One in a series that takes a look at some of the zany and madcap things said by Sarah Palin.
Palin was asked to respond to criticisms that she was out-of-touch with the American public. She responded:
"I don't pump gas now but I remember what it was like pumping gas."
One wonders if she also had beers with that demographic.*
Alas, that wasn't Sarah Palin but our very own hard-working President.
There are just certain things people should steer clear of making reference to lest they appear as fools. In general: Nazi references made by anybody. Rape references from men. Pop culture references made by pols and most certainly, "clearing brush"-type references by effete, never-worked-a-single-damn-day-in-their-lives backbenchers who find themselves in the Oval Office with nary a clue but to hit the rewind button on the policies of their predecessor.
* Yes, it was indeed an incident involving another high-profile figure flashing his every-man cred that got this whole thing started.
