Is Palin just misunderstood?

Posted By on Mon, Jul 6, 2009 at 9:13 AM

She thinks she is.

Palin spokeswoman Meghan Stapleton vouches for the authenticity of the (Facebook) posting in which Palin casts herself as someone who has been misunderstood:

“How sad that Washington and the media will never understand; it's about country. And though it's honorable for countless others to leave their positions for a higher calling and without finishing a term, of course we know by now, for some reason a different standard applies for the decisions I make.”

How sad that we misunderstand? What is she talking about?

How about this: How sad that you fail to understand, Sarah Palin.

The citizens of the U.S., most of them at least, are not as dumb as you think. You seem to be under the false impression that if you rattle off enough key words we won't notice that you're just jibber jabbering. Sorry to break it to you, governor: We notice.

Listen, Sarah. Go hole up in the Wasilla library. Spend some time reading history, geography and civics books.

When you're done there, head right over to the town shrink. You've got issues. Deal with them in the privacy of a psychiatrist's office, not on camera. You're not misunderstood. Your doctor, and perhaps a few meds, will help you realize that.

In fact, we see right through you. You're a power hungry bitch who isn't getting her way, so you're pasting on a fake smile right before dashing off to fulfill your "higher calling."

We get it. Now, run away damaged star. Lick your wounds and get your head straight. And, for goodness sake, stay the hell away from the media (and off of Facebook and Twitter). We'll stop covering you as soon as you stop making an ass out of yourself.

Sarah's greatest (misunderstood) hits:
