They think she is some ditzy hick who just likes to go huntin' and stuff, so that's what they show. Of course on the other hand, I think this is wonderful photo of Sarah Palin, and it endears me to her all the more, as I'm sure it does many voters in "Flyover Country."
The funny thing is watching the left-wing media try to wrap their minds around a woman like Sarah Palin. For a really good laugh, read what this L.A. Times blogger had to say about Palin and her "rifle."
Suffice it to say, she ended her piece with this flash of brilliance:
Hey, is that even the right way to hold a rifle? Can't you shoot your foot off like that?First of all, genius, that isn't a rifle; it's a shotgun. Second of all, that is a very common way of carrying an unloaded shotgun, so that way you CAN'T shoot off your foot. It is called carrying it in the broken position. A gigantic number of commentors wrote in and told this blogger what an idiot she was. So not to fear! The same blogger wrote a follow-up post in which she castigated the commentors for calling her on her ignorance, trying to pass it all off as a big joke she was trying to make. That didn't fly, and many of the same commentors wrote back in. This was my favorite comment to this clueless blogger:
Oh, I see... You MEANT to look like an idiot. ...and the gun-clingers are hot-headed morons for pointing out the obvious. Ok.It's the leftist elitism like that of Newsweek and the L.A. Times that makes me so irritated about the prospects of Obama winning in the first place.
How do you even have a job?
Good Day to You, Sir
