Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin leveraged Ahmed Mohamed’s clock and blasted President Obama for praising the clock kid, reported the Washington Post on September 21. “Mother Grizzly” Palin, who vowed to take up arms against schools that didn’t allow her kid to bring cookies, is perfectly comfortable with the “nanny state” arresting a Muslim child for bringing his science project to school. The onetime Republican vice-presidential nominee was sure she’d see bomb in the homemade clock.
Palin admits to problems with language. She demanded Latinos “speak American” because she gets confused. Evidently she struggles with basic science too. She pontificated that if Mohamed’s invention was a clock, she was the Queen of England. In a long Facebook diatribe, Palin extrapolated that “believing that’s a clock in a school pencil box is like believing Barack Obama is ruling over the most transparent administration in history.”
Funnily enough, rabid liberal Bill Maher agreed with rabid Republican Palin that it looked like an “f–king bomb.” So clocks should be verboten because they look like bombs and are used in bomb-making? Then so should loads of common household items like aluminum foil and hair dye. If schools don’t know know the difference between a bomb and clock, it makes you wonder who should be the student and who should be the teacher.
Palin condemned dangerous “reactionary-slash-biased media” suggesting it was only press coverage that got Mohamed a White House invite. In an orgasm of mixed metaphors and soundbites, Palin railed that Obama’s “practice of jumping in cases prematurely to interject himself as the cool savior, wanting so badly to attach himself to the issue-of-the-day, got old years ago.”
The mother of twice-pregnant out of wedlock abstinence advocate Bristol Palin knows how that works. Mother and daughter cashed in on media to earn Bristol a job as no-sex-before marriage spokeswoman. Without it, Bristol would be just another unwed teen mom. Palin milks every issue of the day to play savior-goddess to downtrodden rich conservatives.
Both Palins’ fixation with Obama is getting “Fatal Attraction.” They never miss a chance to exploit anything he does to their hypocritical purpose. The Palins’ lambasted Obama for daring to see a cool invention in Mohamed’s clock and not over-reacting to the possible explosive. The only thing incendiary about Mohamed’s clock is the mind-blowing paranoia and posturing it ignited.
