Fox News contributor, former half term governor and failed vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin had a few WTF moments Wednesday night while telling fellow Fox News on air personality Greta Van Susteren her take on Spudnut, Sputnik and President Barack Obama's State of the Union address.
Excerpts of Palin's remarks follow:
And his theme last night... was the "WTF," you know, "Winning the Future." And I thought, "OK, that acronym, spot on." There were a lot of "WTF" moments throughout that speech.
That was another one of those WTF moments, when he so often repeated this Sputnik moment that he would aspire Americans to celebrate. And he needs to remember that what happened back then with the former communist USSR and their victory in that race to space, yes, they won, but they also incurred so much debt at the time that it resulted in the inevitable collapse of the Soviet Union.
You know what we need is a "spudnut" moment. And here's where I'm going with this, Greta
Well, the Spudnut shop in Richland, Washington -- it's a bakery, it's a little coffee shop that's so successful, 60-some years, generation to generation, a family-owned business not looking for government to bail them out and to make their decisions for them. It's just hard-working, patriotic Americans in this shop.
To summarize: As for winning the future, Palin says "WTF" - As for the cold war, Sputnik was responsible for the fall of the Soviet union - As for potato donuts, America needs a "Spudnut" moment.
