He might have had something to say about this shit.
So, while watching the beginning of the debate last night, I heard Palinsay this:
You know, I think a good barometer here, as we try to figure out
has this been a good time or a bad time in America’s economy, is go to
a kid’s soccer game on Saturday, and turn to any parent there on the
sideline and ask them, “How are you feeling about the economy?”
And I’ll bet you, you’re going to hear some fear in that parent’s
voice, fear regarding the few investments that some of us have in the
stock market. Did we just take a major hit with those investments?
Fear about, how are we going to afford to send our kids to college? A
fear, as small-business owners, perhaps, how we’re going to borrow any
money to increase inventory or hire more people.
And I really wanted Joe Biden to reach back and get his FDR on. “Well, Gwen, the Governor seems to have forgotten what the greatest president of the 20th century taught us: The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” And then go on about how America is a nation of strong people, not bedwetting cowards, and we will handle whatever comes our way, and how, like in the dark days of the Depression, the Democratic Party had the vision and wisdom to turn things around, and it will do so again. Then Sarah Palin would have burst into flames.
I mean, wouldn’t it be great to use a dead man in a wheelchair to beat your opponent into the ground?
Christ, she brought up Reagan a few times, and what the fuck did he do right? Nothin’. Don’t be afraid to use FDR, Democrats. People loved him, and many still do. Old folks love Social Security. Remind ’em who put it there, and who’s been trying to take it away for seventy years.
You can do it. Fight. You have righteousness and history on your side. Now tear into these cheap fucking hucksters. Expose them for the low-rent three card monte hustlers they are. Fight, goddammit. Get in there and bury them.
