I heard the first part of that while driving to the bridge club this morning. Also Henry Ford. But that opening paragraph where they sell a dummy on the identity wasn't one of their classics.
For us in the UK she was a figure of fun, using the English language in a similar manner to Shrub (young Bush) and General Alexander Haig and with a distinctly uncertain grasp of American history and world geography.
Democratic dissent is not disloyalty, it is a positive civic duty
As per Palin helping Trump. Probably a small plus simply because of the way the left treated her and yet claimed to be the champion of women. But what the left meant to say was they are the champions of left leaning women. The left called Palin a bimbo and all manner of derogatory names. Which many folks in the political middle & all the folks on the right see as a rather glaring case of hypocrisy. Especially when the same media sweeps Mrs. Clinton's missteps under the rug in short order and claims that any questioning of her motives and policies & lack of past achievements are part of the "war on women".
Here is where the infamous "I can see Russia from my house" came from. link
Just to be clear I don't care for Trump.
Yet Golf. What have all the scholarly lawyers & experienced politicians with their oft repeated $50 words netted the USA in the last 50 years or so.
The curious thing is that for decades the richest and most powerful nation on earth has been doing its very best to convince itself that it is neither rich nor powerful. I can't see either hockey mom from hell Palin or beyond parody Trump helping with the nation's self esteem issues - their USP seeming to be that straw chewing homilies , playground oversimplifications and raging xenophobia (not a word in either's lexicon I bet ) are just what is needed to ...err..make America great again.
The most curious thing in my view is how the media forget the end of the quote about not letting Muslims into the US. Memories of "rivers of blood" quotation with taking note of the rest of the speech.
You've lost me there, Nigel. What's the unquoted bit, and how does it connect to Powell's prediction?
Watched Palin's Trump endorsement speech last night. Came across as a bit of a whacko to me, but I'm sure she's spreading a message that is going to chime with existing Trump supporters.
Having Palin on his side might help Trump's Republican credentials (unlike Trump, Palin has no history of supporting Democrat policies) and might bring in some of the evangelical vote.
I don't think there will be many people out there who were going to vote Trump until Palin appeared - but I do think there is a risk in the two buddying up. If Palin 'misspeaks' or gets into a tight corner with interviewers I'm not sure that she has the smarts to avoid / get out of such situations. If (when) she does say something dumb or off message that might take some of the attention away from Trump
Proud poster of mindless drivel on BlatChat since 2006.
Certifiable nut job supports bigoted hate preacher's attempt to become most dangerous man on the planet.
Well I'm scared, anyone else?
Ooh, do we get a signature?
