Wingnut on Wingnut Violence as Sarah Palin Attacks Rick Santorum

Sarah Palin on Hannity

Evening edition of the Republican Clown Show; the Republican on Republican fun begins now.

Palin was on the 2012 Segment of Hannity tonight where she initiated a little wingnut on wingnut fun by saying of Rick Santorum, “I won’t call him a knuckle-dragging neanderthal I’ll let his wife call him that.” Ah,yes, the war of the neanderthals. Whose primitive beliefs are more knuckle-dragging, I ask you? Palin or Santorum?

From the February 9 edition of Fox News’ Hannity 2012 Segment (yes, make of that what you will):

Hannity starts things off by playing a clip of Santorum being asked why Sarah Palin turned down the CPAC keynote speech, “I don’t know, I have the feeling she has a lot of demands on her time and a lot of them have a financial benefit.” He is then asked if he would have turned it down and he says, “No, but then I don’t live in Alaska.” Santorum also then corrected a Politico story that claims he said she was skipping CPAC in order to make money off of speeches.

Hannity introduces Sarah Palin by saying that controversy always follows her and then asks her to respond. Palin says, “Evidently but OK, that’s the first I have actually heard what he had to say so, I think the reports are worse than what he actually said, some things taken out of context so I won’t call him the knuckle dragging neanderthal that perhaps other would want to call him. I’ll let his wife call him that instead.…but no I think maybe he is uninformed as to why it is that I can’t make it to another speech as I’ve explained February is our busiest month. Just because I am a mom, that doesn’t mean I don’t want to be there…….”

Hannity tries to drum up the controversy again, egging her on as if knuckle dragging neanderthal didn’t draw enough blood, reminding her that Santorum noted she “is the mother of all those kids.”

Palin responded, “I didn’t know he said that, he has seven kids. I’m a proud mother of five children. My kids don’t hold me back from attending a conference. That kind of tit for tat, Americans don’t want to hear that…….. Not the kind of pettiness that happens internally there in the Republican machine and the Democrat machine. Hearing that another part of me goes, and the beat goes on, what else is new!”

Yes, keep it clean wing nuts — no name calling and certainly no tit-for-tat! I see your misogyny, Ricky, and I raise you one rape kit. Oh, I kid the wing nuts.

Hannity asks if she’s going to announce a run for 2012 soon.

Palin responds, “I don’t have a date in mind. Um, I will make the decision as things fall into place or don’t fall into place for me and my family as we move forward with -the – the internal deliberations that we’re engaged in, in deciding whether to run for this office or not. So I’m not going to put myself in a box to give a timeline. Other people, no doubt some politicians they’re gonna be doing things in more conventional manner than I will. I’ve never done anything really conventionally. That’s what going rogue means. You get out there and you do what you think is best for the people whom you want to serve. And you’d better be willing to serve for the right reasons and a lot of that even includes the timing of announcing when it is that you would want to put yourself out there in the name of service.”

He asks about her PAC in Iowa.

“Nobody has to read anything into anything. When the time is ready to announce that will be the right time. In the meantime, I and every other candidate out there, just continuing to prayerfully consider and speak with those closest to us and advisers and decide for ourselves what the right timing….”

OK, so Palin is going to announce but it will be unconventionally. Check. Back to this wingnut on wingnut, I have to wonder if by neanderthal means she’s calling him a non-Christian? I’m not sure how it works in their belief system since she only thinks the world is 5,000 years old…so….OK, this isn’t going anywhere but crazy town.

What a conundrum! While we were never played Ricky’s comments about Palin’s “many kids” and this is Sean Hannity on Fox News, this is, on the other hand, Rick Santorum. I’d be wiling to grant the sexist card to Ricky because Santorum believes many of the same things Palin does about how women should be told what to read and not be allowed to think without getting permission first, so yeah, he very well could have made a dig about her kids. Shame on you Ricky!

But no nursery school time out would be complete without warning Sarah Palin that she doesn’t need to claw the eyes out of every single person who might have done her wrong. I mean, back when she thought he didn’t say anything bad about her, she still went to “knuckle dragging neanderthal” and then lectured us all on how Americans want solutions, not tit for tat pettiness.

It’s wingnut on wingnut, so there’s not going to be a clear winner. Palin is obviously working on saying things a President says, like “we need to focus on jobs”. Now she just needs to work on NOT saying things a President never says, like “I won’t call him a knuckle dragging neanderthal, I’ll let his wife do that.” I’m sure his wife appreciates being pitted against her husband on national TV. I can’t wait for Ricky to come back with, “I won’t call Sarah Palin an emasculating shrew, I’ll let her husband call her that.”

This is what happens when you let two neanderthals fight unsupervised but for Fox News.
