And she's out to prove it!
Sarah Palin wants all you media people to know that she is on to your little game. She knows ya'll are out to make a fool of her Alaskan pride and Tina Fey glasses. She's hip to the sound of ya'll chatting about how dumb she supposedly is. But you know what? She's not going to stand for it anymore! She's gonna put you all in your place, starting with The Wall Street Journal crackin' wise on her speeches!
On her Facebook page today, Sarah wrote a column directed at Wall Street reporter Sudeep Reddy. Mr. Reddy tried to throw Sarah under the bus by critizing a fact she used in a recent speech. Sarah decided to lift the bus off of herself and throw it right back at him. She writes:
Ever since 2008, people seem inordinately interested in my reading habits. Among various newspapers, magazines, and local Alaskan papers, I read the Wall Street Journal.
So, imagine my dismay when I read an article by Sudeep Reddy in today’s Wall Street Journal criticizing the fact that I mentioned inflation in my comments about QE2 in a speech this morning before a trade-association. Here’s what I said: “everyone who ever goes out shopping for groceries knows that prices have risen significantly over the past year or so. Pump priming would push them even higher.”
Mr. Reddy takes aim at this. He writes: “Grocery prices haven’t risen all that significantly, in fact.” Really? That’s odd, because just last Thursday, November 4, I read an article in Mr. Reddy’s own Wall Street Journal titled “Food Sellers Grit Teeth, Raise Prices: Packagers and Supermarkets Pressured to Pass Along Rising Costs, Even as Consumers Pinch Pennies.”
The article noted that “an inflationary tide is beginning to ripple through America's supermarkets and restaurants…Prices of staples including milk, beef, coffee, cocoa and sugar have risen sharply in recent months.”
Now I realize I’m just a former governor and current housewife from Alaska, but even humble folks like me can read the newspaper. I’m surprised a prestigious reporter for the Wall Street Journal doesn’t.
- Sarah Palin
Um, sorry, but did The Wall Street Journal just get served by Sarah Palin?
Let that sentence sink in for a moment…
P.S. - Even if she didn't read any of the articles she mentioned or really had no idea what The Wall Street Journal was until someone stopped her from using it as kindling for her fire to roast the trout she just fished out barehanded from the ice on her back porch, someone on her staff must have caught this error which makes them smart. Sarah keeps them on payroll, which makes her, dare we say, smart.
