Quote of the (two days ago) Day, or Move over Bushisms

November 26, 2010

As the USS Washington makes its way toward the Yellow Sea, I sit and wonder if Sarah Palin knows where the Yellow Sea is and if she can see it from her backyard.

Sarah Palin isn’t president yet, but that doesn’t mean we can’t ‘refudiate’ the fact that she seems poised to get an early start on her own collections of ‘Palinisms’.

During an interview with Glenn Beck this past Wednesday, Ms. Palin was talking about North Korea’s military attack on South Korea and calmed the nation’s jitters when she reassured us by saying:

“This speaks to a bigger picture here that certainly scares me in terms of our national security policy. But obviously we’ve gotta stand with our North Korean allies.”

Won’t you join me in a relaxing deep breath?

Actually, I’m just joking. We’re all humans and we all make mistakes. Whether they’re political mistakes, geographic mistakes or language mistakes, they’re just mistakes and we need to look past them and celebrate them. How do I know this? Well, I know this from experience, and because Sarah Palin told me.

“‘Refudiate,’ ‘misunderestimate,’ ‘wee-wee’d up.’ English is a living language. Shakespeare liked to coin new words too. Got to celebrate it!'” – (07/18/10)

Palin’s response to her North/South Korean mistake was to simply criticize President Obama.

Enjoy your day. Go out there today and do something fun. Do something exciting. Do something unique? Why? Because “Only dead fish go with the flow.” (07/03/09)

    She makes me angsty. Mostly, I think, because there are a lot of people out there who don’t understand her mistake. Thank you for giving me assurance that you are not one of them :).
