The twit tweets:
Great day w/bear management wildlife biologists; much to see in wild territory incl amazing creatures w/mama bears' gutteral raw instinct to protect & provide for her young; She sees danger? She brazenly rises up on strong hind legs, growls Don't Touch My Cubs & the species survives & mama bear doesn't look 2 anyone else 2 hand her anything; biologists say she works harder than males, is provider/protector for the future.
First misused word:
1. Common misspelling of guttural.
1. Of or relating to the throat.
2. Having a harsh grating quality, as certain sounds produced in the back of the mouth.
Gutteral raw instinct???
Guttural is an adjective used to qualify sounds, I can't see how it applies to instincts. It comes from the Latin word "guttur", meaning throat.
$arah Palin probably thought it had something to do with one of the slang meanings of guts?
a. The alimentary canal or a portion thereof, especially the intestine or stomach.
b. The embryonic digestive tube, consisting of the foregut, the midgut, and the hindgut.
2. guts The bowels; entrails; viscera.
a. Innermost emotional or visceral response: She felt in her gut that he was guilty.
b. guts The essential components or inner working parts: "The best part of a good car . . . is its guts" (Leigh Allison Wilson).
4. guts Slang
a. Courage; fortitude.
b. Nerve; audacity.
From Middle English guttes, entrails, from Old English guttas.
1. shameless or impudent: brazen presumption.
2. made of brass.
3. like brass, as in sound, color, or strength.
$arah Palin's use of the English language in her tweets is always very interesting...
When is she going to tweet about the Medicaid/Medicare crisis affecting so many vulnerable Alaskans?
Oh, but she did, over a month ago:
"Here’s a link re: older AKns & Medicare http://tinyurl.com/ljott2, & a great read by former LG of NY http://tinyurl.com/c44ah5"

"True reform should benefit, not neglect, older Americans, the very bedrock of society! In AK, 80,000 AKns age 60+, to be affected by reform."

From the ADN:
State programs intended to help disabled and elderly Alaskans with daily life -- taking a bath, eating dinner, getting to the bathroom -- are so poorly managed, the state cannot assure the health and well-being of the people they are supposed to serve, a new federal review found.
A particularly alarming finding concerns deaths of adults in the programs. In one 2 1/2 year stretch, 227 adults already getting services died while waiting for a nurse to reassess their needs. Another 27 died waiting for their initial assessment, to see if they qualified for help.
$arah Palin has been the governor of Alaska for the past 31 months. It appears she has brazenly ignored the disabled and the elderly in the Alaska she loves so much. Where were her "gutteral" raw instincts to protect her constituents? How has she provided for/protected anybody's future? 254 vulnerable Alaskans no longer have a future. This happened in her watch.
Come on, $arah, tweet us the answer!
