Oh my. Sarah Palin is proof that the Flying Spaghetti Monster loves us and wants us to drop our jaws in stunned disbelief.
Here she is being interviewed by Bill O’Reilly, who seems to be skeptical but, because of the clause in his contract that requires him to share an amygdala and at least part of his cerebellum with the rest of the FOX crowd, is doing his best to let the woman shine out. He asks her, finally, “Do you believe you are smart enough, and incisive enough, intellectual enough, to handle the most powerful job in the world?”
And I believe I can say without contradiction that she, bless her little moose-shooting heart, gives the definitive answer to that question:
I believe that I am because I have common sense, and I have, I believe, the values that are reflective of so many American values. And I believe that what Americans are seeking is not the elitism, the, um, the, ah — kind of spineless — a spinelessness that perhaps is made up for that with elite Ivy League education and — fact resume that’s based on anything but hard work and private-sector, free-enterprise principles. Americans could be seeking something like that in positive change in their leadership. I’m not saying that that has to be me.
Praise be to the FSM!
