The Art of Stupid

Reasons for not posting something about Sarah Palin:

1. You really could write a post literally every time she opens her mouth.

2. The amount of mainstream media attention she gets enrages me, and even gawking at her sideshow still feels like it's part of the problem sometimes.

3. Other people do it better, and more frequently.

Reasons for posting about Sarah Palin:

1. She is a moron, and speaks constantly.

2. She's one of the most popular figures among the nutjobs that makeup today's Republican party.

3. Her comments often go beyond typical brainless conservative talking points, and into a new frontier of beautifully nonsensical right wing buzzword formulated word vomit. When that happens, I dare you to find better comedy.

With these pros and cons weighed, these are her actual, unedited comments on Egypt: (via 6.54's twitter)
Nobody yet has explained to the American people what they know, and surely they know more than the rest of us know, who it is who will be taking the place of Mubarak and I’m not real enthused about what it is that, that’s being done on a national level and from D.C. in regards to understanding all the situation there in Egypt.

And in these areas that are so volatile right now because obviously it’s not just Egypt but the other countries too where we are seeing uprisings, we know that now more than ever, we need strength and sound mind there in the White House.

Read it again for the full effect.

Some years from now when it's revealed that Sarah Palin was the greatest piece of performance art ever constructed, we need to look back at these remarks as the artist's finest hour.


  1. was there something ahead of that statement?
    If not, who is "they" - the American people? No one has explained to the American people what the American people know? Or is "they" referring to the "Nobody" who did the explaining?
    In the second case it might actually be an accurate accidental assessment of the situation. Indeed, to my understanding, "nobody" is the sole person who has any reliable information on who will take over for Mubarak in Egypt on some sort of long term basis. Furthermore, this same "Nobody" has yet to explain any of their considerable knowledge to the American people as a whole.

    Furthermore, I hear "Nobody" is still wanted on the island of the
    Cylopes for the aggravated assault of one "Polyphemus".
