Palin Urges her Followers to Confront People with Obama Stickers

Because it worked out so well the last time someone tried it, Sarah Palin is urging her followers to stop drivers with Obama bumper stickers on their vehicles and confront them (at 2:55):

“…that bumper sticker you see on the next Subaru driving by, an Obama bumper sticker. You should stop the driver and say, “So how is that hopey, changey thing working out for you?”

Hmmm…I guess personal rights only extend to the Right?  Because I guarantee if it was the other way around, there would be outrage, including threats of shooting any lib’rul that had the gall to accost them.  But I guess it’s ok to seek out, harass, and intimidate anyone who may have voted for Obama?  Hypocritical, much?  

In any event, I’m not exactly sure what she means by “stop them.”  I’m using my imagination and it’s not panning out too well for anyone.   Irresponsible, reckless, and downright creepy, one has to wonder what on earth she was thinking when she spoke…or whether she was thinking at all.   I think if she’s going to issue an edict such as this she should probably add specifically that they are not to run folks off the road to do this, because it’s not clear, and frankly, I don’t have a lot of faith in the intelligence of people who listen (voluntarily) to someone babble on and on about anything “hopey changey.”

Speaking of which, that hopey changey stuff is working out brilliantly for me – I’m glad you asked.  The Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act was signed this week.  The Obama administration has set out some huge, promising changes to NCLB.  He unveiled a comprehensive energy plan just this morning.

Yes there is still a lot to do and no, I don’t agree with everything he has done.  But I’m optimistic.  We’re getting there.  And we moving forward rather than continuing to stagnate, despite the economy and sad state of foreign affairs inherited from the prior administration, so yeah, I think it’s working out just fine.  Thanks for asking, Sarah!

    Oh, Sarah. Deep…long…sigh. What can we really say about Sarah other than her speeches continue to provide fodder for late night comedians and extra-witty bloggers? The visual of outraged Repubs running folks off the road ranting about the perils of “hopey changey’ might just be the best laugh I’ve had all day. Thanks 🙂

      I know, it’s all so ridiculous, isn’t it? Thanks for taking the time to comment, Laura.
