The Great Turkey Massacre

Mark Steyn has the best take yet on the supposed Palin “gaffe”:

…that’s Sarah Palin’s real stroke of genius in these difficult times for the global economy. For, in an age when the government picks which banks to nationalize and which banks to fail, and guarantees mortgages that should never have been issued, and prepares to demand that those taxpayers with responsible and affordable pension plans prop up the lavish and unsustainable pension programs of Detroit, Governor Palin has given us a great teaching moment and a perfect snapshot of what my Brit reader would recognize as pre-Thatcher “industrial policy”:

When the government decides it can “pick winners” and spare them from the realities of the market, everyone else gets bled to death.

Thank you, Sarah. It’s the first election ad of Campaign ’12.

It’s a shame we can’t do something about the turkeys at MSNBC and the Huffpo.

  1. We need a turkey shoot.

    Idiots without principles should lose their jobs (McDonalds is always hiring.)

    We should identify the biggest turkeys and focus on them.

    Why is it republicans are only good at doing that to themselves? Although, eliminating reach across the aisle RINOs might be a good start.

  2. Then again, maybe a quantity over quality strategy would be better. Pick off the turkeys that are easier to get until nothing but the big turkeys are left.

    Doing nothing doesn’t seem like much of an option.

  3. I thought it was a riot, especially when you could see the “executioner” looking uncomfortable, realizing he was on camera behind her. Politically perhaps not the best move, but amusing and real in a very Palin way.

  4. I thought it was great, pure Palin. The woman sips her cup o’ joe comfortably, talking about this and that. Not only does she not squeal in city-mouse horror at the thought that turkeys are being actually killed right there — it doesn’t even occur to her that someone in her audience might come over all faint and need to be revived with smelling salts.

    May she continue to display the political “insensitivity” that keeps her something other than the narcissist robots we currently mostly have.

  5. This is classic. Obvious “people for Palin have no shame (or class). Moose chili anyone?
