It is not easy to reconcile with many of the things said about and done to Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin during the 2008 presidential campaign season. Especially when for the latter, the verbal assault continues on her as well as her children.
It is interesting that I never, never liked the Family Guy long before Sarah Palin came on the political scene. Friends would chide me all of the time about missing “that great show” that was “..even better than Beevis and Butthead and South Park“. Truthfully as a matter of personal taste, I am just not that into dysfunctional family animation. The Simpsons is rarely watched in my home and the same goes for South Park. While dysfunctional family animation shows are to be credited with memorable characters like Homer Simpson, “Man Bear Pig” and are canonized in popular culture, my own life was overrun by a “duh-oh” mother and an absent father. Young Afrocity could have channeled the frustrated Lisa Simpson., young gifted and black among the mom with a GED. No thanks, I don’t need see my life replayed on television in claymation, animation, or otherwise. I am sure the same goes for Sarah Palin.
The liberation of Hillary Clinton from the sharp tongued Obamabots came only after her decision to campaign for Barry. Do as we say and the liberal attacks will go away. Remember this little anti-Hillary gem from MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann?
Olbermann was one of those Hillary haters that emphasized racism on the part of the Clintons at every turn. Hillary should be taken to a room “where only he comes out”.
Now fast forward to 2010 and Olbermann has somehow inherited Hillary love from the purple gods of Kool-Aid mountain, especially when it comes to invalidating Sarah Palin.
Oh, no you don’t Keith ol’ buddy, ol’ pal. Can I say that this clip was the most contrived and homespun bullshit piece of journalism I have ever seen in my life. How dare he infer that Hillary Clinton nuanced anything about Sarah Palin being a flash in the political pan with her response to the rather ….stupid question asked of her? Furthermore, Keith Olberman failed to air Hillary’s full response to the young man. A response that was delivered with the precision grace and class that we all expect from a Secretary of State.
Shame on you Mr. Unfair and Unbalanced Keith Olbermann. You will never spin Hillary Clinton’s words into vitriol for Sarah Palin.
