Sarah Palin Gives Her $.02 On Bergdhal (She really should have saved her money)

You know, there are some people who really, REALLY should just keep their opinions to themselves. Especially if they don't want folks to start asking questions which may prove more than a bit uncomfortable to THEM. Sadly, Sarah Palin does not feel this applies to her.

Criticizing the president's praise for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was released after five years of captivity in Afghanistan, she opines... (h/t Talking Points Memo)

"No, Mr. President, a soldier expressing horrid anti-American beliefs – even boldly putting them in writing and unabashedly firing off his messages while in uniform, just three days before he left his unit on foot – is not 'honorable service.' Unless that is your standard."

Damn, Sarah! As you would say at this juncture, "Dems fightin' words."

If someone were to offer Sarah Palin a penny for her thoughts, they'd have change coming. Still, if she were capable of just a tiny bit of introspection, perhaps she'd recall the following.

"The fires of hell are frozen glaciers compared to my hatred for the American government, and I won't be buried under their damn flag.”

And also...

"I'm an Alaskan, not an American. I've got no use for America or her damned institutions.”

The person who "boldly" put those "horrid anti-American beliefs" into writing is a guy named Joe Vogler, founder of the Alaskan Independence Party, a secessionist group that wants Alaska to secede from the United States. Now, wanna take a guess at who was once a member of this group until 2002? None other than Sarah Palin's baby-daddy and purse holder, Todd Palin.

And while she and other conservative hypocrites are calling Bergdahl a "deserter" (and to be fair, the jury is still out on that one), one should not forget the fact that she "deserted" her post as Governor of her state because she couldn't stand the media scrutiny.

You know, Sarah, if you keep poking a hornets nest hoping to stir up trouble, sooner or later you're gonna get stung.
