Palin Misquotes Albright: "Place In Hell Reserved For Women Who Don't Support Other Women"

At a rally on Saturday in California, Sarah Palin offered up a rather jarring argument for supporting the Republican ticket. "There's a place in Hell reserved for women who don't support other women," the Alaska Governor said, claiming she was quoting former Clinton Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.

The statement came after Palin had recounted a "providential" moment she experienced on Saturday: "I'm reading on my Starbucks mocha cup, okay? The quote of the day... It was Madeleine Albright, former Secretary of State [crowd boos] and UN ambassador. ... Now she said it, I didn't. She said, 'There's a place in Hell reserved for women who don't support other women.'"

Actually, Albright didn't say that. The accurate quote is, "There's a place in Hell reserved for women who don't help other women." (Sources made the same point to CBS's Scott Conroy.)

Palin seemed to realize that the line could be viewed as grating. As the audience cheered, she remarked: "Okay, now, thank you so much for receiving that well. I didn't know how that was gonna go over. And now, California, let's see what a comment like I just made, how that is turned into whatever it'll be turned into tomorrow with the newspaper."

Albright responded to Palin's remarks in a statement to the Huffington Post on Sunday. "Though I am flattered that Governor Palin has chosen to cite me as a source of wisdom, what I said had nothing to do with politics. This is yet another example of McCain and Palin distorting the truth, and all the more reason to remember that this campaign is not about gender, it is about which candidate has an agenda that will improve the lives of all Americans, including women. The truth is, if you care about the status of women in our society and in our troubled economy, the best choice by far is Obama-Biden."

Nothing says I love women like forcing your 17-year-old daughter to keep an unwanted pregnancy and making her marry Winnebago-Levi, or making women pay for their rape kits. If Palin's vagina loves my vagina any more than it already does, my vulva lips might swallow her whole hole.

PS: Let's not forget to vote for DM's essay.

There's a bad sci-fi flick in here about giant vulvas fighting each other with Bush the Giant Penis as the comedy relief.

Good thing we have early voting here in Ohio, I can't wait to vote for a dick and not have to pull the lever for a vagina, capped off by doing some fuckin' redneck shit.

I'm sure there's a little schaudenfruede coming into play here, but I almost WANT you guys to vote McCain and Palin in, if only to see just HOW many stupid things they can say and do over the course of four years. I honestly think that even G-Dub looks at Palin and thinks, "Are you fucking KIDDING me?".

Of course, the fact that I am thousands of miles away and largely insulated from most of the damage they could cause might explain my glibness.

She should know about a special place in H-E-double hockey sticks (sorry it had to be put that way) for women who do not help (insert rape kit info here) other (insert no matter if its rape or incest here) women.

Cormac Brown said...

What she meant was "women who do not help her get to the Oval Office" are going there.

Remember folks, the longer she stays down in the lower forty-nine states, the closer Alaska is to being overrun by moose, wolves, and Putin rearing his "ugly head" into her house.

Joe said...

Hey, she's at least (mis) quoting a good woman with Albright. Normally she's quoting the fascist Westbrook Pegler.

That's not correct, Katie. My cunt Sarah didn't mean ALL women. There are some who will go to hell anyway:

I've been thinking about some of the funny nicknames bloggers we know use for public affairs people, places and things. I've decided of all the Bush nicknames I really like "Chimpy" the best and I was wondering about it's origins. The first time I saw it was on DISTRIBUTORCAPny's blog. I'd love to give him the credit.

"Mooselini's" your creation, si o no? I like "Caribou Barbie" very much but haven't a clue who invented it.

The Palins are great because almost any nickname works, although I am pretty proud of "The Bubble Boy" for Trig. That is absolutely my creation.

As is the "Telegraph Wire" for the blogosphere.

O'Tim came up with "Blogovia" which I also like a lot.

Fredrick Schwartz, I believe, came up with "Walnuts" for McCain, which is my favorite for him. I added "Grandpa" to it today for the first time having seen him referred to as "Grandpa" for the first time somewhere this week. I've also seen "Gramps," which could be a DISTRIBUTORCAP gem.

I do like "McPOW" quite a bit. Is that yours?

Fred and I each bit an old 70s commercial during football for signature phrases. Fred uses the Fram Oil Filter guy's: "You can pay me now. Or you can pay me later." I use the Sylvester Stallone/Nolan Cromwell United Way commercial: "I can always take a lesson. Or give one."

I claim credit for inventing "Big Sammy" and the "Big Pink People," as well as "The Meth Tweaker" for Biden.

I also was the first to refer to right-wing Jews in general as doing "folkloric dancing."

For Lieberman, "Holy Joe" has been around forever. It may even have come from the MSM.

The Boss invented "Theocratic Authoritarianism."

If Diane Tomlinson didn't invent "asshat," I don't know who did, because I first saw it used was by her. She definitely invented "Edu-Con." And I also think she came up with "Mittens" for Mitt Romney, which I think is perfect. PRICELESS.

Suzi Riot, I believe, is responsible for coming up with "Fucktard."

I love "Thomas Friedman's Magic Moustache Of Understanding" which comes from a Tom Tomorrow cartoon.

"MoDo" for Maureen Dowd has been around forever, too. Could also have been made up by Taibbi it might even go back to Michael M. Thomas, at the NY Observer, who used to write those finance pot-boilers.

"Tweety" seems like the Chris Matthews standard nickname and I saw that one first in Taibbi's old NY Press column. That really is priceless. TWEETY.

I use "The Woman Who Ate Candy Crowley" but I bit that structure from Baseball Prospectus who used it for Pedro the year he came out of spring training really overweight.

Don't know if you ever read BALL FOUR or I'M GLAD YOU DIDN'T TAKE IT PERSONALLY but Bouton had some story about an umpire named Rice and that story made me feel like I was always on the verge of coming up with a great one for Condi using Bouton's story. Apparently, in 1969, in the AL whenever the umpire Rice went out on the field wherever he was, someone always had a sign that said "Hey Rice, What Comes Out Of A Chinaman's Ass?" It was perfect because of how sold-out to the PRC because of war policy the US is. I just wasn't clever enough to nail it.

I think Fairlane came up with "Care-Bear" and "Captain Gumdrop" for Obama and used some variations on those for Obama's January-March White Gentile supporters.

The Jewgirl absolutely has a COPYRIGHT on ANYTHING VAGINAL. She's the MacGyver of variations on that theme. You could give her two random letters in Sanskrit and two letters in Old Church Slavonic and she could make a very understandable modern English "cunt" reference with it.

Absolutely, positively, the same for D-CUP with anything TITTY.

I'm probably selling DISTRIBUTORCAPny WAY short on this because he's really prolific with this stuff.

The radio guy Mike Malloy calls Wolf Blitzer "The U Boat Commander". And I'm not sure but I believe Randi Rhodes came up with putting the honorific "The" before some ridiculous right-winger's name.

One thing's for sure: this bend in the river is much more creative with nicknames than the Asshats are. The only one they seem to have is BARACK "HUSSEIN" OBAMA. Which is totally "Booooring, Booooring, Arsenal."

Randal, man, we got to formalize this somehow and assign credit where it belongs.

I like the list. Gavlae Reudo Maxric our fearless copy editor came up with the "Wingnut Roundup." I really like that one. Though I wish a few more things like this list would go "viral" from this blog.

The first time I called anyone an asshat was after Joey DiMarco tried to kiss me when we were both 11. That was a long time ago and it just popped into my head. He always wore a Cubs hat turned around rally style and any boy who tried to kiss me was an ASS!


Diane Tomlinson said...
I still say "eat the rich!" But that's because Jodie Foster is rich and well . . . you can connect the dots there. I don't think you need me to draw you a picture.
