Palin - Post Turtle

While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75-year old Texas rancher, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man.

Eventually the topic got around to Sarah Palin: what did the old rancher think about this woman running for Vice-President of the US of A?

“Well, ya know, Palin is a post-turtle.”

Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what a post turtle was.

“When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a post-turtle.”

The old rancher saw a puzzled look on the doctor's face, so he continued to explain: “You know she didn't get up there by herself, she doesn't belong up there, she doesn't know what to do while she is up there, and you just wonder what kind of dumb ass put her up there to begin with!”

Palin about oil

“In Alaska I had to take on those oil companies,” she says. “I had to break up a monopoly and say the people had to come first.”

another debate quote

"Say it ain't so, Joe, there you go again pointing backwards again. You [prefaced] your whole comment with the Bush administration. Now, doggone it, let's look ahead."

Debate quotes

"Your plan is a white flag of surrender in Iraq and that is not what our troops need to hear today that's for sure,'' Palin said.

“It's not what our nation needs to be able to count on. You opposed the surge. The surge worked."

Jack Cafferty: Palin Is 'Pathetic'

After showing a particularly weak answer from Sarah Palin's interview with Katie Couric regarding the bailout, CNN's Jack Cafferty said, "If John McCain wins this woman will be one 72-year-old's heartbeat away from being President of the United States. And if that doesn't scare the hell out of you, it should." Wolf Blitzer tries to play devil's advocate and suggests that Palin's incoherence might be the result of too much cramming. "Don't make excuses for her," counters a clearly upset Cafferty, who sums up Palin's performance in one word--pathetic."

It’s the Economy, Stupid:

“Ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the health care reform that is needed to help shore up the economy – Oh, it’s got to be about job creation too […] So health care reform and reducing taxes and reining in spending has got to accompany tax reductions,” said Sarah Palin, responding to why it isn’t better “to spend $700 billion helping middle-class families struggling with health care, housing, gas and groceries” instead of bailing out the big financial institutions.

So, I believe that what Congress is going to do, also, is not to allow the export bans to such a degree that it's Americans that get stuck to holding the bag without the energy source that is produced here, pumped here. It's got to flow into our domestic markets first." --Sarah Palin, billed by John McCain as the nation's foremost expert on energy, clumsily answering a question while speaking off the cuff at a town hall meeting, Grand Rapids, Michigan, Sept. 17, 2008
