A rare Saturday post, but I just had to comment on this story!
It is referring to Sarah Palin's Facebook comments in response to President Obama's State of the Union address. She says in the first paragraph, and I quote:
"The President’s State of the Union address boiled down to this message: “The era of big government is here as long as I am, so help me pay for it.” He dubbed it a “Winning The Future” speech, but the title’s acronym seemed more accurate than much of the content."
The acronym in question is, of course, "WTF", which stands for "What the F(udge)?" (You thought I really was gonna say "fuck", didn't you? LOL). What I REALLY love is one of the comments in that linked article above, which says the following, and I suggest that you read it aloud in a condescending and pompous voice so that you can get a sense of how pompous it sounds. Ready? Put on your "pompous ass" voice now!
"Serious presidential candidates choose words and perform actions carefully. Serious presidential candidates from both ends of the political spectrum realize that there is little to be gained and much to lose, from cheap shots and sophomoric humor."
HAAAAAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! I love it! Did you or did you not sound like a pompous ass when you read that? Why do I say this? Well friends, imagine if Obama had made this WTF reference to a Palin speech in which she had some expression like "We the Few" or somesuch statment. Do you think the media would be talking about his "cheap shots and sophmoric humor"? HELL NO! And if you think so, then you haven't been reading my blog long enough!
Here is what they would have said, and I can write it pretty much word-for-word:
"Obama demonstrated once again his grasp on current issues and his great understanding of the young and technologically connected generation when he devastated a statement by Sarah Palin, who is still stinging from her previous comments of "blood libel" in regards to the gunman in Tuscon, Arizona, in which one of her attack ads had a crosshair on the district of Rep Gabrielle Giffords who is still recovering from her injuries she suffered on that day. In a speech made yesterday, Palin made reference to "We the Few" in regards to the conservative political newcomers in the House. President Obama had this response: 'She dubbed it a “We the Few” speech, but the title’s acronym seemed more accurate than much of the content."
Not only that, Rachel Madow and the like would have been constantly running his response on their shows, and Saturday Night Live would have had a skit in which an actor portraying him would be using these text acronyms while texting people he knows. See? Do I know these liberal nutjobs or what?
Okay, back to my weekend! :-D
Oh, BTW, be sure to turn off your "pompous ass" voice now, before someone kicks your ass for talking down to them in a pompous voice....
