Sarah Palin's Intelligence

Posted by Artem Russakovskii on October 6th, 2008 in Politics

image I was just listening to the VP debate from the other day, the one so successfully punned by SNL, and was convinced further, beyond a reasonable doubt, how clueless, primitive, and short-minded Palin is. She is just a puppet in McCain's senile hands – I cannot believe almost half of America is unable to see that. McCain is not a Maverick and she is not a Maverick by far. I just cannot believe she is even running. McCain = Bush. Anyway, before I get fueled up too much and smash my keyboard, here is my point:

If there is a definitive way that I have devised of telling if a person is intelligent or not is this: if you say nucELar, you are not intelligent. Case in point: the Dubya. Now, when Palin was blabbing about Iran (Eye-ran is the wrong pronunciation by the way), she mentioned these nucELar weapons at least 5 times. So if you still think Palin is worthy of a VP spot, even after this incredibly deep scientific analysis, then there is no reasonable way to argue with you.

By the way, Biden rocks and completely dominates Palin's tiny brain. She just cannot scramble her notes fast enough but man, can she dodge those questions and switch topics or what? Oh and Biden knows how to spell nuclear too.

Here is the full debate video, for reference.

P.S. Oh, and I realized who Palin reminds me of (mentally):

    So, mispronouncing nuclear and Iran makes her "clueless, primitive, and short-minded"? I fail to see any other arguments supporting your point regarding Palin.

  • No, she's primitive and short minded because of other obvious reasons. My theory only speaks for her (un)intelligence. The nucELar theory works. It will soon become an axiom.

    I'm pretty sure you mean nukUlar, not nucElar. I've never heard anyone say nucElar.

  • Sure, spell it any way you want – we all know what it sounds like.

    Nyuqelarr if you wish.

    Hey beer planet- just stick to beer, it’s probably what you know best. Besides she’s a hell of a lot smarter then you. Look where she is and look where you are. I rest my case.
    Maybe someday you too can run for vice-president-that is of your local bar league.

    Where is it written, or demonstrated otherwise, that financial success or celebrity is the direct result of intellect?

    There may be a correlation that intelligent people tend to manage their finances well, or take the necessary steps to secure well-paying jobs, but they have no guarantee of financial success.

    Further, there is a distinct difference between famous, notorious and infamous. Miss Quittypants is making her way through each of those designations.

    Face it: there is no acceptable reason for any person aspiring to lead the United States of America to be as ill-informed, flippant and ignorant as Sarah Palin is. There's an ap for that and it's simply to LEARN about things before you speak about them…crib sheet or not.

    • I'm not sure why you're talking about financial success – I never mentioned it and I don't see how it's relevant.

      She sure is a celebrity because of her appeal to middle America and that would be fine if it stopped there but what scares me is that people would actually vote for the dimwit and give her potential access to actually run the country. Of course, I agree with your last paragraph.

    My bad for the misunderstanding in my post…my reply was to Sarah at 1-19-2010 (oops)…most of Sarah Palin's followers seem to equate money with success, and Palin is well on her way to buckets full of dollars!

    I agree with you about all that you've pointed out!
