Attention Media: Sarah Palin Has a Great Appreciation For You

“I’ve read most of them again with a great appreciation for the press for the media, I mean…” Offered Sarah Palin.

Katie Couric, “Like what ones specifically? I’m curious that you…”

“Um, all of ‘em, any of ‘em that um have been in front of me over all these years, um…”

We’d just like to point out with all the calls of sexism by the ‘liberal media elite’, a phrase used by a dude on that fringe network CNN with a show named after him – Lou Dobbs – Palin is technically a member of the press. She has a degree in journalism. She used to be on television reporting about stuff. She’s a journalist. She can’t name a newspaper?! She can’t name a magazine she’s read?!

Sarah isn’t a victim. She’s a dink.

She’s running for a mind bogglingly powerful position. The reason she appreciates the media is because they still treat her like a viable candidate and not like a special needs student.
