For those of you who missed it, Sarah Palin has a new book out, therefore she suddenly gives a damn about politics again.
While promoting her book under the guise of commentating on current politics, Palin had compared federal debt to slavery. In response, MSNBC's Martin Bashir recounted various atrocities committed under slavery, including slaves being forced to defecate on each other, and suggested that Palin refrain from commentary in the future until someone defecates on her in turn.
Bashir has since announced that he is resigning from MSNBC following a massive collective temper tantrum by everyone ever employed by Fox News.
Sarah Palin, however, is clearly not satisfied.
On Thursday, Palin told the hosts of Fox & Friends that she is accustomed to being a victim of liberals (which explains why she runs crying to Fox News every single time), but that she hoped Bashir's comments did not discourage others from trying to start a business.
"I just hope that unprovoked attacks like that don’t result in people being hesitant to jump in the arena anyway," said Palin, "to get out there and serve the public or start a business or really commit themselves to changing within their family, their community, their world, doing whatever they can despite the fact that, in this world, you are going to be hurt and attacks will come your way."
We'll start with the obvious: Bashir's comments were not "unprovoked." They were in response to Palin's comparison of federal debt to slavery.
More importantly, how would this discourage someone from starting a business?
Either Palin got her talking points confused again, or she just let it slip that her only interest in politics is how much money she can make off of it.
