This morning on the Today Show, Matt Lauer, sans Baywatch-y onesie, interviewed squawky church lady Sarah Palin — who has a Christmas book out in which she laments the persecution of Christians in the modern era, or something — and he opened by asking her about Obamacare. After she vomited out a hearty word soup chock full of the usual conservative talking points designed to impugn the president’s troubled signature policy initiative, Lauer asked Palin what she and the Tea Party are proposing as an alternative to fix America’s flawed healthcare system. The result was a staggeringly incomprehensible diatribe, even by Palin standards.
“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. 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.”
Good luck making grits or gravy out of that.
And because her contract with Jesus, God, the Holy Spirit and WalMart mandates she do so, Palin name-dropped Ronald Reagan in the interview and endorsed the commercialization of Christmas because the commercialization of Christmas is good for the Christmas brand, apparently.
“I love the commercialization of Christmas because it spreads the Christmas cheer,” Palin gleefully told Lauer. “It’s the most jolly holiday, obviously, on our calendar, it’s wonderful.”
With all of that said, enjoy watching the lady who lives down the street from your parents who always smiles and waves at you and your family while at the same time trashing you to your neighbors behind your back on the Today Show…
