    Exactly what Palin-haters didn’t need WaPo’s Suzi Parker to do

    Exactly what Palin-haters didn’t need WaPo’s Suzi Parker to do

    Sarah Palin has taken to twitter to further confuse and confound what she has termed the “idiot media,” no doubt including Washington Post journalist Suzi Parker who erroneously reported that the former Governor would be joining Al Jazeera.

    The Washington Post’s Suzi Parker had failed to realize that a piece published on the Daily Current, which describes itself as “The global satirical newspaper of record,” was satire.

    Sarah Palin responded:

    Sarah Palin 2

    Sarah Palin 1

    Parker had been attempting to paint Palin as fame-crazed, using the (false) news of her gig at Al Jazeera as proof.  Twitchy preserved Parker’s now-redacted text:

    The Sarah Palin Story is a cautionary tale about what can happen when politics and celebrity meet.

    Late last week Al Jazeera America announced the former vice-presidential candidate would be joining their news network.

    “As you all know, I’m not a big fan of newspapers, journalists, news anchors and the liberal media in general,” Palin told the Web site The Daily Currant. “But I met with the folks at Al-Jazeera and they told me they reach millions of devoutly religious people who don’t watch CBS or CNN. That tells me they don’t have a liberal bias.”

    The original article from Parker now includes this disclaimer at the top:

    CORRECTION:  An earlier version of this post and the post’s URL incorrectly reported that Sarah Palin had signed on as a contributor to the Al Jazeera America news network. The blogger cited a report on the Daily Currant Web site as the basis for that information without realizing that the piece was satirical. 

    To which Michelle Malkin responded:

    Sarah Palin is so dumb…. what’s with that “idiotmedia” hashtag? Doesn’t she realize how redundant it is? Not to mention repetitive.

    Sarah Palin is not as great as her supporters claim nor as bad as her detractors allege. If the haters really were thinking clearly they would ignore her in hopes that her cache would disappear and she would fade.

    However they can’t. And that’s because she is not assessed as a human being. Instead she has achieved the status of a symbol, both for those who love her and those who hate her. She either reflects what the loony left believes is the worst of America, or what her fans see as the best of America.

    Hence an attack on her is perceived, rightly, as an attack on those who share her beliefs.

    I know this may sound ridiculous, but I hope she realizes that, despite the venom from the vile, it really isn’t about who she is personally, but what she stands for.

    Nobody gets an 80% approval rating like she had in Alaska prior to being picked as McCain’s VP running mate by being stupid, crazy, etc, etc. Those accusations came about because she ridiculed Obama during his elevation to godhood. And the left-wing Jihad was born.
