Oh fer gawd's sake Sarah -- will you just STFU??
Sarah Palin joins the lemming-like chorus of right-wing buffoons in decrying Obama administration Attorney General Eric Holder's decision to try the five individuals accused of conspiring to commit the 9/11 attacks — including alleged mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed — in U.S. federal court in New York City.
Nevermind the successful precedent for such prosecutions (the 1993 World Trade Center bombers for example), but you really have to marvel at the level of ignorance from the righties as to what precisely is the defintion of "the rule of law" as it relates to the United States system of justice. Honestly, I don't think they have a fucking clue.
The uproarious, knee-jerk reaction to the announcement is typical of these know-nothing hyenas. Frankly, I'm convinced that Obama could don the hangman's hood and pull the lever himself and these conservative jackasses would still bitch and moan and call for his impeachment.
And as far as Sarah Palin goes?? Why would anyone in their right mind put any stock whatsoever in a single fucking thing the woman who did not know Africa was a continent and who thought Afghanistan was America's neighboring country has to say? Why is this woman's viewpoints relevant at all on this subject (much less any other)?
It boggles my mind to no end.
Anyhow, if the New York prosecutions of the 1993 WTC bombers were good enough for Rudy Giuliani, then Holder's decision to prosecute in the same manner sure as fuck ought to be good enough for Rudy's sycophantic proponents in the GOP and the rest of the conservative movement. But then again, the Attorney General and his boss the POTUS weren't black, liberal Democrats back then were they now?
Just saying . . . .
