Train Wreck: Watch Sarah Palin Embarrassingly Try to Explain Her Alternative to “Obamacare”

palin-idiotI know, I know — many of you hate when I write about Sarah Palin.  I argue that her being one of the first people that comes to mind when you think of Republicans (more specifically tea party Republicans) is a great thing for liberals.  Who better to make the entire Republican party look like complete idiots than Sarah Palin?

Well, in a bizarre interview you really need to see to believe, Matt Lauer asked Sarah Palin what her alternative to “Obamacare” would be.  Her answer is pure gold.  It took me back to 2008 when Katie Couric asked her which specific newspapers she read and Palin rambled on for quite a while, unable to name a single newspaper.

Palin said:

“The plan is to allow those things that had been proposed over many years to reform a health-care system in America that certainly does need more help so that there’s more competition, there’s less tort reform threat, there’s less trajectory of the cost increases, and those plans have been proposed over and over again.”

Yes, that was really her answer when asked about what alternative her and her fellow Republicans might have to “Obamacare.”

This is a woman who tries to present herself as some kind of an “expert” about the Affordable Care Act, and even in her embarrassing attempt to describe an alternative, she seems unable to cite a single specific part of the healthcare law that she would change.

Oh, but after she babbled on about what her “alternative” would be, she had an answer for what’s preventing those “plans”:

And what thwarts those plans?  It’s the far left.  It’s President Obama and his supporters who will not allow the Republicans to usher in free market, patient-centered, doctor-patient relationship links to reform health care.”

Interesting.  Isn’t what we had before exactly what she just described?  A health care system that allowed for discrimination against people with pre-existing conditions, continued rake hikes and a system that wasn’t “patient-centered” but industry-centered.  As in, a system built to benefit the profit margins of the health insurance companies and their affiliates.

And didn’t Republicans have a president in the White House for 8 years, and have control of part (if not all) of Congress for most of that time?  If they actually had a plan to fix our very flawed health care system, why didn’t they follow through with it then?

Oh, I’m sure they’ll blame that on Democrats too, right?  It’s amazing how powerful Republicans make Democrats and President Obama out to be.  When Democrats have power, they’re the cause for everything that’s wrong.  When they don’t have power, they’re the cause preventing Republicans from doing anything.

The GOP continues to prove themselves to be the party with no ideas but plenty of excuses.

Here’s the full interview with Palin from the Today Show:

    Good God! The Palin word-salad gets more and more incomprehensible.

    • axollot

      I suspect xanax or liquor. She comes off like a not sober 08 Palin.

      • regressive rightwing trash

        sexually she might be terrific on Xanax,,,,but NOT drunk!!

    • Elizabeth

      Great comment, reminds me of the time my Mother had a stroke and was speaking in word salad, nothing made sense…soun
      ds like Sarah

    • HF

      It’s like a Scrabble board exploded in her head. She can barely speak English in any kind of understandable capacity. How do you even interview someone like this?

      • Colin K Cote

        ROFLMFAO ! ! ! ! !

      • Colin K Cote

        “It’s like a Scrabble board exploded in her head” PERFECT !

      • ICBM904

        That’s funny.

  • Guest

    Does she even know what “tort reform” means?? I mean REALLY means? She just parrots buzz words that she thinks will get her the most cheers from rednecks.

    • Dave’s A Mainer

      She thinks tort reform is making a cake with artificial sweetner probably.

      • Andrew Scott

        Actually that’s probably tart reform you’re describing (or is that pop tart reform?).

      • Ang

        Tart reform is if she switches parties.

      • It’s the new Pop Tart Party!

      • bigdog

        He means torte…a kind of cake

      • Burke Pray

        She is the bona fide tea bag tart.

      • Angela Walker

        Ha. Thanks, Dave, Nice one.

      • ICBM904

        But she apparently wants less threat of tort reform — “there’s less tort reform threat” — which is the opposite of what conservatives want.

    • Aith

      She’s got a new word now “Trajectory”.

      • WishfulThinking

        She learned trajectory when she was shooting wolves from a helicopter

      • jdunaway65

        Probably pronounces it “cha – jek – tree,” though… I don’t know because I will NOT watch these videos — the sound of her voice makes my hairs stand on end…

    • Skip Patterson

      Not to mention, she says not having Tort Reform, or the taking away of Americans rights to sue big corporation when they have been hurt by them, is something the Republicans have been supporting for over 2 decades now. Come on Sarah, your getting your talking points mixed up now.

      • Buckthesystem

        She misread the teleprompter, LOL idiot cannot even read the crap that was given to her.

  • Steve Wascher

    I believe you, no need to click play on that video. It would give me nightmares.

    • Skip Patterson

      I know it’s tough. Hearing that woman’s voice is like hearing nails on chalkboard, only worse.

  • Fred Shira

    I can see how you like to write about Sarah Palin. What great material she puts in front of you. You should write her a Thank-you note.

    • Chomper Lomper Tawee

      She’s the repulsive gift that just keeps on giving.

  • guest

    Sorry … could only watch part of it … couldn’t seem to follow the rambling !!! She does made you laugh !!!!

    • Socialmedic

      She makes me cringe.

      • Chomper Lomper Tawee

        She makes me want to gouge my eye out and stab my ears.

  • Colin Daniel

    I am just waiting for the next revision of the Oxford dictionary. We just need to add some pictures to key words and most people would get the definition quickly. The only problem is her picture would be used to define to many words, none of which would be similar to smart or intelligent.

  • A Olson

    She is so embarrassing! Thank goodness she lost and will never get that close again!

    • DAV

      Don’t bet on it, she is still the teabagger darling and they are loud, stupid and voting. Unless intelligent people and Democrats mobilize fully for the upcoming elections, she could be back in the race, and even in the big chair.

  • kissyface

    dumb ass

  • Jess Manuel

    I need Obamacare now more than ever when my head started spinning after watching Sarah Palin try to explain stuff.

  • BackSeatJesus

    I wanna snap that pointing finger right off her hand.

  • Jorge Mabarak

    They’re talking about Obamacare and you’re calling HER a train wreck? Wow you people are so desperate for distraction. How pathetic.

    • KEnzor

      Baaaaaah, baaaaah

      • Jorge Mabarak

        That’s precisely to response I would expect from someone who defends a proven disaster. That followed buy a “gulp gulp gulp” of the kool-aid.

      • Joseph P.

        Please. Share the “proof”….

      • regressive rightwing trash

        hey whore gay,,,,,,,,,, are U willing to bet YOUR 1000.oo against MY 50,000.oo that in 2 yrs the ACA will be incredibly successful?? NO??? I didn’t think so— hoargai is crying again: change his diapers please

      • Pat

        You must be a Palin plant what with your homophobic slurs.

      • regressive rightwing trash

        hey brainiac————– “whore gay” is the PHOENETIC way of saying JORGE: and JOIRGE is the rightwing creep I am admonishing in MY rant above ridiculing HIM,,,, I hate the regressive rightwing trash_ but I would luv to F*CK sarah palin as she is sexy and an idiot ( great combo for a one-nighter) so pleeeeez read MY rant and then wonder why ur message to me was / is so STOOOOPOD

      • Bine646

        why dont you address your spanish gfs brother or friends named jorge like that? Probably bc she would stop paying for you to live huh? we know your line cook job isnt paying the bills. What did you say her facebook acct was under- veronica velsquez- shouldnt be hard to find her on there and show her your little rants. Sure she would be proudddddd

      • regressive rightwing trash

        she abhors the latino contingent here in S fla– and when they TRY to chat “en espanol” with her anywhere she reminds them that she is ( A) American,,,,(B) born here– (C) is attracted to gringoes such as meeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
        line cook? well: I will not tell U what I have AVERAGED gross ( my business is 100% cash-ola) over the past decade but I can gleefully edify U with this: I make more ( damn silly cash ) than 95% of ALL chefs in this country. (NOTE: poor line cook me works 4 days 35 hours a week- my “slaves ” do the bulk of the hours) ……. shall we discuss my stocks and potions for 2013? portfolio up 43% YTD– mainly thanks to BIDU and PCLN: owning and selling calls against them- just slightly out-of-the-money monthly ( thats how I get around taxes; I pay the capital gains and the CASH-ola goes in my line cook pockets) but I suspect strongly U couldn’t know a butterfly from an iron condor. Ronnie laughs at what I write to small feeble cretins such as thee on these silly threads. “CONTINUE GONV’NA”

      • Bine646

        whats the name of the business that you own- lets google it. lets get the rating.

        funny you let her call you a gringo- you call her a spic?

    • Kathleen Allen

      Sarah Palin has been a train wreck for at least 5 years now. Obamacare hasn’t even started yet. You’re pathetic.

      • Jorge Mabarak

        Right. Omamacare hasn’t even started and it’s already a complete disaster. Palin is a private citizen and holds no public office. She’s just a talking head. Who’s pathetic? Oh right, I am..

      • sueme

        A website not working isn’t a complete disaster. Learn the definition of both words.

      • regressive rightwing trash

        hor-gay is crying,,,,as he fervently watches FOX “news” for his dialogue, can someone PLEEEEEZ change hor-gais diapers???

  • richard

    Her outside is starting to look a lot like her inside.

    • grwow

      Like Momma always told me, “Pretty is as pretty does.” Nothing pretty here.

  • Jake

    God, she is such a moron. “I love the commercialization of Christmas.” Are you serious??? Please explain how having Christmas themed ads shoved down our throats “spreads cheer.” Christmas is a celebration of the birth of Jesus, and it is about family. It isn’t about a new f-ing X-Box One, a Mercedes, or Black Friday.

    • Anthonij

      Yeah, as (predictably) moronic as her comments on the ACA were, what really struck me in this little interview was her comment about loving the commercialisation of Christmas… lol… Just one more example of the hypocisy of Christian Bagger-Repubicans, who aren’t nearly so much Christian as they are money-grubbers… She loves the commercialisation because HER corporate friends insist that they be able to denature Christmas as a commercial event for their own corporate profits… Nothing has done more damage to the ‘spririt of Christmas’ than that…

  • rachel

    Who is Sarah Palin really? Nobody who matters. Can we stop reporting on her? She is out there to serve her self interests. To stay relevant. Ignore her and hopefully she will go back under the rock she came from. Lets stop validating this idiot with coverage.

    • G. Michael Murphy

      We need Palin’s rambling to remind people just how whacked out she is.

  • Kim Koskosky-Everett

    The sad truth is, the ACA is basically all GOP ideas, which have been presented over the years. If it were a far left plan, it would be Medicare for all and eliminate the for profit insurance industry in providing healthcare. They would not be allowed profits over people and all Americans would have access to healthcare.

    • Marietta

      Single payer, Medicaid-for-All, is what we are moving to in Vermont in 2017. We are all about caring for one another up here. The trick with healthcare is to avoid it by living a healthy, happy, creative life, and not mind sharing the costs with those who do need it.

    • Sounds good to me.

    • David Lloyd-Jones

      Kim,

      Spot on. Obamneycare is a welfare program for insurance companies. It happens to have a wee bit of health care stuck on the side.

      -dlj.

    • Kimberly Mowery Sepulveda

      You “hit the nail on the head”, Kim!! The ACA is a carbon copy of the health plan adopted by Romney in Massachuetts in 2006. That’s why it is so absurd that Repubs are so vehemently against it!!?? Single-payer is the way to do and, personally, I can’t wait for that day to come!

      • Jerry Callender

        The Republiscums are not necessarily against ACA – they’re just against anything President Obama is for, and petrified it will be a success.

    • Johnst

      Yes, and GW could have passed ACA exactly as written but called it the “Patriot Healthcare Act” and Fox and the rest would be praising GW as the man that saved healthcare and America.

      • I’ve said pretty much the same thing many times. I’ve said if Obama were a white Republican they all would be on their hands and knees praising him and kissing his feet.

  • Feb thirteen

    she’s on her bipolar high, watch out for her lows

  • Gregory Joseph Lawless

    Matt Lauer is way too soft to interview anyone in politics. He should stick to the Kardashians and Hiltons of the world.

    • bron

      …and SP is different from the Kardashians & Hiltons how?

      • regressive rightwing trash

        kardashians have nice breasts

      • Gregory Joseph Lawless

        They’re not out there trying to change the world…just the fashion part of it. 😀

  • Mark Elsbernd

    Is that woman sober?

    • Storm

      Looks buzzed to me

  • Ann Hale

    Goodness! She’s an idiot! Can’t we just give her a pair of binoculars and tell her to keep an eye on the Russians from her porch and call when, and only when, she sees an invading force landing on the beach? Her fifteen minutes of fame should have been up long ago.

  • nmexmatt

    does anyone else find her voice comparable to fingernails on a chalkboard? My biggest complaint is Mr. Lauer refers to her as “Governor”…she quit…she doesn’t deserve that title!

    • Dee Klien

      Hearing her makes me want to jam pencils in my ears .

    • jdunaway65

      I agree on both counts, especially calling her “governor.” Now, we DO call presidents, governors, mayors, etc. by their title even after their terms are over, but they COMPLETED their terms!

      “it may be tempting and more comfortable to just keep your head down, plod along, and appease those who demand: ‘Sit down and shut up,’ but that’s the worthless, easy path; that’s a quitter’s way out,” she said while saying she was going to quit…

  • It’s not about WORDS or MEANING. It’s about FEELINGS. Palin spews words that mean one thing: “I feel good about opposing Obamacare”.
    It’s kinda like cheering at a baseball game; we don’t think the pitcher is a belly itcher, we are just expressing contempt. That’s all she’s doing so it’s a mistake to even care what her words are saying; her fans don’t care.

  • Mister_Mean

    What an IDIOT! She is babbling. Perhaps she is on drugs. Need to give her a drug test. No one (I guess I am wrong) can be that stupid.

  • jeff zimmerman

    my head hurts after hearing her “the free market needs to be allowed to change”, ARE YOU KIDDING ME? THAT IS THE PROBLEM WITH HEALTH CARE..THEY KNOW A MONEY MAKER WHEN THEY SEE IT..THEY WONT CHANGE …she is an ultra moron..and remember..SHE QUIT AS GOVERNOR OF ALASKA..you want to believe a QUITTER?

  • dancerellen

    She IS CRAZY!! Bottom line… CRAZY

  • Jeri Martin

    I am a little mad that she keeps using one of my favorite catchphrases, “right on!”, ugh! And.. I didn’t even know she knew how to read, let alone the ability to write a book. Inspiration here- if she can get published then, by gosh, so can I.

    • Socialmedic

      She doesn’t write her books. She just slaps her name on the credits and collects the royalties.

  • mngrayfox

    Five minutes and 57 seconds of ignorant jibberish! She still portrays the symptoms of a person whose cranium is hollow and only contains two weak neurons that are connected by a spirochete! Why anyone still insists giving her air time to spew her ignorant babble is still going on is simply beyond belief!

    • Shyster

      Well, she is on the TODAY show. lol.

  • Adam Regan

    Couldn’t watch more than 40 seconds of her spouting complete drivel without any recourse to sources or facts.

  • Grand_Old_Partier

    She should have said, “Progressives and liberals are a luxury the nation can no longer afford. Let’s put things in perspective: March 21st 2010 to October 1 2013 is 3 years, 6 months, 10 days. December 7, 1941 to May 8, 1945 is 3 years, 5 months, 1 day. What this means is that in the time we were attacked at Pearl Harbor to the day Germany surrendered is not enough time for this progressive federal government to build a working webpage.”

  • Jorge Mabarak

    Common sense is a foreign language to you people. Can you comment / argue on anything specific from the interview? Or are you just going to make ad hominem insults?

    • J. R.

      Jorge, I put the same question to you. Did she offer an alternative plan? gulp gulp gulp indeed. Me thinks someone has imbibed in the Alaskan kool-aid himself

      • Socialmedic

        Right seems that privatization thing just isn’t working for American health care.

    • regressive rightwing trash

      specific? OK,,,,hows about THIS: can JORGE name any any any regressive white trash rightwing republican alternative(s) to the ACA>????? NO?????????????????? Hmmmmm,,,,,,,,,must be a FOX “news” watcher

  • J. R.

    I watched the gosh darn interview before I read the gosh darn article and I swear (I just dropped two quarters in the gosh darn….make that 3 quarters…in the cursing jar) I had to read the transcript before I could understand what the h e double hockey sticks (another quarter) she said.

  • Alex Vogel

    …I am 27% LESS intelligent after watching that gem from her. WOW. Who writes her material – Bill Maeher ?

  • Chris LeDoux

    You know who wanted socialized healthcare Sarah. Jesus Christ would have wanted socialized a lot of things. She has never read her Babble I mean Bible.

  • zobva

    Good grief, what a waste of the air that she breathes that woman is.

  • Artos

    while no offense to anyone who is mentally crippled (sense they are quite decent people) i feel like i must say shes gone full retard on that, and most people with actual reduced or damage cognitive functions often make more sense then her

  • Aith

    “So, half-term Governor Palin, what’s your plan for healthcare?”
    “I like Turtles”
    “Huh?”

    • regressive rightwing trash

      turtle candy!!! I knew I wanted to sex her,,,,shes bringing me turtles AND cold YOO HOOs!!!

  • sSOLOo

    im soooooooooooooooo lost

  • elita

    What’s wrong with her face??

    • regressive rightwing trash

      nuthin’ .she a sexy idiot who I wanna “drill baby drill” as soon as she brings me ice cold YOO HOOs and she gulps down her xanax

  • Dave

    If you took 400 alphabetic characters and dumped them in a container, shook them up, then set them on a table one at a time, you could not be more random than she is when she speaks. The fear we should have is not her, however. The fear we should have is that the number of people who continue to follow her lockstep like the Pied Piper of Hamlin, except she is Judas Iscariot about to turn Jesus to the Jews for crucifixion for attention. Except that Sarah Palin will not go away.

  • Armand

    Leave it to good ol’ Sarah for some comic relief! I hope she is around for a long, long time. These days, America needs to laugh

  • Sarah Palin is an over-ripe former beauty queen turned “B’ rated actress playing the role of a lifetime. Palin cannot produce an original thought on her own. No matter what questions or topics are introduced in an interview she has to rely on the prewritten script that she gets paid to deliver.

  • justbarry60

    Socialized medicine? My Ass. When you pay for it isn’t socialized. It Should be socialized. Take all of the pork out of the military budget, we could afford it. Free medical care for all. Oh no I am a socialaist.

  • Mainah

    WHY is she still speaking? just … why? I had to reread that paragraph on the republican replacement of the ACA over and over and over again and all I got from it was a headache.

  • Horace

    Come one Matt Lauer…why can’t media ask follow up questions like “isn’t the ACA actually breaking down state barriers and allowing for competition among the health care companies, and doesn’t that drive down costs?” OR, “well, without the ACA, how would we deal with increasing health care costs?” OR, “did you know that the ACA is actually a largely conservative plan authored by the Heritage Foundation and used by REpublican Gov Romney, the liberal progressive plan would be something like single-payer Medicare for all.” When Jay Leno is better at interviewing politicians than our great media, we have come to a bad place.

  • Steve

    First reaction when I stumbled upon this interview…my blood began to boil. Then laughter. What a sad, irrelevant joke this person is. Shame on Matt and Company for even having her on screen!

  • regressive rightwing trash

    I still wanna sex her—- imagine how dynamic she is in bed,,,, with all her insanity channeled towards MEEEEEEE! ( as long as she brings several ice-cold YOO HOOs for meeeee)

  • Skyhollower

    The media needs to do the responsible thing here and just stop having her on their shows and stop writing about her. Maybe she will just go away, she really was never relevant and even less relevant now.

  • Skyhollower

    After listening watching this…WOW…it is getting harder and harder to distinguish between her actual speaking and her flatulence.

  • Bill Adair

    She is a window licking idiot. That is all

  • Arguin-AssBarbershopNigga

    Its
    like when ur drunk… u SWEAR everything coming out of ya mouth makes
    TOTAL sense, but everyone around u only hears gibberish.

  • Keith G. Cooper

    Please no more of this dumb ass bitch…she is a freak of nature!

  • Doug Cochran

    That was Sarah Palin? She’s got that Tina Fey thing down! Matt Lauer’s performance was spot-on as the straight man. I’d be like Harvey Korman with Tim Conway.

  • Skip Patterson

    That women really is starting to sound like the “Church Lady” from early SNL

    Palin running for Senate? Well that’s not going to happen as it would involve 3 years of Sarah not being able to engage in full time golddigging. Not going to happen.

  • Skip Patterson

    “Who better to make the entire Republican party look like complete idiots than Sarah Palin?”

    I can’t disagree with you there.

  • Jaclyn

    dumb as a box of rocks,is the description of anyone who thinks this poor excuse for a human, has anything going on in her head

  • Skip Patterson

    “The plan is to allow those things that had been proposed over many years to reform a health-care system in America that certainly does need more help so that there’s more competition, there’s less tort reform threat, there’s less trajectory of the cost increases, and those plans have been proposed over and over again.”

    Well you can’t expect her to really say what the Republican Health Care plan is, which was pointedly articulated by Alan Greyson, “Don’t get sick and if you do get sick, die quickly. Or to put it another way, the Republicans want to implement a culling process that eliminates all those who do not contribute to GDP, that’s the Republican Health Care Plan. So she had to fill up air time with something so she turned on the word salad machine.

  • Bugs

    When it comes to Palin, what we really need is TART reform.

  • drc

    The lady couldn’t pour piss out of a boot if the instructions were written on the heel.

  • Scott Davis

    A free market approach to health care is just what Alan Grayson said, if you are sick, die quickly. Insurance companies only want the healthy. The sick drain their profits.

  • petesomebody

    She has the brain of a flea.

  • Suzanne Longo

    My head is ready to explode. We get Sarah Palin hates Obama. But I have no clue what she’s talking about. She’s like a pinball machine, makes a lot of noise while the ball bounces from one pole to another without racking up any points.

  • Otowner

    Matt Lauer is such a transparent toadie for Teapublicans. No follow up questions, no responses of any kind. He’s an embarrassment to the institution of journalism.

  • republicanindetox

    She speaks gobble de gook! The more she speaks gobble, the more intelligent her supporters think she is! She’s the scarecrow with no brain – Cruz the tin man with no heart and McConnell the lion with no courage. Behind the emerald curtain are the Koch brothers pulling the strings! It’s the wizard of odd!

  • VALERIE MARTIN

    Can’t you just picture her fans?
    (the “real Americans”)
    On the edge of their seats…..
    Giggling, nodding, clapping wildly, &
    chanting…..
    Sarah! Sarah! Sarah!
    ;D

  • Johnst

    I wish Obama would have a press conference and tell Congress that he has changed his mind and wants ACA repealed as soon as possible.

    Would just be funny seeing Republicans scrambling to stop all attempts to repeal it….

  • theabby

    “Less tort reform threat”?? Tort reform reduces tort litigation or damages. It is the effort to “reform” lawsuits to prevent “runaway verdicts” that range into the millions of dollars. And she sees this as a threat?

  • Dee Dee

    The only sacrifice Palin could make that would benefit me would be to STFU!!!

  • regressive rightwing trash

  • Champ86

    I wish the media would treat her like they do Obama.

  • lawoman32

    Good Lord, this woman is awful and the sheer depth of her ignorance is immeasurable. She’s positively incoherent and I noticed that even Chris Wallace laughed at one of her recent rants on Faux News.

  • Post Punk Red

    Sarah Palin is an idiot. Michele Bachmann is worst; Bachmann is evil…

  • Denise

    I can’t finish listening, she makes no sense and is a pure waste of time. I will never click on another video with her in it running off her mouth. Tell me why she is being interviewed? She says nothing intelligent, and has never ever been relevant at all. She’s nothing but a loser. Don’t they have anything better to report on?

  • Buckthesystem

    Did everyone miss the teleprompter she was reading from? The camera stops right on it. I wonder who is writing her schtick for her because she could never string all those words together on her own.

  • Robin Tomlin

    God, I love that woman!

  • Jo Clark

    This is what I’ve always thought about her word salad and the reason for it. She’s someone who doesn’t have an answer, doesn’t have any facts,nothing concrete to say, but she knows she’d look stupid if she says that, so she just tosses in words, any words. If you’ve ever read or listened to one of her longer rants, you’ll see a TON of nothing-words, fluff, filler, extraneous verbiage. In a nutshell, she tries to BS her way through the answer and is completely clueless how dumb she sounds when doing so.

    The MOST accurate detailing of GOP plan to date. You betcha.

  • Dot

    Did she ever apologize for quitting, so she could go make millions, instead of serving the people of Alaska.

  • Phil B.

    Soooo, no actual plan then?

  • Scott Trezak

    I’m pretty sure this is proof that Glen Rice “F”-ed her brains out in the 80’s

  • James D. Covington

    She complains/criticizes everything that President Obama does, but yet she never, ever proposes any alternatives, not even remotely meaningful.

    Sarah Palin is an expert at deploying weapons-grade stupidity. She proves it each and every time she opens her mouth.

    ” I love the commercialization of Christmas”
    True corporate sponsor. Nothing to do with Christ. In bed with the money!

    This often happens to functional illiterates.

  • Phil Ryan

    This woman is a babbling moron. And the guy interviewing her lauer wasn’t exactly probing in his interview. Both are overpaid hacks.

  • Skip Patterson

    Yeah and those previous plans put out in the 90’s by the conservative Heritage Foundation was what the President tried to implement with the ACA. Not to mention that is what Mitt did in MA. Sarah is nothing more than a babbling moron pandering to the lowest denominator in America.

    One of those plans Paloon mentioned “that had been proposed over many years to reform a health-care system in America that certainly does need more help so that there’s more competition” was the 1993 John Chaffee (R-RI) healthcare (insurance) reform plan, cosponsored by 20 Republican senators. The Chaffee bill included the Republican idea of the individual mandate (The same mandate that cosponsor Orrin Hatch later decided was unconstitutional).

    It was their free-market, capitalist attempt to reform healthcare and leave the insurance companies intact. It was their only plan. Then the Democrats passed it, and it became socialized medicine and big government intrusion.

    Oh, … and death panels. Don’t forget the death panels.

    Palin mixes in just the right amount of subject appropriate words so that her rather intelligence limited followers think she is knowledgeable, the poor souls.
