Desperate to remain relevant and on the front pages of the national fish wraps, everyone’s favorite dysfunctional May/December romance made political asses of themselves today. Yet again.
Politico reported this morning that the Boreal Narcissus has worked herself into quite a lather, insisting that the media is out to get her, just like that mutinous legislature she has to work with, up there, also, in Alaska:
As part of an interview with conservative filmmaker John Ziegler for his new film out this week, Palin said she believes the media made a decision that “we’re going to seek and we’re going to destroy this candidacy of Sarah Palin’s because of what it is that she represents.”
“Obviously something big took place in the media,” she added. It is “very frightening, I think, what the media was able to get away with, this go around.”
Palin suggested that unbalanced media coverage posed a threat to democracy.
Palin has never heard of Fox News, it would seem.
Okay, stop laughing, because if you think Palin sounds like Richard Nixon down the rabbit hole, then John McCain’s pettiness will make you wet ‘em. As a gesture of goodwill at today’s fiscal responsibility summit, President Obama asked McCain to report on the procurement group’s findings. Ever the petulant dickweed, McCain instead took the opportunity to be a sniping little beeyotch:
Mr. McCain stood and thanked him for holding the summit. “I think it was a fruitful discussion,” he said.
Then he raised the issue of runaway military procurement costs, citing as an example the soaring price tag of the next Marine One presidential helicopter. “Your helicopter is now going to cost as much as Air Force One,” Mr. McCain told him. “I don’t think there is any more graphic demonstration of how good ideas have cost taxpayers enormous amounts of money.”
Teddy’s got the video.
Seems like McCain’s dementia is only getting worse, since he obviously forgot that it was his favorite hug buddy, George W. Bush, who okayed the bloated budget for the new fleet of helicopters in the first place. (And we all know how thorough the vetting process for DOD bids was during the last eight years.)
So let’s give it up for the Republican Whiner Krewe, kicking off their own little Mardi Gras parade. Just don’t expect them to throw any dubloons your way. Laissez les mal temps roulez.
