Sarah Barastupid

I will donate $100.00 to the charity of choice if anyone can explain to me just WTF Sarah Palin is saying here. To you who compared Palin to the daft Miss South Carolina contestant, and I pooh-pooh’d it, I was wrong. You, sir, were 100% correct.

In case you couldn’t manage to catch what she said, this is the transcript:

Oil and coal? Of course, it’s a fungible commodity and they don’t flag, you know, the molecules, where it’s going and where it’s not. But in the sense of the Congress today, they know that there are very, very hungry domestic markets that need that oil first,” Palin said. “So, I believe that what Congress is going to do, also, is not to allow the export bans to such a degree that it’s Americans that get stuck to holding the bag without the energy source that is produced here, pumped here. It’s got to flow into our domestic markets first.

  1. Ok. Here it is, “Palin for Dummies” Book One:

    “Oil and coal.”

    As you know, oil and coal are both fossil fuels, one of which Alaska has (oil) and one which it doesn’t (coal – at least not in significant quantities). These fossil fuels came from dinosaurs, which everyone knows were saved from destruction by the Grace of God as expressed through His Mercy in Noah’s Ark. But they all died off some 6,000 years ago so that we could have Life in Abundance through burning their remains.

    “Of course, it’s a fungible commodity…”

    Fungible is a word like fungus, and fungus grows best by keeping it in the dark and feeding it bullshit.

    “and they don’t flag, you know, the molecules…”

    I mean, that would be rediculous, putting little American Flags on all those tiny molecules.

    “…where it’s going and where it’s not. “

    Just like me and this reply. No one knows where I’m going, and where I’m not. That’s because I’m the world’s foremost expert on energy. And experts are supposed to speak in a language nobody understands. Just like when I speak in tongues at my church.

    “But in the sense of the Congress today…”

    And thank God Congress lacks any sense.

    “…they know that there are very, very hungry domestic markets that need that oil first.”

    Exxon’s profits aren’t nearly high enough. Neither are the other oil companies. Think of all those starving CEO’s….

    “So, I believe that what Congress is going to do,”

    Because God told me what Congress is going to do.

    “… also, is not to allow the export bans…”

    We’re gonna ship that oil to the highest bidder on the Global Market.

    “…to such a degree that it’s Americans that get stuck to holding the bag without the energy source that is produced here …”

    We’re shipping shopping bags overseas, too. That way Americans cannot get stuck holding the bag which is devoid of energy sources.

    “pumped here.”

    Now, if I say it, it’s ok. But if Obama says it, it’s sexist. There’s loads of virgin oil fields in Alaska, just waiting to be exploited. And the first to drill is the first to get the thrill of that big gusher.

    “It’s got to flow into our domestic markets first.”

    And then overseas – to higher profits.

  2. I hate to sound sexist, but this woman brings a whole new dimension to the term airhead. Archie Bunker would be proud.

  3. That response by Palin made George W Bush sound coherent.

    Walt, you’re not sounding sexist with that statement because Sarah Palin is more like Archie than Edith. Funny that you should mention Archie Bunker. This McCain/Palin duo made me think of the Bunkers the other day so I posted some classic All in the Family videos on my blog. I especially like “Archie on Gun Control”.

  4. Oil and coal? Of course, it’s a fungible commodity

    If she is talking about both oil and coal being interchangeable, then she should have said “they are fungible commodities”. She really is like the boy Bush. Guess McCain wants to make her the next energy czar to replace Cheney. Nothing like giving the keys to the hen house to the drooling fox.

  5. Oh I get it, Amurkan oil stays in Amurka,…..

    so Mexican, Venezuelan, Russian, Iranian, Saudi stays in….?

    Gov Palin, if a BP tanker leaves Valdez with 250,000 tonnes of Alaskan crude freshly pumped from your newly drilled ANWR oil field and Chevron bids $100 to refine it into gasoline in LA and Petrochina bids $120 to refine into gasoline in Shanghai, which direction does the tanker turn – left or right?

    Jesus H Christ does she think we’re as stupid as she seems to be?

  6. Mind you Henry Paulson and the Amurkan government has just stuck every single one of us with the largest debt in history…. it’s all yours people actually (thanks to greed, malfeasance and ‘deregulation’ helped along by Phil Gramm and his Republican cronies) your sons, daughters and grandchildren have just been condemned to a pre-1215 society.

    Michael Palin’s (no relation) take on this will seem a bitter comfort in the times to come.

  7. All I can think of is that line from Princess Bride, “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”
