I was digesting her idea of an apology to Pope Francis, when I recalled that Sarah Palin is not much of a reader. I remember that from aught eight. The former half-term governor of Alaska and failed vice presidential candidate can’t be bothered with facts either. She’s totally unable to understand the concept of showing respect, at least to the Offices of the men she is trashing – such as the President of the United States and the leader of the largest church in the world – who becomes more visible and more “liberal” every day.
How can she not be aware of the Pope’s daily front-page activities? My guess is that she didn’t like his coming down so hard on the highly questionable activities of people like her and her cohorts. I don’t imagine the moneylenders in the Temple at Jerusalem were too fond of Jesus either, when he took a whip and drove them out.
At any rate, I doubt very much if Pope Francis was bothered by, or even noticed, the antics of the Paris Hilton (hmmm, Paris Palin?) of politics. I’m sorry, I probably should read more about her before saying something so catty, but I’m just following in Sarah’s fashionable footsteps.
In my own defense, from nymag.com, on September 12, 2008, and I quote, ‘ … Palin wore a pair of bright-red, peep-toe pumps with three-and-a-half-inch heels by Naughty Monkey, which is generally marketed to “women in their early to mid-20s who go clubbing.” Sales of Naughty Monkey shoes have increased by 50 percent on Amazon since Palin wore them.’ It goes on to say that, “Celebrities like Paris Hilton had been photographed in the brand’s shoes, but seldom, if ever, a 40-something politician.”
And so I rest my case. Let her critique fashion, not world leaders!
