... Or both of the above. Here's the story from Todd Starnes of Fox News:
All hell is breaking loose in Egypt and all President Obama is interested in doing is riding his bicycle and playing golf, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin told me."A gay old time"? She's obviously quoting the Flintstones theme, but I think she's also questioning the president's manhood. If so, it's not the first time. Recall this from 2010:
"It's sad for America," Palin said, calling the president's handling of the crisis dithering. "Literally all hell seems to be breaking loose and President Obama is in Martha's Vineyard having a gay old time, riding his bike, partying it up."
Sarah Palin was on Fox News Sunday Recently when she was asked about Arizona and the immigration controversy. She choose to question the President's manhood. Palin said, "[Governor] Jan Brewer has the cojones that our president does not have. If our own president will not enforce our federal law, more power to Jan Brewer."It's quite conceivable that Palin spends time in the wingnut fever swamps where it's considered an established fact that the president is gay, having been romantically involved with "body man" Reggie Love and/or actor Kal Penn. This idea has been winked at on Fox News as well. So why wouldn't Palin believe it?
More from that Todd Starnes story:
Palin said it's time for the president to pull all funding from Egypt until the violence stops."It's sad for our allies"? You know what U.S. ally Sarah Palin just absolutely loves? Israel. Sarah Palin once said on Fox,
"Until there is a crackdown on this atrocious violence, they should not be receiving aid or weaponry," she said. "We are contributing to the deadly chaos that is going to lead to even more hell breaking loose."...
"It's sad for our allies and sad for anyone who believes that America can still exert some positive influence for good in this world without unnecessary intervention," she said....
"I stand strong with Israel and unapologetically I say that America should keep this strong democratic ally that we have there in the Middle East and allow for protections around Israel."A year later she wrote on Facebook:
We stand with Israel and Netanyahu's strength that he wisely uses to protect his country.She said during the 2008 campaign that the only flag in her office is an Israeli flag. During a 2011 trip to Israel, she said there are flags of Israel "on my desk, in my home, all over the place." She wore a Star of David around her neck on that Israeli trip. A year earlier, she attended a tea party convention wearing a lapel pin with two flags -- those of Israel and the United States.
Do you think she has any idea what Israel's position on the Egyptian crackdown is?
The Israelis, whose military had close ties to General Sisi from his former post as head of military intelligence, were supporting the [Egyptian military] takeover as well. Western diplomats say that General Sisi and his circle appeared to be in heavy communication with Israeli colleagues, and the diplomats believed the Israelis were also undercutting the Western message by reassuring the Egyptians not to worry about American threats to cut off aid.I'm sure Palin doesn't have a clue.
Israeli officials deny having reassured Egypt about the aid, but acknowledge having lobbied Washington to protect it.
When Senator Rand Paul, Republican of Kentucky, proposed an amendment halting military aid to Egypt, the influential American Israel Public Affairs Committee sent a letter to senators on July 31 opposing it, saying it "could increase instability in Egypt and undermine important U.S. interests and negatively impact our Israeli ally." Statements from influential lawmakers echoed the letter, and the Senate defeated the measure, 86 to 13, later that day.
UPDATE: And this coincides with...
Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol, one of Sarah Palin's earliest and most emphatic supporters in 2008, is once again promoting her cause, this time claiming during an online Q&A with ABC that Palin could "resurrect herself" ...Or resurrect something -- right, Bill?
