Also, too, wrestling a bear and putting a tracking collar on a tranquilized bear accompanied by a large group of scientists are two different things.
demonstrates the dangers
of only talking to people who share your world view:
"People are looking at Putin as one who wrestles bears and drills for oil," Palin said to Fox News’s Sean Hannity on Monday night. "They look at our president as one who wears mom jeans and equivocates and bloviates."
"People" are looking at Putin and Obama this way? Like, a majority of them? Or the ones in Palin's own Facebook feed? Because in my Facebook feed, things look a little different—but, apparently unlike Palin, I'm aware that the views of people connected with me personally are not necessarily representative of all the people everywhere.
Also, as little as I want to play into dated Cold War views, since when do muscle-flexing Republican nationalists like Palin drool over the Russian president's macho media stunts? Since when do they think the world takes said media stunts seriously as evidence of badassery rather than regarding them as largely staged photo ops? I mean, really, next is she going to tell us that because Putin's been photographed topless, people see him as the next Playboy playmate?
Here's hoping the producers of Saturday Night Live have Tina Fey on the phone right now, begging her to appear this weekend. Because Sarah Palin just wrote their script for them, no revisions or edits needed.
