On Monday, current.com published a rather infantile “satire” piece in which Sarah Palin expressed her desire to “deport” singer Christina Aguilera for botching the National Anthem during the Super Bowl last Sunday. No one who has ever seriously paid attention to the real Sarah Palin would believe for a minute that this over-the-top lampoon was in any way authentic:
Making an appearance on Sean Hannity’s radio program on Monday, Palin
pointedly criticized Aguilera’s gaffe, and called her out for exhibiting
“Quite frankly, Sean, public figures must be held accountable for
what they say,” explained Palin. “Here’s another case of an airhead
diva going on TV, running her mouth off, sounding like a fool. She
doesn’t understand something so basic about America, yet we’re supposed
to tolerate her diva behavior? Americans can see through that, Sean.”
Palin also levied criticism on the Obama administration for allowing
“spicy Latin princesses” to do the jobs of American pop divas.
“Unemployment is at nine percent, yet we have to suffer through a
performance by a foreigner with a poor grasp of the English language?
If I were president, I’d deport Ms. Aguilera back to wherever it is
she’s from and give Amy Smart a call.” Aguilera was, in fact, born in
New York and grew up in Pennsylvania.
Apparently the folks at US Weekly, who have had a burr under their saddle about Sarah Palin since the 2008 elections, aren’t very smart. In an article that has since been scrubbed from their website, they breathlessly reported the fake interview between Sean Hannity and a “fuming” Sarah Palin as a hot news story.
Apparently Palinioa, just like Bush Derangement Syndrome, has the unintended yet gratifying ability to reduce the IQ of its victims by double-digit increments.
Keep ’em coming, folks. As a far wiser king once noted, “Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.”
