Palin Blasts Bloggers. Spiro Agnew Redux?

"Bored, anonymous, pathetic bloggers who lie annoy me," says Sarah Appalling. Is she channeling Spiro Agnew? Or trying to? That's some goal.

Remember Agnew's narcissistic and paranoid ravings? When this bilious Blagojevich predecessor attacked the media, as crooked and vile as he was, at least his gems were often studded with piquantly alliterative epithets, like: "nattering nabobs of negativism," "pusillanimous pussyfooters", and "hopeless, hysterical hypochondriacs of history," courtesy of White House speech crafters Pat Buchanan and William Safire.

Alas, Palin's cheeky, anemic gibberish lacks Agnew's panoply of pretentious pompous poetry. Pretty perfectly.

The interminable election finally over, now we must endure the Alaskan pretender-to-the-throne's braying and whinnying at the media and anyone else who didn't buy into her brainless, gutless nonsense. And now I see that her Norma Desmond routine has expanded to include bloggers and anyone else who has questioned her abilities, sincerity, integrity yes, even the motherhood of her baby. But this bane of McCain, this bespectacled Coultergeist, so obviously in over her head in the election, even at the shallow end, isn't saying what she means, and what she means is as obvious as a turkey being slaughtered just behind her, which she claims to be unaware of.

It isn't that "bored, anonymous, pathetic bloggers" lie, it's that they vote. And this time they voted to send her back to Alaska. Among the many things she fails to grasp is that what she thinks of the media and/or bloggers, means as little to most of us, no, less, than before most of us had ever even heard of her. Sarah, babe, history has marched on and left you behind. (At least you've got a new wardrobe.) It's over. Snap out of it!

This Agnewesque raver still cannot seem to get over the fact that she lost.

As for me, "bored, pathetic," but not anonymous blogger that I am, I still cannot get over the fact that she ran.
