The nation’s stupidest woman ever to be a national party’s VP candidate tried to explain why it was that Massachusetts’ Republican Senator Scott Brown would use the leverage Senate Democrats give to the 60th vote to water down and corrupt otherwise useful legislation — by, for example, exempting campaign donors with rich hedge funds from financial regulation.

I thought the simple answer was, "because he’s corrupt and he can." But the Boston Globe informs me that Sarah Palin, who can see her yard from her back porch and thinks it’s Russia, has a better explanation. Those New England unpatriots just aren’t constitutionally conservative enough to protect the Republic:

Palin, in an interview on Fox Business Network, was asked whether the Massachusetts Republican was “on notice” for siding with Democrats on several key votes.

“Well, you know, take the consideration, though, that that’s Massachusetts,” Palin said. “Perhaps they’re not going to look for such a hard-core constitutional conservative there, and they’re going to put up with Scott Brown and some of the antics there.”

“But up here in Alaska, and so many places in the US where we have a pioneering, independent spirit, and we have an expectation that our representatives in D.C. will respect the will of the people and the intelligence of the people,” she added. “Well, up here, we wouldn’t stand for that.”

Oh.

Now, I’m biased. I think my Senator has shown himself to be little more than an unprincipled opportunist who’s at least smart enough to know when Harry Reid is offering to make him King for a Day. He’ll take the crown, screw up the bill and the public and pose for cameras.

But otherwise, I guess we’re all just a bunch of wimps up here, even the center folds. It’s a Masschusetts thing, because we just don’t understand that "pioneering, independent spirit."

I’ll bet Palin thinks if it had been left up to those non-independent wimps in MA to start a war with the British back in 1775, it never would have happened. I guess that makes Republicans Tories. Tea, anyone?

Stupidest woman outside of Minnesota.
