All I want for Christmas...


INGRAHAM: Would you agree to a debate with Al Gore on this issue?

PALIN: Oh my goodness. You know, it depends on what the venue would be, what the forum. Because Laura, as you know, if it would be some kind of conventional, traditional debate with his friends setting it up or being the commentators I'll get clobbered because, you know, they don't want to listen to the facts. They don't want to listen to some reasonable voices in this. And that was proven with the publication of this op-ed, where they kind of got all we-weed up about it and wanted to call me and others deniers of changing weather patterns and climate conditions. Trying to make the issue into something that it is not.

Pure entertainment, what with all the winking and disgusted sighing and whatnot.

One thing you can say about wingnuts is that they are awesome at derailing a debate right off the bat by just putting as much inane pseudo-intellectualism in their first declaration. Which in turn sends you scrambling to correct it in good faith as they ignore you and move on to the next inane declaration. So poor Gore would be still be earnestly trying to debunk Palin's first rebuttal ("It totally snowed today, ergo, HOAX!!111!!eleventyone!11) while Palin has moved on to how this is some sort of Kenyan conspiracy to destroy America. Also, ACORN.

They go on to agree that Al Gore's snobby ass would never take on Palin's aw shucks I'm jus' regular folks ass. Not that they have any rationale behind that claim, but they just know, like all folksy folks know. It's because of the elitism. And they are probably right in a sense, being that any logical person would see that it's a lost cause, as you just can't cut through bullshit quick enough in a timed debate like that. And then we'd be subject to Palin whining for the next few weeks about how pointing out that the Arctic cap is melting is totally sexism. Because the wicked witch melted too, and she was a woman like Palin is a woman, are you calling Palin a witch? And then the Very Serious pundits on the cable news networks would take on the major debate about whether climate change is real or if Palin is really a witch (and being that Palin isn't a witch, she's a good Christian woman, climate change must be a hoax and by the way, did you see it snowed last night?), because it would be irresponsible not to speculate if Al Gore was elitist-ly using "climate change"and "science" as a front for his raging hatred towards Real Americans.

On a side note, check the amount of major projection in that paragraph of Palin's. It's just stunning.
