Sarah Palin Is Unfit To Be President Because…

Filed in National by on November 18, 2009

She’s incapable of representing all Americans.

On Hannity last night, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said she’s “all for” profiling Muslims if it saves “innocent American lives.”

I’m really sick of this sort of talk.  It’s beyond disgusting.  Frankly, it’s un-American – and I’m not one to use that term lightly.  It also sets a dangerous precedent that could be applied to the very groups that form the Conservative/Republican base.  Not that I’d expect Palin and Co. to realize that since this group is incapable of seeing past the next 30 seconds.

And wouldn’t this emerging GOP position wipe out their favorite lone wolf argument?  Would they support profiling all “pro-life” supporters given Dr. Tiller’s murder?  Or all tea partiers and gun nuts given the shoot out in Pittsburgh?  Of course not.  They had better be careful of what they wish for.

    I vaguely recall people being “all for” profiling West Coasters of Japanese heritage to protect “innocent American lives”. How did that turn out again……

    oh right, one of the greatest American injustices of the 20th century.

    To Sarah Palin, a Muslim can never be an American.

    And that is all you ever need to know about that racist bitch.

    But Tea Baggers don’t think Muslims are Americans so in their lizard-like mind, there is no problem with this.

    Obama campaign director found among those waiting for Sarah Palin ‘Going Rogue’ book signing

    Mlive ^ | 11/18/09 | Dave Murray
    GRAND RAPIDS — Robert Burack, of Redford, has a confession. He’s a self-professed “big liberal,” and even served as Midwest high school director for the Obama campaign. So why did he spend the night for a chance to meet Sarah Palin? “I think she’s fascinating,” he said, sitting for the day with his wristband. “I don’t understand everything she thinks, but she’s just so intriguing. I don’t agree with her on the issues, but I really like her as a person.” Barnes & Noble handed out 950 writstbands to allow people to stand in line tonight to have Palin sign…

    ….and I slow down to look at car accidents too. Doesn’t mean I want to get into a car accident next time I drive.

    lizard you know this is what the open thread is for. how old are you? 12?

    Narrow-field, short term thinking.
    A walking self-destruct button.

    In short, everything SP ever demonstrated when running with McCain.

    And that guy in the line will get that signed book up on Ebay where he’ll get some rube who can’t get to the city to pay a pretty penny for that book.

  9. Progressive Mom says:

    This is no surprise. Palin and McCain were very clear during the campaign about who “real Americans” are.

    More from Sarah Palin, who obviously doesn’t understand the meaning of the word literally:

    Via TPM

    “To me, while reading that section of the bill, it became so evident that there would be a panel of bureaucrats who would decide on levels of health care, decide on those who are worthy or not worthy of receiving some government-controlled coverage,” she explains. “Since health care would have to be rationed if it were promised to everyone, it would therefore lead to harm for many individuals not able to receive the government care. That leads, of course, to death.”

    “The term I used to describe the panel making these decisions should not be taken literally,” says Palin. The phrase is “a lot like when President Reagan used to refer to the Soviet Union as the ‘evil empire.’ He got his point across. He got people thinking and researching what he was talking about. It was quite effective. Same thing with the ‘death panels.’ I would characterize them like that again, in a heartbeat.”

    And after she’s done butchering the language, she called for a primary challenger (a la Hoffman) for Lindsey Graham…

    How about in South Carolina, where McCain buddy Lindsey Graham has angered conservatives with his various apostasies? “What I love about the Republican party is how we invite — or at least we should be inviting — healthy competition in our primaries,” says Palin. “It makes every candidate more candid, more truthful, and really wear their positions and their values on their sleeve.”

    “As for Lindsey, individually, I really like him,” she says. “His constituents may want to send him a message to say ‘shore it up’ and come back to some more commonsense, conservative ideals.”

    Priceless. Love the Reagan reference.

  11. She’s speaking against Graham? Wasn’t Lindsey Graham one of McCain’s biggest supporters?
