Rick Santorum: “Palin is like Tinkerbell”

    Simile trumps metaphor as the former Pennsylvania Senator immediately regretted the out of context possibilities and reached to minimize the potential by adding, “…she sprinkles fairy dust on candidates and they win!” Santorum was guest hosting on Bill Bennett’s “Morning in America” radio program Friday morning.

    Sharron Angle and Nikki Haley provide his proof. Santorum’s own favored candidate in South Carolina, U. S. Representative Gresham Barrett, fell far behind after an early primary lead but managed to force a run-off with the beleaguered favorite of the tea party set. Santorum gave deference to the Palin “magic” and predicted she will be a force in a GOP resurgence this year and through 2012.

      If only she were more like Tinkerbell (silent).  Instead, we get her high-pitched (finger-nail on chalkboard) whine incongruously giving voice to a smirking, winking ill-informed half-governor.  But I must say I blame the media.  For whatever reason, the media have made her more of a “celebrity” than she should be.  She couldn’t even make it through her first term.  Why would anyone suppose she can govern.  But there was Chris Matthews telling her how to plan a presidential run.  What do you say of Matthews?  To hear him gush yesterday, you would swear he has a vicarious crush on her….

      I need to find the video.  It was enough to make one gag.

      Come to think of it, if only Tweety (Matthews) were silent also…
