Oh Sarah Palin. I have been out of the loop enough to miss her and her crazy “I am a victim, the media is horrible” rants. Yes, it has been that long. Her latest crazy rant was about David Gregory, the mundane and most uncontroversial host of NBC’s “Meet the Press.” Speaking on Wednesday’s edition of “Hannity”, on Fox News (where else?), Palin said that Gregory asked a “racist-tinged question” when speaking with GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich.
Last week, Newt suggested that the presidential election in 2012 may be the most important election since the before the civil war. Speaking to the Georgia Republican Party’s convention, Gingrich said the nation is at a crossroads and that the re-election of Democratic President Barack Obama would lead to four more years of “radical left-wing values” that would drive the nation to ruin. Gingrich also criticized Obama as “the most successful food stamp president in modern American history.”
During “Meet the Press,” Gregory pressed Gingrich on his remarks. “First of all, you gave a speech in Georgia with language a lot of people think could be coded racially-tinged language, calling the president, the first black president, a food stamp president,” Gregory said to Gingrich during the show. Gingrich tried to deflect the question but Gregory kept pushing. Gingrich then became defensive.
“That’s, that’s bizarre. That — this kind of automatic reference to racism, this is the president of the United States. The president of the United States has to be held accountable. Now, the idea that — and what I said is factually true. Forty-seven million Americans are on food stamps. One out of every six Americans is on food stamps. And to hide behind the charge of racism? I have — I have never said anything about President Obama which is racist,” Gingrich told Gregory. Except for the whole Kenyan anti-colonial nonsense, right?
And then the victim weighs in with her two cents. “Well, talk about racism, that was a racist-tinged question from David Gregory,” said Palin of the exchange. “He made it sound like if you’re black you’re on food stamps and the president is referring to you as being on food stamps. I think that’s racist. And, you know, enough is enough of this calling out, this racism, these false charges.” Enough is enough Palin. Take your own advice and quit calling out your own false charges of sexism and problems with the “lamestream media.”
