Note To Washington ComPost: If Sarah Palin So Is Stupid, Why Does She Occupy So Much Space In Your Heads?

Newsbusters has a piece on Richard Cohen, resident male chauvinist liberal of the Washington ComPost, talking about how stupid he thinks Sarah Palin is.
FAREED ZAKARIA, HOST: Richard Cohen, do you have answers?

RICHARD COHEN, WASHINGTON POST: I have nothing but answers. I don't think for a second that Sarah Palin knew the meaning of blood libel. I just don't. There's nothing in her background which suggests it. And if she did, I don't think she used it all that inappropriately. I mean, if it refers to a false accusation for which a community is blamed then she was right.

BERNARD-HENRI LEVY, FRENCH PHILOSOPHER/INTELLECTUAL: Hold on. You think Sarah Palin is stupid enough not to know what a blood libel is?

COHEN: How much time do we have left to talk about how stupid Sarah Palin is?

Answer this Dick, if Sarah Palin is so stupid, why does she occupy so much rent free space in not only your head, but the heads of every other liberal elitist, and some alleged "conservatives" (David Frum, David Brooks, Kathleen Parker) as well? I mean, you libs have nearly the same psychotic obsession about Sarah Palin as Jared Loughner had about Gabrielle Giffords.

Simple answer: You're all afraid of her.

Great post. I definitely share your concerns. I really hate to see us fighting among each other over this - this only serves the Wall Street interests who have taken over our country.

Instead of fighting over Palin - who in my view would have major difficulty getting mainstream Republican support, we could be trying to find common ground in doing something really worthwhile:

1. Ending the war in Afghanistan and Iraq and closing 900+ military bases around the world
2. Abolishing the Federal Reserve (and getting rid of the banking/Wall Street crisis in the process).

How do we do this? By getting behind Ron Paul for the Republican nomination (and making sure no nutter shoots him in the mean time). I believe there are enough Republicans left who remember when the grassroots ran the Republican Party at the precinct level - before corporations took it over. Anyone remember Phyllis Schafly (A Choice Not an Echo)?

I know many of my progressive and liberal friends would want to shoot me for saying this - but fortunately they don't believe in 2nd amendment remedies.

In case people don't recall, Ron Paul was the first Republican to correctly label Obama as a "corporatist," rather than a socialist. See

You are absolutely correct. The "Stupid" meme is one the Left has used for generations now. Reagan was just a stupid, doddering old man. Quayle was too stupid to spell "potato", Bush was just stupid....and evil...and really stupid....but an evil genius. TEA Party Activists and other conservatives are stupid. Sarah Palin? Beyond stupid. This is how they demean leadership from the Right. They fear true leaders and must destroy them. They were successful with Quayle, Bush and others. Not so much with Reagan, Palin and the TEA Party folks. But only because we own the talk radio and blog concession. This is why they want FCC control of the internet and a return of the (un)Fairness Doctrine.

Yes, it's exactly like so many lefties had two years ago,about Bush/Cheney/Rove!
They must have a target- yes that's what I called it- someplace to aim their hatred. It gives them something to live for, besides their precious unions, global warming and entitlement programs.
