That was a pretty clear attack by the fabulist know-nothing from Wasilla. Rahm Emanuel had opined that Joe Barton’s view that the $20 billion pried out of BP by the Obama administration was a “shakedown” was common among Republicans. Emanuel noted, moreover, that Barton was speaking from prepared remarks, and reflected the GOP’s “larger philosophy,” adding “they see the aggrieved party here is BP, not the fisherman. And remember, this is not just one person.” Palin responded immediately with this marvel of eloquence:
“BP’s reported willingness to go along with the White House’s new fund suggests that the Obama Administration is hard at work exerting its brand of Chicago-style shakedown politics. These actions are emblematic of a politicization of our economy that has been borne out of this Administration’s drive for greater power and control. It is the same mentality that believes an economic crisis or an environmental disaster is the best opportunity to pursue a failed liberal agenda. The American people know much better.”
The RSC has 115 House members in it, or rather 65 percent of House Republicans.
Will Palin retract her lie?
Does the Pope crap on the tortured souls of hundreds of raped deaf children?
