He really said that.
The Gassiest of Gasbags actually proclaimed that a woman who had been the mayor of a small town in Alaska and who voluntarily QUIT her job as governor of the same state--this same woman who had never travelled outside of the US until just a few years ago--Limbaugh proclaims she's ready to be the president of the United States of America. LOL!
NOTE: Keith Olbermann refers to Limbaugh as a "Comedian Rush Limbaugh."
Oh please, please, please. Let them nominate her.
Rush Limbaugh isn't endorsing Sarah Palin for president in 2012 but he says she's ready for the job now.
"One thing I do not do is follow conventional wisdom, and the conventional wisdom of Sarah Palin is "She's not smart enough. She needs to bone up on the issues. She's a little unsophisticated. Alaska, Where's that?, [She] doesn't have the pedigree,'" Limbaugh told Fox News' Chris Wallace. "She's the only thing that provided a spark for the Republican Party. This is not an endorsement, but I do have profound respect for Sarah Palin. There are not very many politicians who have been through what she's been put through and still able to smile and be ebullient and upbeat. This woman, I think, is tough," he said.
Because what this country needs is--well, not a really smart person who has met some intellectual challenges through completing a rigorous educational experience--NO! This country don't need no pointy-headed person who actually can hold two thoughts in his/her head at one time, who can speak in his/her native language, NO! What this country needs in desperate times is EBULLIENCE!
You know. A cheerleader! You betcha!
Limbaugh says he doesn't follow conventional wisdom. I think we already know that. We know what Limbaugh follows--and it has nothing to do with wisdom. Same with Palin. What could she possibly have to offer this country at this time? Her ability to quit a job before it's finished? That's her legacy: A small town mayor and a big time quitter.
The Limbaugh/Palin crowd really, really doesn't get it.
