Sarah Palin appears to have drunk-posted an attempted takedown of former Gov. Martin O'Malley (D-MD) on Facebook the other day, following O'Malley's announcement that he's challenging Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination.
I've long believed that there are two individuals who manage Palin's social media presence: an assistant and Palin herself. The assistant's ghost-posts are insane, but they're generally well-written and not-at-all rambling or incoherent. On the other hand, it's always abundantly obvious when Palin decides to fire off a missive herself because it's loaded with ludicrous word usages, questionable grammar and lots of word salad. Put another way: her self-authored posts read as if they were written by a deeply intoxicated tween, and this new O'Malley post on her official Facebook page is one of her finest efforts.
It's a mess right out of the gate. Here's sentence number two:
As cool as [O'Malley] is with his rock 'n roll persona, this typical liberal's erroneous grasp of our Bill of Rights merely continues the strange and disastrous agenda of Barack Obama.
The second part of that sentence just barely makes sense. I could see how "this typical liberal's" policies might continue Obama's agenda, but it's a little awkward to suggest that an "erroneous grasp of our Bill of Rights" continues Obama's agenda. But I get it. It's a Wasilla Mad Libs, and she scribbled "Bill of Rights" in the blank calling for "sacrosanct patriotic thing."
By sentence number three, Palin leaned on the irony switch.
Good to know he doesn't have much chance of winning.
Nice to hear this from a politician who quit halfway through her first term as governor, then who refuses to run for president herself, and whose party's frontrunners are losing to Hillary Clinton in their home states. But O'Malley's the loser. Gotcha.
And now, some authentic frontier gibberish:
The democrats have greased the skids for their chosen one, despite the media games that play the public with various "competing" campaigns used for gamey distractions.
First, see how mature and statesman-like she is?... CONTINUE READING
