“Maybe, just maybe, Sarah Palin will at long last just shut up for 10 f*cking minutes.”
Stephen Colbert hits it out of the park with his faux-defense summation of a liberal’s laundry list of fair and balanced complaints regarding the canker sore that is Sarah Palin:
I know you think this story has no purpose other than keeping Sarah Palin’s name in the headlines for another news cycle.I know you think she has nothing to offer the national dialogue and that her speeches are just coded talking points mixed in with words picked up at random from a thesaurus. I know you think Sarah Palin is, at best, a self-promoting ignoramus, and at worst a shameless media troll who’ll abuse any platform to deliver dog-whistle encouragement to a far-right base that may include possible insurrectionists. I know you think her reality show was pathetically un-statesmanlike, and at the same time I know you think it represents the pinnacle of her potential, and that her transparent desperation to be a celebrity so completely eclipsed her interest in public service so long ago, that there would be more journalistic integrity in reporting on one of the lesser Kardashians’ ass implants. And I know, I know that when you arrive at the office each day, you say a silent prayer that maybe, just maybe Sarah Palin will at long last shut up for ten fucking minutes. I know ‘cause I can see it in your eyes!
