Obama Claims ‘I Don’t Think About Sarah Palin’

Sarah PalinOfficial_portrait_of_Barack_ObamaCome on Barack, ‘fess up, none of us want to think about Sarah Palin, but she’s become infuriatingly unavoidable. Oxford University Press even awarded her “Word of the Year” for her dumbass “refudiate” tweet, fer chrissakes. From BBC News:

President Barack Obama has said he does not think about Republican former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, a possible contender for his job in 2012.

In an interview, Mr Obama acknowledged her popularity among Republicans and said he “respected those skills”.

      Until there’s a third party candidate like Bloomberg who takes all the independents, taking votes from Obama, giving her an entrance. Could happen.

    Giving Sarah Palin’s mush mouthed verbal abortions credence with a word of the year award smells a lot like giving Obama’s “I’ll drone kill or assassinate anybody I damn well please” ass credence by giving him a Nobel Peace Prize. Where does one turn when stupidity and evil are the height of fashion?
