Sarah Palin: I Read!

| Filed under: Sarah Palin


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.

Just saying!

    even though perez, you don't have the right to pass judgment and presume things just because she is republican. you've been bullying her and other stars too long now.

  2. esj says – reply to this


    she made a valid point and should be commended.

    sorry, sarah's still a simpleton. She said prices had risen significantly over the last year or so. The article indicated that packaging costs were beginning to rise and that those prices would be passed on to the consumer. And if anyone doesn't understand the difference… then they need to hop onto the short bus with the moron.

  4. 4

    Re: esj – There is a difference between bullying and simple logic. Anyone who has heard Palin speak knows that she is not the sharpest tool in the shed. Simply looking at this woman's history of less than intelligent comments leads to the only logical assumption that one of her staff not only found this item for her, but spelled out what she should say.

  5. 5

    You can bank on the fact that someone on the Palin 'team' found that little gem for her because Sarah cannot and does not read. She is a dumb bitch, plain and simple! Just what America needs, another dumb-ass.

  6. 6

    She's not as smart as you're giving her credit for. Why don't you read the rest of the story, including more of Reddy's rebuttal, from a reputable news source? The WSJ did NOT just get served. Commodities prices have been rising but stores have not been passing on the cost to consumers for the most part. Prices are rising "sharply", but relatively they aren't by that much. Check the statistics.

    it took sarah palin TWO YEARS to think up a witty response to the question of what she reads. big deal she reads the journal. do you think she understands CMOs or arbitrage and how they continue to affect the economy even after the meltdown that occurred UNDER GEORGE BUSH. he's just not capable of deep, concentrated thoughts. why can't dems just spit out the truth and continue, loudly, to BLAME GEORGE BUSH's policies for screwing up the country and just bury the right wing.

  8. 8

    Like her or not, she has more intelligence in her pinky than you could ever hope to have.

    Just because her political views are different than yours doesn't mean she's retarded.

  9. 9

    You're a little behind…..she misquoted the Wall Street Journal article.

  10. 10

    hmmm a fair point! perhaps she's not as dull as we thing

    You should've researched this story further Perez. Apparently Mrs. Palin only read the headline and not the entire article. The articles 1st sentence points out "the tamest year of food pricing in nearly two decades."
    She's still dumb as a door knob!!!!!

  13. 13

    Im with Palin on this one. Even my local rag recently wrote about how groceries had increased in the past two years. I've noticed it, too. As for Reddy, he needs to report the news, not make it.

  14. 14

    Sarah Palin or her staff either don't have good reading comprehension skills or intentionally misqouted that WSJ article. If you happen to read and fully understand it..simply put, its all about how businesses have a hard time passing the price increase burden to consumers and how businesses are trying to cope with the situation without increasing the prices by cost cutting on other aspects.

    "An inflationary tide is beginning to ripple through America's supermarkets and restaurants, threatening to end the tamest year of food pricing in nearly two decades."

  15. 15

    Learn to spell….it's y'all! The apostrophe takes the place of the letter or letters you take out which is the o and u!

  16. 16

    "An inflationary tide is beginning to ripple through America's supermarkets and restaurants, threatening to end the tamest year of food pricing in nearly two decades."

    If you do not read often, you will not develope your reading comprehension skills Sarah, the article is about how businesses have a hard time passing price increase to consumers :D

  17. 17

    Perez, please do some fact checking before you post something that makes you look stupid. She misquoted and misunderstood the WSJ article, the WSJ did not get served you did.

  18. 18

    i love how this bitch makes millions and pretends to care about the prices of food.

    Re: jeanmichelbasketcase – It took Americans TWO YEARS to realize that they elected the janitor to be president. Barry thinks they're 57 states. He can't pronounce corpsman off his beloved teleprompter. Barry Obama is a fool and Sarah Palin is much smarter than he is.

  20. 20

    She's warning about the coming inflation resulting from BO running the printing presses and the governments reckless spending. For all of you that think that inflation isn't around the corner… Remember it was Palin that warned your dumb arses.

  21. 21

    A janitor for President? A Columbia grad and a Harvard Law School Grad? Janitor, I don't think so. Maybe that's your job! And as for Sarah Palin, every negative comment I've written, has not been printed. I love Sarah, she is educated, well-read and smarter than Obama!!! NOT!!!

  22. 22

    I am a Democrat and don't agree with a lot of Sarah Palin's politics but the vitriol and hatred coming from some of the liberals in this blog are just unbelievable….Perez, I thought you said you were changing, You may not think she's intelligent but she's laughing all the way to the bank so she must not be that stupid as you want other people to believe. Give her another year and she'll even surpass you and Obama's networth and see who has the last laugh.

  23. 23

    Re: gerry in sf – Is that what the US has been reduced to, "net-worth"?

  24. 24

    Re: GothamGirl – He went to college because of affirmative action. He's a dumb lawyer. It happens. Liberals let the janitor become CEO. Is that analogy too difficult for your feeble mind?

  25. 25

    She is a fucking retard!

  26. 26

    Mario stop bullying Sarah Palin. I don't like her either but she made sense this time. Stop hatin' the republicans.

  27. 27

    Your last paragraph BULLIED Sarah Palin. So much for your promise to stop being a bully. Sarah has a journalism degree. DO YOU HAVE A COLLEGE DEGREE??Hollywood, NYC, and Vegas still slander Sarah and mock her just as the Wall Street writer and you did, Perez. The rest of the USA is not on your bandwagon anymore.

  28. 28

    Re: GothamGirl – If you check my comment it was addressed to Perez b/c he is a shallow, jealous and materialistic person who puts down people who are siccessful and more famous than him…let's face it.. he's so self centered and self righteous…don't think you can disagree with that.

    Touche there SP…you know when media people/writers free-shot personalities it is oft humiliating or painful to get hit by that creme pie in the face. Don't dish it if you can't take it is the axiom that applies here…

  32. 32

    Perez, she could kick you ass with one hand tied behind her back. People like you will do and say anything to make her seem small which only proves how much you fear her. If the past two years have taught us anything it's that the attempts to marginalize her have only made her stronger. You should do yourself a favor and ignore her, then maybe she would go away.

  33. 33

    have you ever noticed if your a republican the main stream media plays you off as stupid.and then theres joe biden,sheila jackson lee,al gore,and on and on and not a word.its not always what the media says its also what they dont say thats in their bias.remember ronald reagan was an idiot right?they will be proved wrong again.

  34. 34

    I can read Sam I am and I can see a rise in price in Green eggs and ham.

  35. 35

    I'm not gonna even read all the dumb comments below, most likely from the WOMENS RIGHTS GROUP~ who bash sarah palin every chance they get.

    So I will end with this
    GO SARA GO SARA~ tell them dumb f*ckers!

  36. 36

    This post makes me laugh. Perez's offer of apology to stop bullying only extends to outing people's sexual preference. He is still a bully of anything and anyone that doesn't fall under his gay agenda. He doesn't understand that tolerance does not belong to the gay movement, tolerance means understanding ALL who oppose your views.

    Plus, the only retards I see on this post are the ones that criticizes Sarah. The only reason they don't like her is because the left wing media told them not to. They don't like her because she speaks with an accent…. talk about intolerant. And for anyone that actually runs a home and does their own grocery shopping instead of mooching off mommy and daddy, grocery prices have risen BIG TIME…

  37. 37

    If Sarah Palin ever becomes President, say goodbye to Europe, you dumb pricks. The rest of them are all as bad as each other, but this bitch? Nah, she's a special kind of stupid.

  38. 38

    Um, she didn't bother to complete the fucking sentence from the Wall Street journal! That's why you get the dots…….at the end of the sentence that ends with restaurants. The sentence goes on to say that prices MAY rise in the next couple of years, NOT that prices have already risen. Pay a fucking fact checker. She is a piper for the uneducated trash that has ruined this country and people will believe anything that comes out of her lying mouth. Sad

  39. 39

    Sounds like valid point… She does sound like she's smart with these comments sure… but… I also read the article she is going off about. The fact is the prices of the foods sold in supermarkets as far as the products priced on the shelf go, are not rising… The packaging is shrinking and the prices are staying the same… Th manufacturers shippers and producers and packagers are saving money here not the super market becasue likely they will need to spend more to fill shelves since the food packaging is what's shrinking… So as Mr. Reddy indicated the correct terms were used as were the correct statements made… The rising cost issue is that the food packageing and manufacturing companies are losing money if they do not shrink containers the food is shipped out in… So sure if you consider that we are going to have to purchase less quantity per pop for the same price then she's in a sense correct with her retort but at the same time so was Mr. Redy in a matter of factly manner… So she is still dumb!

  40. 40

    She's a fucking moron.

  41. 41

    Re: esj

    She should not be commended for anything. She's a stupid cun*t.

  42. 42

    Gee Sarah I am very impressed that you can read - but - a big - but - you got your facts wrong!
    Oh well it takes a little time to undertsand what you read when you are learning.
