Big Mama Grizzly Knows Jack

Sarah Palin had recently released her newest political schlock video that rails against the "fundamental transformation" that is taking place in this country, but that is not what I found interesting. 

The video features a bunch of tea party stock photos and video of Palin at rallies, with Palin doing a folksy voice-over of course.  The video is designed to empower fellow "mama grizzlies," or conservative women who don't like the current adminstration, to speak up.  Palin uses her little home-grown term "because moms kinda just know when something's wrong."

Did you catch that?

"Because moms kinda just know when something's wrong."

Really?  I find that interesting because Sarah Palin had no clue that her daughter Bristol was pregnant, so why is this woman trying to claim that mama's know best when in reality, she did not?


  1. Now that's a good dang question. She also didn't know when Willow was boozing it up and vandalizing some poor neighbour's home or that her son Track was on drugs vandalizing a school bus...common sense? I think not.

  2. Excellent points, Tracy!

    Obviously her fans will ignore these logical questions because Palin has built up this cult of personality around her, and I think this "mama grizzly" label will only add to the fanaticism...

  3. Republicans love to use sophisms, simplistic notions that seem wise and sound good, but have no basis in reality, and have value only for hoodwinking the ignorant.

  4. I love that term - hoodwink!
