Ass Ann Coulter explains:
Palin made some embarrassing gaffes.
She complained that we didn’t have enough “Arabic translators” in Afghanistan — not realizing the natives don’t speak Arabic in Afghanistan, but rather a variety of regional dialects, the most common of which is Pashtun.
Speaking to military veterans one time, Palin said, “Our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes — and I see many of them in the audience here today.”
She bragged about passing a law regulating the nuclear industry that it turned out never became a law at all.
Some days Palin said Venezuela’s dictator Hugo Chavez should suffer “regional isolation” — but then on others she’d say she supported the president’s meeting with Chavez.
She told one audience about recent tornados in Kansas that had killed 10,000 people. In fact, a dozen people were killed in the tornados.
She referred to the “57 states” that make up the U.S.
Speaking of her eldest daughter’s pregnancy, she said Bristol was being “punished” with a baby.
Oh, but wait… It continues:
As you probably know — or guessed by now — none of these gaffes were uttered by Palin. They are all Obama gaffes. Luckily, he made them to a star-struck press that managed not to ask him a difficult question for two years.
Yeah, I haven’t ripped on the President Elect for a while.
Truth be told, I really did think that the above gaffes were made by Palin until around the infamous 57 states Freudian slip. I thought they were embarassing, and that she should have been better informed before speaking about such things.
They are embarassing. But it was Obama who uttered them, not Palin!
It just goes to show the kind of blatant double standards that are so prevalent in the mainstream media, that even I expect them to lay on the criticism on Conservatives while gushingly cooing at Liberals.
Be honest, what did you think of them… Before realizing they were examples of Obama’s ignorance? If you thought such uneducatedness disqualifies Palin for ever running for the Presidency in the future, then what does that say about Obama becoming President in less than 2 weeks’ time?
