Sarah Palin to Newsweek: YOU'RE Dumb!

by at . Comments

Many conservatives are furious over Newsweek's controversy-bait cover story by Andrew Sullivan, whose headline asks, "Why Are Obama's Critics So Dumb?"

Sarah Palin is taking it particularly personally, though.

"Know what's truly 'dumb'?" Palin Tweeted. "Giving a cover story to the Trig Truther conspiracy kook writer who thinks I didn't give birth to my son."

Why Are Obama's Critics So Dumb?

In a play on the "Birther" conspiracy surrounding Obama's birth certificate, Palin is calling out Sullivan for questioning whether she is Trig's real mother.

In 2008, Sullivan and others theorized that a Sarah Palin pregnancy scandal involving a cover-up of Bristol Palin getting knocked up could be in effect.

Bristol was, of course, pregnant with Tripp, not Trig.

He hypothesized that Palin "faked the pregnancy to avoid embarrassment for her daughter [Bristol Palin] or for political gain or some combination of reasons."

Sullivan's response to Palin calling him out today?

"I have no idea, as I have said time and time again, whether Sarah Palin gave birth to Trig, and have never written such a thing."

"All I ever asked for a person who could become president was some basic evidence for her insane story, like medical records that most candidates have no problem providing."

"She never provided any, and preferred to withdraw from seeking public office rather than do so. Of course, no response to the substance. She doesn't do substance. Neither, it seems, does much of the rightwing blogosphere.

Other conservative bloggers have fired back against Sullivan on political grounds. Andrew Breitbart's Big Government writes "Why Is Andrew Sullivan So Dumb?"

"You'd have to be stupid, fanatical, and dishonest to argue - as Trig Truther Sullivan does - that Barack Obama's failures are part of an ingenious 'long game' destined to succeed," he wrote. "If this is the best Obama's supporters can do, Obama's only hope for re-election is the weak Republican field."

During a Fox News segment on Sullivan's article Monday night, the network blurred out Sullivan's name when showing the Newsweek cover.

"They are far too afraid to have me on to defend it," Sullivan wrote. "I've been on the blacklist for years. Like Ron Paul, too dangerous for Fox."


Indeed, at over $10 per gallon (nearly $12 in the Highlands) in the UK, you guys have got it easy! And yes, given how much fuel ones uses per week (say) coeamrpd to how much of any other liquid product, it's not really a relevant comparison. I use about 55 litres of diesel a week (~a377) Google tells me that's about 12 gallons (~$132). No way do I use anywhere close to that much of any other liquid per week, unless you count water, which is a flat rate utility (in Scotland) anyway. Which at a rough estimate works out at about a32.50 ($4.08) a week. The only thing more expensive than commuting by car is commuting by public transport :D the same trip would cost me about a3125 that way ($204)!

I was thinking about Sarah Palin's "pallin around with terrorists" comment she used to describe President Obama. If someone eliminated me and all of my friends, I would hardly consider them a pal. Maybe Sarah is the dummy.


Trooth hurts!


Gorgeous Gov. Sarah Palin is right. Newsweek is a dumb magazine. Nobody had ever heard of Andrea Sullivan before she started the "Trig-truther" scam. Sarah walks tall, stands proud, speaks truth.

Team me

RON PAUL 2012!!!!


Sarah really should jump ship. She needs to be Liberal or Democrat! They could use more useless people.

Sarah is an imbecile! She lives in an imaginary world, in her mind she is a prominent figure and voice in politics. While in the real world she was a good laugh but only achieved prominence in the tabloids!!

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.

Sarah Palin

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.
