Journalism is not a hobby — damn right

How outrageous, how contemptuous, how idiotic is Sarah Palin? Really. “As for doing an interview, though, with a reporter [Katie Couric] who already has such a bias against whatever it is that I would come out and say? Why waste my time? No. I want to help clean up the state that is so sorry today of journalism. And I have a communications degree.”

Palin is the mean Yogi Berra of politics. She has a communications degree? Can she speak in complete sentences? Why waste her time trying to inform the public — uh, maybe because she has nothing to say.

Let me tell you something, grizzle mama, journalism is not “Dancing With the Stars” or a so-called reality show about Alaska; it’s about trying to educate, to illuminate, to help people understand what’s going on in the world. I’m not religious, but journalism is a sacred profession, and your blabberings are blasphemous.

Phew. Now that I got that off my chest I can go to work. I can celebrate Thanksgiving. To you dear readers, Happy Thanksgiving!

    Maybe “blasphemous blabberings of the booboisie”? (I’ll meet you at the corner of Mencken and Agnew.)
