Sarah Palin meets Kathleen the Teacher

Billy Sullivan caught much of the interchange on his cell phone camera. The back of her security guard's head and Todd Palin attempted to block Billy's view, continually rotating like Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum. What were they afraid of? I guess that's what happens when you're filming a "celebrity". He was even told by one of the Palin daughters, "You're an A-hole". Charming family values.

Here is a previous diary by AnnetteK with a full transcript....

Now, I know a lot of you are sick and tired of hearing about the Palin trainwreck, so I gave fair warning.

Honestly, I'm sick and tired of her and her tabloid family also, too, but this is very worth reading about IMHO, plus it's hilarious.

It would appear that, as we thought, Sarah hasn't got a flipping clue about the American Constitution.

As a Brit, I'm almost clueless myself about it, but then again I didn't run for high office in the US.

I am almost certain that Palin and her merry band have just trampled a couple of amendments into the ground. Maybe you could confirm this for me in the comments, if I get any.

Follow me over the fold for the latest 'Palin Saga/Eff up'...........

What I found interesting about this video is Sarah's reaction to Kathleen being a teacher.

Palin: What do you do here?

Kathleen: I’m a teacher

Palin: Oh. (Eye roll and protracted grimace)

Palin Daughter: Oh.

Conservatives hate teachers.  They say no, they just hate the teachers' unions.  No, I say, they hate teachers.

They say that they hate public education because it wastes tax dollars and does not work.  They are wrong on both counts.

For House conservatives to continue to oppose funds that would save teacher jobs, after the issue of deficit spending is taken off the table, reveals the actual reason behind the opposition -- conservatives want teachers to get fired.

Maybe they think small class sizes aren't worth the money. Maybe they think there are so many bad teachers that a couple hundred thousand are expendable.

I don't know why exactly conservatives want so many teachers to get fired. But there's no getting around the fact that they do.

Perhaps then, we should be having and open and honest debate, whether we want hundreds of thousands of teachers to get fired.

If conservatives really think that's the right policy, I'm sure they would be happy defending their position.

They do not use the same arguments against funding police officers and firefighters which are just as important to our society and cost just as much.


Because teachers enlighten with rationality and reality and like Stephen Colbert once said, "Reality has a well-known liberal bias."

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
