Warmed my heart

Sarah Palin being mad that Sacha Baren Cohen punked her isn’t really news. Sarah Palin had her 15 minutes of fame in the spotlight, and she milked it for every penny she could. She entered politics for one reason and for one reason only: to make money. For these sorts of grifters the conservative movement is more fertile ground than any left-wing cause. All it takes is saying some bad stuff, being dragged in the media for it, and then you’re able to whine and complain about “censorship” or “media bias” and rake in the speaking fees.

But, I digress. The best part of Sarah Palin being angry is the pure hypocrisy of it. A person who’s spent her whole career opining so-called “political correctness” and her perception that society is “too sensitive” is now complaining because a joke was made at her expense. Give me a break.

 


(P.S. This is only the second time on this blog when I’ve mentioned Sarah Palin. If you had told me 2008 that she would be totally irrelevant in roughly a decade, I wouldn’t have believed it.)
