Sarah “Media Hate Me” Palin, keeps on keepin’ on. On the day her selection was announced, I received no less than three phone calls from Republican/conservative friends of mine telling me the election was “over.” I guess they didn’t realize at the time how right they were. All we heard about for a week was Sarah “Media Hate Me” Palin and before we even knew how many kids she had, we were force-fed that tried & true GOP narrative: the media is out to destroy us.
Good to know this skipping record lasts far longer than 15 minutes.
For the right wing, whose grandest entertainers get paid by saying the other side is consumed with the playing the victim, these folks sure do get tied in knots over squishy media types. It takes a serious and debilitating kind of defensiveness to consider Katie Couric the enemy at the gates. It takes a serious victim mentality to hear a question like “what papers do you read,” and respond by wetting yourself like a drunk co-ed at a national championship game.
What makes it even more cringe-worthy is waiting to say something about it later after you’ve had time to think up a response.
"Oh, yeah, and another thing....."
