I'm usually not a political blogger, but this story caught my attention.
Yes, Palin thought it was necessary to strike back at a little snipping comment that Barbara Bush made about her. Barbara kind of hopes Palin would stay in Alaska. So, Palin decided to mildly attack the former First Lady. Instead of letting it go and ignoring it, Palin goes after an 85 year old woman. That sounds honorable.
I've always liked Barbara because she's been outspoken about issues and usually makes slightly unpolitical statements. It would be interesting to find out why Barbara doesn't like Palin.
So, what was Palin's comeback to Barbara's insult?
From Politics Daily, (("I don't think the majority of Americans want to put up with the blue-bloods," Palin -- who is considering a run for president in 2012 – said. "With all due respect, because I love the Bushes, the blue-bloods who want to pick and choose their winners instead of allowing competition." ))
Palin is trying to form a wedge between the old school Republicans and the new school Tea Party guys. I just don't think she should represent that group. Truth be told, Barbara Bush or George Bush haven't been relevant since they left office. Why waste time even bothering to forming a counterattack? It almost seems as petty as that time she marked out a McCain hat and then made sure people knew about it.
I just hope someone else wins the nomination. I'd love to see some of these more seasoned Republicans rip her apart.
End of Line...
Side note, make sure to check out these amazing parody pictures from Zina Saunders' web site for more great pictures. I really love the way she draws Palin. She's has some wonderful drawing skills.
Yes, Zina actually made Palin Bazooka from GI Joe. She made Palin look just like the character from toy package drawing.
