Wonkette has a new Fartknocker report on the latest offering from her website:
With so much controversy around science these days, who’s to say what’s right and what’s wrong? Whittaker Chambers is who’s to say what’s right and what’s wrong, that’s who. Yes, it’s November 2014, and Sarah Palin is taking time to explain that Whittaker Chambers was a really cool guy who also understood so little about science that he eventually realized he understand everything about science.
How did all this come up? Because one of Palin’s subscribers asked if she’d read Chambers’ 1952 best-seller Witness as an example of how all that has happened before will happen again, only this time it’s Barack Obama who’s the godless communist infiltrator, and this time, he’s also a Muslim! DUH, Palin has read the book, it was one of Reagan’s faves, and of course her favorite part involves Jeebus.
Oh yes, apparently she not only read the book but quoted him in her own ghostwritten book.
WitnessFirst published in 1952, Witness was at once a literary effort, a philosophical treatise, and a bestseller. Whittaker Chambers had just participated in America’s trial of the century in which Chambers claimed that Alger Hiss, a full-standing member of the political establishment, was a spy for the Soviet Union. This poetic autobiography recounts the famous case, but also reveals much more. Chambers’ worldview–e.g. “man without mysticism is a monster”–went on to help make political conservatism a national force.
This book has 808 pages, so of course one has to believe that the old hooah read it. You’d think she would have remembered that when perky Katie asked her that gotcha question if it had such an influence on her life and helped shape her world view?
Sarah then goes on to answer even more serious questions about whether she and Todd own any cool cars. She does that little girl shit again. Does she ever listen to herself?
Ah she remembers going to the car auction. I do too. She couldn’t walk or stand without Todd’s help.
And apparently, they all own trucks, not cool cars. Now isn’t that interesting? Yawn…
