This sexist whopper out of good-old-boy Mississippi Governor (and McCain pal) Haley Barbour’s mouth is breathtaking:
“My wife loves her because…she doesn’t have a chip on her shoulder like some women politicians, she is very ‘normal’ — she doesn’t have to tell you how smart she is. But she is a bonafide energy expert…Sarah Palin knows more about energy policy than the other three put together.”
Palin wouldn’t have much work to do in foreign policy as Vice President, Barbour added, but just like Mississippi is more “sensitive” to hurricanes, for example, than Kansas, Alaska might be more “sensitive,” he went on, to our “Cold War opponent” Russia by being closer to its border.
Uh, no, she doesn’t have to tell us how smart she is, governor. She’s made it crystal clear every time she opens her piehole. Is it me or is the IQ level of these GOP talking heads dropping moment by moment in honor of Bible Spice?
Energy expert? Let’s go back to that video I posted the other night, Gov. Barbour…
“Oil and coal…it’s a fungible commodity and they don’t flag the molecules where it’s going and where it’s not. In the sense of the Congress today they know that there are very, very hungry domestic markets that need that oil first. So that I believe that what Congress is going to do also is not to allow the export bans to such a degree that it’s Americans who get stuck holding the bag without the energy source that is produced here, pumped here…it’s got to flow into the domestic markets first. ”
