actually doing the job the MSM used to do – investigate and write up the results.  My post is reflection of my contempt for those who dare to label themselves as a “journalist”, yet allow blatant developments like this one to go virtually unmentioned in the media and on the Sunday Talk Shows.

My post also reminds me of how I felt when Hillary played the race card – except it’s less painful because in Sarah Palin’s case, it wasn’t entirely unexpected, because if she’s caught out, she will attempt to whine about how the Obama camp is picking on her again.

And we should collectively and loudly cry “BULLSHYT” whenever she does.  It’s the only way.
