I must admit, Sarah Palin has confused me. She speaks with such certainty about her repeated, checkable falsehoods. Despite my headline, I can't tell if she is lying, if she is so stupid she doesn't know what is true, or if she is simply too lazy to check her facts. Probably all.

But there is one thing she keeps saying that is just starting to really make me mad, because she uses it to justify everything. And that is...milk prices.

Time and again, Palin has talked about how difficult it is for Americans, because of high milk prices.

Today  she used it  to slam FLOTUS about her effort to push for breast feeding. (never mind it is the healthiest thing for babies -- babies who need food are already born, so Repubs don't care about them anymore.)

But here is what is so outrageous -- milk prices have been in a free fall since January 2009. It is so bad that  dairy farmers are going out of business  Government agencies are  meeting  with dairy farmer to deal with the economic crisis.

Production has decreased (that's what happens when farms go out of business) and only now --  literally, now -- is there a recovery in prices.

So, maybe if Palin had a brain in her head, she could be railing against the closing of family farms because of low prices (a hard thing to tell consumers.) So instead, she just makes shit up.

Oh, and since she also talks about rising inflation (?), she should know that inflation is at historic -- and dangerous --  lows . (when asset values collapse or stay stagnant -- like home prices -- economic growth can be crippled.)

I so hate her. She is so stupid. And so dangerous.

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.

    "Breastfeeding Awareness Month" in Alaska when she was Governor.  Now she's mocking Michelle Obama for supporting breastfeeding.

    Palin forgets what she's said & done from one minute to the next.  She trips herself up every day in every way.
    Her milk joke was lame 2 years ago, it's just as lame today.

    •  Everything the Obama's do is wrong. (0+ / 0-)

      Everything. The failure of RWers to pick and choose the issues they want to contest with the administration is a sign of the sheer hatred and partisan spite that motivates them.

    there's no describing it aside from humor.

    And after all the brilliant Yo Mamma jokes over the years, there's got to be Yo Palin jokes to match.

    Lame. Brain.
