Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader? Palin Edition

Fri Jan 22, 2010 8:26 pm

So, after Palin's first interview with Glenn Beck (as a member of Fox News), I think a lot of us wanted to know where her intelliigence was on a general scale. For the most part, I think she answered the lob balls that Beck was tossing at her right down the heart of the plate fairly well.

But then there are the ones that are so easy and she misses them, which makes you kind of go hmmm. scratchchin .

Beck: Who is your favorite founding father
Palin: Well, ya know eh, ah, um all of them because the came together with so much....
Beck interrupts: Bullcrap, Who is your favorite... giggle giggle...
Palin:There was so much diversity and their diversity came together etc.
So she lollygags around until the magic light bulb pops into her head and she says "and of course they were led by George Washington"

http://mediamatters.org/mmtv/201001130039

Now, where have we seen this answer "All of them" before  scratchchin . That's right, the bombshell with Couric, when she asked Palin "What Newspapers and magazines did you regularly read before you were tapped for the job of VP?"
Palin: I've read most of them with a great appreciation for media etc etc.
Couric: Which on specifically, i'm curious to know
Palin: uhhhhh um All of them.

Now, looking at the Beck interview, it was a good answer, but if she has to bounce around and try to think
of her favorite founding father, it almost defeats the point of her answer.

I'm looking forward to more laughs Sarah!  laughing  .

Love it.

She is such a dim bulb, so why do so many conservatives think she's The Second Coming?

No fear here. Most don't fear her anymore-they stopped fearing her after the interviews in '08 with Charles Gibson and Katie Couric, when she showed she has little between the ears.

She made it to the governorship in Alaska-THEN QUIT. She's a quitter. She was out of her league even then. And, yes, she can be that stupid. She proves it every time she opens her mouth.

Great to look at though.

You most certainly do fear her because if she gains any sort of traction you guys are toast. Which at this point your toast now. All you have is the far left who will vote for Obama's second term. The independents have abandoned him. At this rate if Ted Bundy was alive he could beat him in a general election. Keep up the hate propaganda though. I know it makes you feel good about yourselves.

LOL.. I hope she does run.. I am a independent, I say let her run please. I do not fear her at all, those are your words. The majority of independents do not like her, it has nothing to do with them fearing her. For me I see her as a quitter, she did not finish her term in office as she was elected to do. She is to polarizing and to far right for me and my fellow independent friends .. So you go and keep with that theory that when we talked down about Sarah it is because we fear her. That is so far from the truth!

She keeps putting herself out there. It is not just the liberals that attack her, it comes from all sides. She loves when the attacks happen to her, she plays the victim. The attacks come with the territory, it does not matter who you are. Both sides are very good at attacking each other and playing the victim.

Wrong. If the electorate are stupid, they are actually more likely to support stupid, simplistic and emotive candidates (I seem to remember a recent president). This is not just an American problem. Western democracy as a whole is on the rocks because, whilst always a fragile, imperfect thing, it had a critical mass of sufficiently educated and moderately astute citizens to maintain the process. This critical mass has dwindled under corporate controlled infotainment over journalism, training over education and, in the US, a mercenary, commercialized campaigning process that leaves no one in congress or the senate free to vote in line with their real convictions. Once the public are either dumbed-down below political competence or so disenfranchised by corporate control of policy, democracy has ceased to operate and then, through our lack of attention, or interest or lack even any attempt to participate in responsible liberty, we will get the candidates and the government we deserve....

There is also virtually no independent following for Ms. Palin either. A recent FOX poll suggests that Palin garners less than 25% support among independents, even when compared to Obama.

Some on here might be that way but it doesn't change the general truth that she lacks knowledge suitable for the attention she seeks and requires a lot of coaching and help to achieve even moderate success in the public eye. Also doesn't change the fact that she has about as good a chance of securing any high office now as John Edwards. Just calling a spade a spade - no hate or fear here.

I could not agree more. the dumbing down and manipulation of the US. End result, Sarah Palin running for President. I honestly do not know anyone who could vote for her on her showing of knowledge. What am I missing when I listen to her? Oh! thats right, I do not listen to her.

That's if they want a dim bulb, she knows what they want. It amazes me, NIK, that every time she shows how clueless she is, she goes up in your estimation. Why is that? She couldn't even hack 2 years in Alaska, and you think she'd be a good POTUS?  rotfl 

Quoting NIKV69 (Reply 7):

You most certainly do fear her

NIK, please don't suppose to tell me what I do and don't believe, OK? I laid out my evolution of what I think about Sarah Palin from the time she was named VPOTUS nominee until now. There was fear, because she was a new, fresh, vibrant voice when she first came on the scene, and it looked like McCain had scored a big victory. But like every candidate, people want to know there is substance there, and when I found out there was none-thanks to the interviews I mentioned, I no longer had ANY fear of the woman. None. And I have none today. I think according to her beliefs, she's a decent person, but I also think she has no qualifications to be anywhere near the presidency. And people don't want a QUITTER to be in there, so she's lost all credibility with most people in this nation, most importantly with independents who will consider voting Republican.

But you? You think she's like the Second Coming? She's done nothing to prove that she's qualified at all. And, please, before you start bitching about the President, an overwhelming majority of Americans thought and still do think he's qualified, so don't even go there. He's head and shoulders above Sarah in intelligence and in awareness of what is going on in the world. That's just a non-starater, NIK.

Quoting NIKV69 (Reply 7):

Again, it shows how absolutely out-of-touch with reality you are. If that's the case, then why are his approval ratings still around 50%? Are you telling me 50% of voters are far left? We both know that's crap, NIK. The truth is that, right now, the President would beat any GOP hopeful. Could that change? Absolutely. A lot is going to happen in the next 2 years. Anything is possible, but to say he's toast, and that only the "far left" support him is sheer insanity on your part. Again, it just tells me you're so far to the right that you can't even see the center, let alone the far left. Astounding.

What makes them assholes, exactly? Use specific examples that you can cite - no rhetoric allowed.

Are you joking? Did you miss the entire thread regarding Pat Robertson's claims that Haiti is now suffering because they made a pact with the devil in order to free themselves from the French? Or his assertion that 9/11 happened because of gays, abortion, and single mothers? Or what about Limbaugh's criticism of Michael J Fox in which he claimed that he exaggerates the effects of Parkinson's? Both of them are certified assholes.

Quoting Falcon84 (Reply 23):
Again, it shows how absolutely out-of-touch with reality you are. If that's the case, then why are his approval ratings still around 50%? Are you telling me 50% of voters are far left? We both know that's crap, NIK. The truth is that, right now, the President would beat any GOP hopeful. Could that change? Absolutely. A lot is going to happen in the next 2 years. Anything is possible, but to say he's toast, and that only the "far left" support him is sheer insanity on your part. Again, it just tells me you're so far to the right that you can't even see the center, let alone the far left. Astounding.

Not to mention that according to the poll that Aaron posted, the constant battle cry that independents have abandoned Obama is patently false. Also notable is that more Republicans (17%) would vote for Obama over Palin than any of the other hypothetical Republican candidates. In fact, fewer Republicans who participated in that poll would vote for Palin than for a tea bagger. That speaks volumes about how "in tune" she is with what this Country wants.

Joh is an interesting comparison. About as stupid but also rat cunning. However while he got elected countless times in QLD, Canberra - read Washington for Palin - was a bad case of over reach.

Really? Michael J. Fox has admitted that he over-medicated for the commercial that Rush commented on to ENHANCE the effect. This is proven. Go look it up.

Michael J. Fox has also admitted that he under-medicated when he testified in front of Congress. This is proven. To give you a start, I think he admitted this on ABC News. Go look it up.

Of course, I'll get the "I'm not going to look it up, you need to prove it." Which, let me suggest to you, you might want to do before posting such lies.

Rush. Number one in radio ratings. Hannity, Number 2. Beck Number 3.

Rush isn't on TV. Hannity is. Number 2. Beck is also on TV. He's Number 3.

Olberman, not on Radio. He is on TV. What, he's number 10, on a good day?

Yes, I do get the picture.

Assholes don't usually get and KEEP their ratings. They might for a while but they get old. Rush has been number one for two DECADES. Hannity has been there since 2002 (radio) and before that on TV via Hannity and Colmes. Beck on the radio since 2004 or even before that, and last year on TV.

Again. Yes. I do get the picture.

Quoting GuitrThree (Reply 34):

Are you talking about the interview he did with Katie Couric? He did indeed state he was over-medicated in that interview, but nowhere did he claim that this was done in order to enhance the effects of Parkinson's. Furthermore, he notes in that interview that one never knows when the effects are going to be worse and when they will be better. Furthermore, assuming he is adequately medicated in the Kouric interview, it's not like he's not showing symptoms of Parkinson's.

Limbaugh said on his show that Michale J Fox had either not taken his medications or that he was acting. Neither is true. Limbaugh also stated:"This is the only time I've ever seen Michael J. Fox portray any of the symptoms of the disease he has," Limbaugh said. "He can barely control himself." There have been plenty of times where he had made public appearances prior to the ad in which the effects of Parkinson's were clearly visible. Finally, mockingly imitating him was highly inappropriate.

So yeah, I wasn't posting lies and I still stand by my assertion that Limbaugh is an asshole.

So say you and your like-minded brethren on the left. There are plenty of us center and center-right folks who think otherwise.

Regardless, I do find it disconcerting that the liberal double-standards apply when it comes to name-calling, though. If I or any center/center-right folks called Keith Olbermann or Rachel Maddow names you'd be arguing that the comments were unconstructive name-calling, and nothing more. Yet somehow it's perfectly acceptable to you to throw the "asshole" term on people whose political opinions you disagree with.

It's disappointing.

I am republican and will never vote democrat in my life unless Palin is the one I have to vote for. She is just stupid. But then again she is making all this money so how stupid she really is we might never know all I do know is I DONT want her running my country but I know she never will.

Evidently we are all under the 5th grade level ... how dare we not give the president a gold star for spreading 800 billion dollars around among the clever operators. And its not 800 billion either ... its 2.3 trillion ... that is what the fed dumped into the "system" with no accounting.

Joe Klein .... man they just don't get it . And I love how the liberals are now claiming we are misinformed by our press outlets .. something we never heard when they were covering the presidents tracks and having issues "out of bounds". No one ever discussed a 25 billion dollar overnight payment to CB Ellis ... ( D.Fienstiens husbands company ) that conveniently was in the stimulus plan . Now this guy tells us we are stupid because we don't understand how the wizards of smart stole trillions from us. Amazing and verbatim the people claiming Palin is stupid as well , we see ya coming and going .

What i find funny about these political threads is that automatically everyone assumes that all teh Dems on here are Liberals and the Repubs on here are well, Conservatives. I think the Repubs have forgotten what true Conservatisim is and most of them are so far right that pretty much all the crazies and tea party people have taken over. Ok, maybe too much Liberalism is bad too, but what the GOP represents these days is seriously stupid, idiotic, and dangerous.
