Sarah Palin, not looking backwards?
After all the fuss about not allowing the media to record her speech in Hong Kong, Sarah Palin goes and posts a big chunk of it on Facebook!
Apparently, the Main Street part of her speech was the controversial bit, where she bashed President Obama, blaming him for the implosion of the economy, where she reiterated her death panels B.S., all very appropriate for an American citizen making a speech on foreign soil.
Sarah Palin also took the opportunity to challenge the human rights record of the host country. Ever the diplomat, our Sarah!
It wasn't all negative, though. Sarah praised Ronald Reagan (again) and Margaret Thatcher, who's not quite as dead as Reagan yet, but fairly ga-ga and out of it. Didn't Sarah Palin say to Joe Biden: "There you again, looking backwards again" during the wink-wink debate back in November?
The speech was simply more of the same old, same old, no big surprises. For those of us who expected some dramatic changes, it was a disappointment. No major cosmetic surgery and definitely no elocution classes!
I suppose it was during the Q&A bit at the end that she said she needed a wife. I agree. Sarah Palin could have done with a wife to iron that jacket! The botox may have ironed out the wrinkles on her face, but the jacket needed more traditional treatment...
