Sarah Palin is Roman Helmet'd by Stephen Colbert

By: T.R. Slyder, TRSlyder@yahoo.com, AndyDisco on Twitter

Righties and Lefties argue whether Sarah Palin has sold her soul to the Devil, but after defending Rush Limbaugh's repeated use of the word "Retard", it is clear she has at least sold her soul to him. After demanding Rahm Emmanuel's resignation over use of that word, she came off as a righfully protective mother, and defender of decency, even if a resignation was a bit extreme, I see where she was coming from. Then Limbaugh had to go hog wild and bathe his audience in the word "Retard" to attempt to prove a wrong point. So how did Palin demand his resignation? By saying it was fine because Limbaugh was using "satire". Palin knows that Rahm Emmanuel cannot damage her brand, because she writes off his criticism as elitist, or socialist or plain-folk-hatin'. Knowing full well that Limbaugh could ruin her brand if he so chose, Palin acquiesced and fudged the definition of satire to wrongly defend him.

So what did that win her? Stephen Colbert pissing out the flames of her dignity as it burned to the ground.
