Sarah Palin Defends Dr. Laura Schlessinger, Does Not Understand U.S. Constitution

by at . Comments

Sarah Palin is really unintelligent for a major political figure.

We're not saying that because she's female, conservative, outspoken, etc. It's just true, as her grasp of the U.S. Constitution, or lack thereof, proves in spades.

The former Alaska Governor and current professional celebrity went on Twitter yesterday to give embattled radio host Dr. Laura Schlessinger some support.

Palin's first Tweet: "Dr.Laura:don't retreat...reload! (Steps aside bc her 1st Amend.rights ceased 2exist thx 2activists trying 2silence"isn't American,not fair")"

Her second: "Dr.Laura=even more powerful & effective w/out the shackles, so watch out Constitutional obstructionists. And b thankful 4 her voice,America!"

Putting aside the fact that a person who wrote "2silence"isn't American,not fair" was nominated for Vice President of the United States, this is still nonsense.


To recap, Schlessinger repeatedly used the n-word in speaking with a caller that asked for advice on her marriage. This woman then complained about the epithet.

Dr. Laura naturally replied, on air, that "If you're that hypersensitive about color and don't have a sense of humor, don't marry out of your race." Crickets.

Her contract is set to expire at the end of this year, and with the backdrop of this controversy, Schlessinger decided not to continue her show when it does.

She wasn't actually fired, though it would have been justified.

You see, Schlessinger's First Amendment rights did not "cease 2exist" because she was criticized for berating an African-American or using the n-word 11 times.

The First Amendment, Sarah Palin, protects people from government infringing on our speech rights; it doesn't take away other Americans' right to criticize.

Nor does it stop a private business from terminating an employee or pulling ads as it so chooses. That's capitalism and freedom at work, baby! U-S-A! U-S-A!

That Homer, Alaska resident said it best: Worst. Governor. Ever.

The thing with invarianced relationships
Insistances your left out in the open
Unprotected still liable for everything you
Have disclosures unknowingly
Reserve agendas exposed unmanageable
Your set aside as if your opponents never
Counted it never did on one page
You are always held liable for nothing
You also lose your point of view when you
Forget what you was searching for
Friendship becomes secondary in the
Real world protections every thing

Horse face Palin made more sense when she played basketball and looked like a dude.

Sarah knew exactly what she was saying and she was right. Find something else to whine about. Your ignorance of the law is no reason to give her a hard time about her intelligence.

Chic, charming, charismatic Constitutional scholar Gov. Sarah Palin defended Dr.Laura on legal, moral, and feminist principles. Sarah Palin is our populist princess, and she is out there fighting for YOU.

IndyMom - You hit the nail on the head! Couldn't have said it better including the Hitler comparison. I have made that comparison to anyone who listens. It is the uneducated lemmings who follow Sarah Palin. The non-thinkers. And after the incident with the teacher - it's clear Bristol is just like mom.

Sonny Says that someone suffers from "jealousy and envy," (uhm, Sonny, they're the same thing). I get the biggest kick out of the Palin apologists who think anyone who criticizes her is jealous of her. I can only conclude that these people are reflecting their own feelings, not those of her critics. No intelligent person would be "jealous" of Sarah Palin. She is one of the most pathetic figures in American Politics. She was completely exposed in a book about the campaign she was part of as an undereducated, money-grubbing opportunist. She does not value education, so don't expect her to understand the Constitution. Her children don't even go to college. The scary thing about her is that she is very much like Adolph Hitler (uneducated and a bit unbalanced) and uses the exact same tactics as she does, appealing to the uneducated by stirring up negative emotions.

WOW!!!!! This is what we are at war for. It makes me sick to see people make such rude comments. I'm an officer in the military and yes I'm Black. In the battlefield a bullet don't give a crap if you are white, black red or green. I have lost my husband and my brother to this war and I still wake up and serve my country every day, so people can be kids and call each other names. Trade places with me any day and see what we say to each other after a bomb has blown up and your white, black, red or green friend has been blown to pieces.

All I can say is this....When you are on top, not functioning in desperate mode it's easy to be judgmental of anything. But when you are on the bottom, you realize how important it is to only love.
Dr. Laura and Sarah Palin aren't in desperate mode so they are going to be judgmental and voice things that are not appropriate about human beings and human behavior. Both of them have the ability to do wrong, fail, make horrible choices, be jailed, murder etc...It's only the grace of their
circumstances that have saved them from this. None of us are any better than the other. It's our circumstances that define the difference. Your luck in life....

Right on, Mark W. Right!
Dr. Laura mentioned every race: Jews, Hispanics, Blacks..By the way, she is a Jew, and I am sure she heard enought throughout her life how "different" Jews are....Hey, what about W. Goldberg saying "kiss my black ass" right there, on National TV., on "The View"? Can you imagine, Barbara Walters saying: "kiss my WHITE ass"?
Well, if I misspelled some words here, pardon me...English is not my native tongue...

Sarah Palin Quotes

What I've had to do, though, is in the middle of the night, put down the Blackberries and pick up the breast pump. Do a couple of things different and still get it all done.

I am thankful to be married to a man who loves being a dad as much as I love being a mom so he is my strength. And practically speaking, we have a great network of help with lots of grandparents and aunties and uncles all around us. We have a lot of help.
