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.
