Sarah Palin: Today’s Braindead Megaphone

leave a comment »

Sarah Palin tweets and people follow. That’s because she’s a braindead megaphone who people are forced to (or worse, willingly) listen to. So when she makes up words like “refudiate” to promote her bigoted views on a proposed Islamic mosque near the the World Trade Center site, she is especially scary because her views actually influence people.

First, Palin tried audacity by combining compassion with braindead bigotry:

Ground Zero Mosque supporters: doesn’t it stab you in the heart, as it does ours throughout the heartland? Peaceful Muslims, pls refudiate

Almost realizing the error of her ways, Palin took out “refudiate” which doesn’t exists in English, and changed her tweet to:

Peaceful New Yorkers, pls refute the Ground Zero mosque plan if you believe catastrophic pain caused @ Twin Towers site is too raw, too real.

Still not realizing that the true error was promoting bigotry, but apparently getting some grammer advice, Palin then changed this tweet to:

Peace-seeking Muslims pls understand. Ground Zero mosque is UNNECESSARY provocation; it stabs hearts. Pls reject it in interest of healing

Now Palin is adding to the bravado by comparing herself to Shakespeare. Telling her nearly 200,000 twitter followers:

“Refudiate,” “misunderestimate,” “wee-wee’d up.” English is a living language. Shakespeare liked to coin new words too. Got to celebrate it!

What’s truly disturbing is 200,000 people listen to this braindead megaphone tweet every day.
