“What does Sarah Palin think?” is a question I think about as often as “Should I drop a hammer on my toe?” But for FOX News’ Greta Van Susteren, this is an inquiry she’s contractually obligated to consider more seriously. Wednesday night, the two struggled to offer engaging and credible critiques of the State Department’s handling of Benghazi before moving to an area seemingly more appropriate for the ex-Alaskan governor: headline snatchers.
Van Susteren questioned Palin on Time magazine naming President Barack Obama as their “Person of the Year.” Not surprisingly, the former vice presidential candidate was less than impressed. Palin then spoke to the publication’s irrelevancy in a moving display of tragic irony and being critically self-unaware.
Palin told Greta Van Susteren:
“I think there’s some irrelevancy there, to tell you the truth. I mean consider their list of the most-influential people in the country and the world, some who have made that list — yours truly! That ought to tell you something right there regarding the credence that we should give Time magazine and their list of people.”
Well, to be fair, Palin is right to point out how increasingly uninteresting and not-so-influential she is the more she opens her mouth to spew out a bunch of empty nonsense.
Other comments Palin offered in that same interview include her accusation that President Obama “sees the constitution as a charter of negatives,” plus quipping that other than “drive us over a fiscal cliff,” Palin asked of Obama, “what the heck has he done?”
There’s a few lists around to answer such a question, but that would assume Sarah Palin has the intellectual curiosity to do something as simple as logging on to Google and letting the magic happen.
