We (hopefully) won't have Sarah Palin to kick around much longer, so this bit of spontaneous WTF was too ripe to pass up.
Typically, the whole CNN "I Reporter" shtick can be a little pathetic. You know the drill: Some schmuck with a video camera videotapes either a news-related event or, even more pathetic, him- or herself spouting off ridiculously uninformed "everyman" opinions about the pertinent issues of the day.
But hand it to I Reporter Brad Bailey, who caught VP candidate Palin at a campaign event, perhaps after a quick hit of crack in the Straight Talk Express potty. Bailey, who is black, asks Palin how to get minorities more involved in the political process. Palin responds, "We've got to be all about the equality. Our constitution preaches...Todd is Alaskan and if you go up to Alaska, we have a problem with him being a minority up there. We live it."
We live it. Well, if you want to get technical, Todd is one-eighth Yu'pik Eskimo and one quarter Curyung. Still, to suggest that Todd—who looks like the bastard child of Tim McGraw and David Hasselhoff—understands the indignities and discrimination suffered by minorities in America, seems like a stretch. Then again, so does everything about Palin's VP candidacy. Tick, tick, tick...
