One in a series that takes a look at some of the wild, zany and madcap things said by the former governor of Alaska.
Unless you've been living under a rock you're probable aware that the ObamaCare online exchanges by which you purchase health insurance are experience some, er... glitches. And by glitches, we mean there are signs coming from the administration that maybe a delay of the individual mandate may not be such a bad idea after all. That which Ted Cruz could not accomplish may be done so through government bureaucratic incompetence.
Not before, though, Team O allows for a "tech surge", the best and brightest, you know, the best and brightest who should've been on the job from the get-go to get a crack at fixing all that is wrong with the exchanges.
tech, schmeck... is how we read Palin's reaction to this:
"Just fix it, so we can go forward," she added. "Fix the technology, and let's not get too bogged down in what happens if they're not able to fix it."
You can see the video of her remarks, here...
... and lo and behold that's not Sarah Palin, rather Sarah sez favorite that glittering jewel of colossal ignorance, House minority leader, Nancy Pelosi.
Well, Nancy, hate to break it too you but getting bogged down is exactly what's happening now because the damn exchanges don't work. The exchanges are the portals for the entire damn thing so if there' no fix it, there's effectively no ObamaCare.
Bonus points for her idiocy in claiming to know something about the tech business because she lives in California. It's like she can see Silicon Valley from her backyard.
Double bonus points for prattling on about how freedom means not being "chained to a policy." Got it, Nancy, because nothing says freedom like being required by law to sign up for a federal government program.
We scarcely believe we've heard nearly a minute and half of anything so vapid, insipid and ass-backwards.
The woman, if nothing else, is a credit to her profession so she's got that going for her.
