The Sick of Sarah Palin Club: Sen. Chuck Hagel Gives The Palin Four Thumbs Down

Is it just me, or did Republican Sen. Chuck Hagel jack John McCain’s “maverick,” busting heads with your own party angle, years ago? Ever since McCain cuddled up to Georgie Porgie in hopes of tricking the party base into liking him, that whole “maverick/Country First” label reads more like “party capitulator/McCain First.”

Hagel didn’t mince words. He’s a member of the club.

Sen. Chuck Hagel of Nebraska yesterday became the nation’s most prominent Republican officeholder to publicly question whether Sarah Palin has the experience to serve as president.

“She doesn’t have any foreign policy credentials,” Hagel said in an interview with the Omaha World-Herald. “You get a passport for the first time in your life last year? I mean, I don’t know what you can say. You can’t say anything.”

Then Hagel said something I’ve been thinking ever since this insane — the most insane of all the Palin talking points — was first pushed by Republicans.

Palin has cited the proximity of Alaska to Russia as evidence of her international experience.

Hagel scoffed at that notion.

“I think they ought to be just honest about it and stop the nonsense about, ‘I look out my window and I see Russia and so therefore I know something about Russia,'” he said. “That kind of thing is insulting to the American people.”

Indeed! I feel her whole selection was insulting to the American people. But some Americans, unlike us and Chuck, don’t realize they’ve just been told they’re idiots. You just had an email-hiding, rape-kit-charging, book-banning, dictatorial, your-body-her-choice, “I can see Russia from my house” farce foisted up on you and you shouted, “Awesome! She’s hot and makes moose burgers! And she is got a knocked up teenage daughter! She’s just like me! She’s real!”

Of course Bush was elected twice. Of course!

Welcome to the club, Chuck!

In other news, at a women’s forum in North Carolina Thursday morning, Michelle Obama quipped that voters should choose based on the issues, not because they like a candidate or think “she’s cute.”

La Femme Obama then clarified with a smile and laugh that she was referring to herself.

Now, isn’t she a sly one?

  1. Sly indeed. I love Michelle. I was watching that ninny Rothschild yesterday and it suddenly occurred to me. She’s spouting her nonsense in order to counter Susan Eisenhower!

  2. Using Palin’s logic on foreign policy, a talking head on TV said yesterday: “I saw the ocean on my way to the studio. Gee, I think I’m qualified to be secretary of the Navy.” Another smart aleck said, “I can see the moon from my house. I could be an astro-physicist.” Funny stuff.

  3. i think rothschild tried to buy her way into the obaba camp like she did with the clintons…she probably gave him a crotch shot for good measure… and he told her to get bent…that’s why she so pissed off…

  4. I just wonder why nobody just asks her; “So, what have you learned about Russia, from your window?”When I lived in Hartford, CT, I could see the state capitol building from my kitchen window. Guess I should have run for Gov.
