Sarah Palin: “Sort of like a Vice President, Only With Responsibilities”

September 5th, 2008 | by Tom Harper |

Our country’s dedicated Community Organizers got dissed the other night by some phony self-absorbed ice queen. These are the people who work hand in hand with churches to help inner city residents who’ve been evicted, laid off or had their homes foreclosed. “Community Organizer” teeheeheeheehee…

And unlike certain petty spiteful politicians, community organizers don’t have any political clout that they can use for banning books and firing people.

But not to take it personally. The above-mentioned asshole also has a low opinion of another well-known job title: Vice President of the United States. Or, she used to anyway.

Before Sarah Palin was chosen as VP, she answered an interviewer’s question with:

“As for that VP talk all the time, I’ll tell you, I still can’t answer that question until somebody answers for me what is it exactly that the VP does every day? I’m used to being very productive and working real hard in an administration. We want to make sure that that VP slot would be a fruitful type of position, especially for Alaskans and for the things that we’re trying to accomplish up here for the rest of the U.S., before I can even start addressing that question.”

And she toks rill goood too.

Or to paraphrase Bluto Blutarsky: “Six years of college down the drain.”

    No one was downplaying what a community organize does if you actually listened to what she said. She was comparing the experience of an executive position to a community organizer.
    You may want to look at why she wanted her brother in law fired. But you can find that one out for yourself. It’s just fun to watch you guys keep bringing it up.
    I wouldn’t care if Obama was a 2 term Governor in Illinois all I need to know is Reverend Wright,Pflager and William Ayers.

    It sure sounded to me like Sarah and shoulder-hunching handwringing Rudy were taking every potshot they could at the term “community organizer.” Both of their speeches were some of the most obnoxious slippery collections of cheap shots I’ve ever heard.

    I don’t know much about Troopergate, but it’s the fact that she tried to use her political influence to get him fired that grates on the public. If somebody deserves to be fired that’s one thing, but it shouldn’t be influenced by the fact that this person has pissed off an influential VIP.

    It was obvious that the potshots were at 1 community organizer, the one that the Dems have been saying is qualified to be president in part because he once was one. The same Dems that say that she is not qualified because she was once a mayor of a small town. This was not aimed at community organizers in general. This has been Dem talking points since the night of Palin’s speech and it is not resonating.

    Oh well, on to the next tactic.

    Nice try manapp.

    Every time I heard Palin and Giuliani use the term “community organizer” their voices and phrasing were oozing with contempt and condescension.

    Part of it is probably because those people look down on any job that doesn’t involve somebody in a 3-piece suit making jillions of dollars by playing with other people’s money.

    And part of it is because the term “community organizer” probably sounds synonymous with “social worker” or “do-gooder” — the kind of job that wouldn’t be necessary if everybody would just pull themselves up by their bootstraps and quit begging for handouts.

    In any case, every time the ice queen or the shoulder-hunching handwringer said “community organizer,” the drones out in the audience went wild. The whole thing had the tone of some poor geek getting teased at recess. Only these people were adults (chronologically anyway).

    “Every time I heard Palin and Giuliani use the term “community organizer” their voices and phrasing were oozing with contempt and condescension.”

    You are right about that. The were in contempt that the Dems were counting this as part of the reason that Obama considers himself qualified to be President. Remember they were responding to days of attacks on HER credentials so they fired back about Obamas.

    “Part of it is probably because those people look down on any job that doesn’t involve somebody in a 3-piece suit making jillions of dollars by playing with other people’s money.”

    No, but part of it was the Dems looking down on those in small towns and small states. I’ll bet you will not find a very wide selection of Arugula on the shelves of your grocery store in Washilla.

    “In any case, every time the ice queen or the shoulder-hunching handwringer said “community organizer,” the drones out in the audience went wild.”

    Of couse they went wild. They got it. They knew exactly to whom the comments were aimed. I suspect that you really do as well you just hope the the American people are too dumb to understand who the barbs were aimed at.

    We shall see who’s spin prevails.

    Should have been Wasilla, not Washilla.

    Could have been any small town in America though. The ones that Dems have shown such contempt for.
