Sarah Palin Chimes in on Chris Christie Bridge Scandal, Laughably Says Obama is Worse

palin_christieWell you knew this had to be coming.  Whenever there’s a big story or some kind of scandal, Sarah Palin is sure to give her two cents about what she thinks and prove her stupidity for the umpteenth time.

Not that what she says is particularly important (in fact, it isn’t important at all) but her ridiculousness is always fun to expose, and as much as we might all loathe the woman — she’s still a politically relevant figure who has some influence within the Republican party.

So when this “bridge scandal” broke concerning New Jersey’s Chris Christie, I’m sure we were all on pins and needles in anticipation of what she thought of it.

Okay, well not really.

Well, Sarah Palin decided to sit down with “political heavyweight” Inside Edition where she called the bridge scandal “a pretty atrocious act, to snarl traffic,” also saying, “what an inconvenience, what a dangerous situation.”

Oh, but she says it’s “nothing compared to what some leaders in our White House have engaged in and covered up.”  Citing the ongoing NSA surveillance issues and, of course — Benghazi.  

Because no Republican attack on the Obama administration would be complete without a continuation of a made up Republican scandal that’s been debunked so many times I’ve lost track.  And let’s also not forget the power given to the NSA was granted by the Patriot Act, a bill originally passed by Republicans and which continues to be supported by many Republicans in Congress.

So the NSA “scandal” is not just Obama’s.  It rests on the shoulders of both parties.

Shockingly though, she showed some common sense by saying, “Even if Chris Christie were a Democrat, people would still be very, very outraged to find out that bureaucrats were involved in messing up people’s schedules and lives via power plays.”

Her comments clearly showing that she, like many Americans, don’t believe for a second that Christie knew nothing about this.

Then again, conservatives like Sarah Palin loathe Christie.  They don’t want him anywhere near the GOP presidential nomination in 2016.  So her essentially “throwing him under the bus” by agreeing that this scandal is fairly bad really shouldn’t be all that surprising.

While it’s still a long way from 2016, I have a strong feeling this bridge scandal will be Christie’s undoing.  As more and more small details continue to be made public, I think it’s only a matter of time before some sort of evidence emerges that directly links Christie to being involved in this scandal.
