Even I feel sorry for Kelly

There are some 70 hours of digitally recorded interviews in my iTunes library. They date back to May 2011, before which I did things analog. Over the years, I've talked to more people than I can count, conducted a bevy of Q&A's and have been interviewed myself at least a dozen times.

Hence, when I say Megyn Kelly (whom I dislike for any number of reasons) would rather be enduring a Tabasco Sauce enema than conducting this interview, I know what I'm talking about. Frankly, I was unable to take my eyes from her throughout this five minutes of torture.

I was worried Kelly might throw up at about the 2:47 mark, when she realizes that her interviewee is utterly hopeless. She's probably rethinking her tenure at Fox right about then. After all, no amount of compensation is worth this level of professional humiliation.



If you missed Ms. Palin's more nuanced points, Vanity Fair has generously rounded up her "Top-Five Most Utterly Nonsensical Sentences" for your perusal. If you can figure out what she's trying to communicate, you're a better man than me. That said, if anyone among the readership speaks Palin, I invite him/her to offer up a translation in today's comment section.

Really? I understood every word and every point. Bottom line: President Obama. Bad. Tea Party. Good. Megyn isn't worried about a thing. And, what's not to like about Megyn?

Bill and Sarah = Folie a Deux

Tea Party = Collective Hysteria

Ah yes. The delusional Tea Party and all those delusional Americans who believe in the Constitution, smaller government, lower taxes and are opposed to socialism. It's just disgusting. The press should consider ridiculing them.

Point of grammar...and I am so very sorry to do this, Erin. But there are just some things that jump out...and I'm hoping no-one else sees this. You should have used "you're a better man than 'I'." Love this post and I think it's mighty kind of you to empathize with her discomfort.

The Tea Party is for the Constitution. Both amendments: 1 (as long as you agree with them), 2 (GUNS). The rest of the amendments they don't even know or care about.

Wow. It only took three comments (two of which were authored by Bill) to get him to holler SOCIALISM! And I love it when righties holler SOCIALISM!

To Lucy, I concede, but add that it's complicated.

Oh what the hell ... SOCIALISM!

@Erin-

Yeah, I noticed this 'innerview' when it first showed up too.

I don't own a farm, but if I owned a farm I would bet the farm that Ms. Maverick had a little misunderstanding about the dosage of her trancs before going on the air.

This isn't even word salad. She's graduated to word slaw or word gumbo.

Bill, to be fair, all Americans are delusional.

Harry Finch said...

What I get from the interview is that Ms Palin has a profound fear of being fundamentally transformed.

Bill said...

Wasn't hollering SOCIALISM, Erin. But, since I speak Palin, just doing some translating.

I couldn't get past the first 34 seconds.

Bill: The enemy of the enemy is my friend—is any common-sense conservative’s friend.

The blonde one will survive. But how certain are you it isn't Tina Fay mocking the unconnected clauses of Palins usual delivery.

Jim said...

Running away screaming. ...socialism! (and that's a good thing, in case you were wondering)

@ da Finch...

What she needs is somebody to transform HER fundament a couple times a week.

As far as delusional is concerned,
it's a circumstance we shouldn't take too lightly. Because a big heaping helping of right wingers in this nation ARE delusional. They believe, in no particular order, that the President is from Kenya, that the President s from Indonesia, the President is a Marxist commie, the President's maternal grandparents were card-carrying commie subversives, the President only got re-elected thanks to the efforts of the New Black Panthers, the President only got reelected because of those nefarious fiends like ACORN, that the President is coming for their guns and he just waited until his second term so as to lull the public into a false
sense of security*, that this President and his family don't deserve security when they go on vacation like every other President before him, and that if the President would only put the country back on the gold standard our economic difficulties would be a thing of the past.
