Sarah Palin delivered a speech prior to her keynote at the Republican Tea Party fest in Nashville scheduled for this weekend. In addition to touching on government spending and the bankster bailout, Palin said the underwear bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab should have been grilled before he was read his Miranda rights.

“We need a commander in chief, not a professor of constitutional law,” she said, according to the Wichita Eagle.

In fact, Obama was not a professor of constitutional law. He was a “senior lecturer” at the University of Chicago Law School. In academia, there is a vast difference between the two titles, not that we should expect Palin (or her script writers) to get it right.

Palin, the darling of the Tea Party movement (or the one hijacked by statist neocons), is merely echoing the Republican idea that supposed terrorists accused by the government do not deserve Fifth Amendment protection and should be shuffled off to the torture camp at Gitmo straight away. In other words, if the government says somebody is a terrorist then they do not have a right to remain silent. If the government says you’re a terrorist, well then by gosh you must be one.

Neocons say skipping the Fifth Amendment is crucial in such cases because the government needs to get “actionable intelligence” from terror suspects.

But what kind of intelligence would they get from Mr. Fizzlepants, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab? That he was escorted to the airport in Amsterdam by a well-dressed Indian man who was obviously a military or intelligence operative? Do neocons expect us to believe that if the government waterboarded Abdulmutallab they would get information on sleeper cells or nefarious plots in the making by al-Qaeda, the phantom terror group cobbled together by the CIA?

Palin supports the neocon concept of forever war against Muslims. In this respect she is just like Obama and the Democrat version of Bush’s neocons.

In December, Tea Party Sarah lauded Obama’s decision to send another 30,000 troops into the Afghan meat grinder. “At long last, President Obama decided to give his military commanders much of what they need to accomplish their mission in Afghanistan,” Palin (or one of her handlers) wrote on her Facebook on December 1, 2009.

“We now have an opportunity to build a bipartisan consensus in support of a vital national security priority: defeating Al-Qaeda and its violent extremist allies in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and ensuring that these countries never again serve as bases for terrorist attacks against America and our allies,” she wrote. “We should be in Afghanistan to win.”

In regard to the Middle East, Palin sounds just like a run-of-the-mill neocon. “I believe that the Jewish settlements should be allowed to be expanded upon, because that population of Israel is, is going to grow,” Palin told Barbara Walters last November. “More and more Jewish people will be flocking to Israel in the days and weeks and months ahead. And I don’t think that the Obama administration has any right to tell Israel that the Jewish settlements cannot expand.”

Once again, Palin gets it wrong. In fact, people are deserting Israel in record numbers, especially educated professionals “who could not be integrated in Israel because of the unsuitability of their professions to the Israeli work force.” Others are leaving because the country is ruled by insane warmongers who are determined to start another war, this time with Iran. Palin supports the Israeli policy of stealing Palestinian land. She also apparently supports the Israeli bombing of civilians in Gaza.

Sarah Palin is a neocon Stepford wife. As Justin Raimondo noted back in November of 2008, Sarah had her head stuffed with neocon talking points in the lead-up to the election when she was John McCain’s running mate. “Strapped to a chair and forced to read a year’s worth of Weekly Standards out loud while having the audio version of the complete works of Norman Podhoretz piped into her ears, poor pistol-packin’ Sarah was no match for her neocon interrogators, who ironed all those right-wing populist quirks out of her malleable mindset. Now, Sarah, repeat after me: jury nullification is nuts, forget about Alaskan independence, and always, always remember, you hate Ron Paul!”

Raimondo made his albeit sarcastic point in response to a report in the London Telegraph. It stated: “Comments by the governor of Alaska in her first television interview, in which she said NATO may have to go to war with Russia and took a tough line on Iran’s nuclear program, were the result of two weeks of briefings by neoconservatives.”

War with Russia and attacking Iran? How is such warmongering insanity compatible with the Tea Party movement? Are Tea Party supporters ready to get behind ever increasing Pentagon budgets (more than $500 billion in 2009) in order to combat terrorists created by the CIA and Mossad?

Or is the new Tea Party about spending billions on mass murder while cutting “discretionary” spending? Sounds like Obama to me.

Sarah Palin is a thinly disguised Trojan Horse. Her mission is to subvert the Tea Party movement and shepherd its supporters back into the big government and all-war-all-the-time Republican camp.

Sarah Palin is a neocon. If the folks who are paying around $500 to attend the Republican love fest in Nashville cannot see this, they are about as clueless as Sarah who would be a babe lost in the woods without her Republican and neocon handlers and speech writers (and Facebook scribblers).

Finally, it really is scary how easily the Tea Party movement was played. On CNN last night, one attendee to the fest in Nashville said the idea is to change the Republican party from the inside out and make it the party of the Constitution and individual liberty.

I had to laugh. If Tea Party supporters believe this is possible, they may be interested in some oceanfront property I have for sale in Arizona.

Tea partiers must remove their blinders! If Sarah Palin runs as a candidate in 2012, the conservative vote will be divided and the White House will be turned over to Obama for another four disastrous years, has one year not been enough? The Tea Party, conservatives and republicans should work together to the bring the party under Reagan conservatism, this will not only ensure victory in the house races of 2010 but in the 2012 presidential race as well.

2) Are you trying to cry foul about Sarah, the pit bull with lipstick, being attacked? Really now. All she can do is attack. She wants to bomb bomb bomb Iran and thinks we are ripe for a revolution. At least that's what her handy notes said.

Darth put alot of effort into that post. Can't you at least contest one of his many points? To think Mrs. Palin is not a darling of the media ignores her spot on Fox, her best seller, and her magazine covers at every grocery store. I'll keep it simple and ask just one question:

Yeah, I'm certain she had much to do besides prepare for that speech. Yep, she juggled her busy schedule and still prepared for that speech. Oh, wait a minute, maybe she didn't have anything else to do...isn't she sort of unemployed?

I would much rather have my president concentrating on the real issues than spending hours preparing for a speech. That is time-management at its best. All this chatter about the prompters is just that--a bunch if chatter.

Lest we forget, here's the only off the cuff interview she ever did:

Palin Katie Couric Interview

Obama may utter an "Uh" now and then, but Palin utters blithering nonsense. Want me to post the interview with her handlers complaining that she didn't know that there was a North and a South Korea?

She's ignorant. That could be overcome if she worked at it but she's lazy, too.

She has found her place. She'll make millions for herself and raise millions for the Party by giving speeches with focus group approved attack lines that rally the faithful but have no real content. More power to her. I wish the Dems had such a money machine. Lets not pretend that she herself is developing policy ideas in her mostly vacuous mind though. She wouldn't last five minutes with Obama.

As for bloopers, I remember quite a few from a former president you may know. Here are but a few:
Jimmy Carter:
1) "I am convinced that UFO'S exist because I have seen one."

2) The Democratic Nat'l Convention when he introduced Humphrey as
'Hubert Horatio Hornblower Humphrey'.

3) And how about that debate with Ronald Regan on arms control
when he said he had consulted with his thirteen year old
daughter Amy and she had told him the most important issue was
nuclear arms control.

4) And speaking of nuclear--I believe he still hasn't mastered
that one yet.

Not a Palin fan but fair is fair.

I remember the night they saw the UFO! He came home and told us about it. It was before a speech to a Lions Club and they stood around outside and watched it. The county sheriff was there and a Judge; all presumably sober as, well... a judge. He didn't think it was aliens though.

Jimmy Carter UFO incident

I also remember the Hubert Horatio Hornblower gaff. The Horatio Hornblower series by C. S. Forester used to be his favorite books when he was a kid. He gave them to me when I was about 10. I laughed and ribbed him about it after the speech.

Amy has verified that she told him that nukes were the most important issue to her. I don't know where she got it from when she was twelve. She was precocious. He used to regularly ask us what our most important issue was and we'd discuss them around the dinner table while we ate. It was such a normal thing for us that I didn't recognize it as a gaff at the time to say you discussed issues with kids. ("Consulted" may be somewhat of a stretch but it is what it is, right?)

NU-ku-ler, three syllables. Ask Adm. Rickover not those German guys we brought over.

I can't really see Tyrone. Dan Quayle took my ending "e" to use it on one of his words.

If I was Sarah, I'd be holding a press conference now complaining about being attacked by bloggers. Oh, poor pitiful me! Tomorrow, Rush would be organizing a rally in my support where grown people would rend their clothes; decrying the unfairness of it all. I'd make an appearance and give a speech for $50 thousand dollars. WorldNetDaily would give away free subscriptions at the rally and teenage mothers would name their out-of-wedlock babies after me. FOX would cover it live.

Why can't I get a job like that?

Submitted by MYTMITE on Thu, 02/11/2010 - 3:51am.

the night of the UFO incident.
I remember Amy very well from her days at Woodward. Those were the days when she had the back of her hair dyed black as was the style to some of the young girls at the time. Met your dad a few times when she was a student there. Also had a nice conversation with him on a plane ride--he stopped to talk to me as he did several others and we talked about the times we had met before while Amy was attending Woodward. He was always very nice and pleasant. And I don't think it was the idea that your dad discussed and asked for opinions from all of you around the dinner table, as many of us do or have done with our children. I think it was more the venue where he brought it up that kinda sorta made people look on it as a 'blooper' or whatever they were called way back then. And I am sure your father realized as Sarah Palin and others who are out in the public realize that when you are in the spotlight that everything you say is going to be fair game to someone.

As for nuclear and correct pronunciation, Admiral Rickover is not accepting phone calls at this time.

If you asked nicely I am sure Dan Q would be glad to return your 'e' as he has quite a few extras, I do believe.

Regarding getting a job like Sarah's--sure you would not have a problem--bet there would be lots of places that would welcome you with open arms.

Glad to see you can take a little ribbing.

Obama is so narcissistic and full of himself and thinks that he has the American people fooled into thinking that he actually knows what he is doing.

He doesn’t have a clue on how to lead a country. He is weak, divisive, and ineffectual.

If I might enter this little banter, I would state that Mr Obama is hands down the better orator, but so were the likes of Hitler, Mussolini, and that guy Jones down in the Carribean.

For the life of me, I cannot understand the phobia possessed by those on the left of the former governor of Alaska. Could it be that those 'Incredible Talking Heads' of the Mainstream Media are dispensing some form of addictive Kool-ade?

The former governor has not been endorsed that I'm aware of any run for office. So what's the big deal?

Obama is by far the better orator. More like John Kennedy, Churchill, and Truman than those you mentioned. Besides, I saw a TV documentary about that Mussolini guy and I couldn't understand a word he said.

As for the phobia of Palin, that seems to me to be all from the right; a strawman argument made up to give critics something to sneer at, exactly like the Obama as messiah argument. Have you ever heard a Democratic leader say that?

Palin has been Dan Quayled and for good reason. She has her focus group positions fed to her by Cheney's staff but, just like Quayle, she can't explain why she has any particular position because she's intellectually lazy and hasn't done the work to develop the background knowledge to discuss anything in-depth. That's why she can't do interviews.

Her supporters ignore this and think that someone running for President shouldn't have to be able to answer really tough questions like "what magazines do you read?". So they construe it as the MSM unfairly ganging up on her. Her supporters willingness to turn the country over to someone with a high schoolers knowledge of issues is disturbing.

Imagine Palin debating Jeane Kirkpatrick.

I would agree Jeff, that her being Quayled is for good reason, the former governor is not close to being Presidential, at least in my book. On the other hand, however, our current President is beginning to appear more and more 'professorial' with his chin up and veering both right and left. To some he may exude leadership, but for me it's like going back to college as an adult and being lectured by a professor with no practical experience.

Even sadder, his VP's most prominent brain emminations are his hair plugs.

No one forced her to write a book and then appear on every talk show that would have her, take a job on FOX, rake in the cash for personal appearances, and oh yeah, quit her job.

I don't have anything against Palin cashing-in on her fame/popularity, but she's going to have the bricks thrown at her like anyone else that seeks constant attention and who isn't very bright in the first place. If she is the voice of "the common people," it's once again an example of the tremendous foresight of our Founding Fathers of this country who had contempt for the "common man" and thought they were basically too dumb to be trusted.

Let me re-phrase that to "some" of the Founding Fathers thought the common man to be too dumb/ignorant/uninformed. The Federalists like John Adams, Washington, Hamilton, Madison, etc held that viewpoint. The concept of representative democracy or a republic has historical roots in the limitations of everyone back in those days having access to information and being able to express an opinion, but there is a certain contempt in Federalism towards the common man in my opinion. Not saying I agree/disagree with that, but it seems the present form of our government was expressly designed to keep the masses from having the kind of power that would lead to an unsustainable form of governance.
