Newt Gingrich got one thing magnificently right last week. He called Barack Obama “The Food Stamp President.” Newt’s old; a bit behind the times. It should have been “The EBT-Card President.” Still, the shoe fits, and Obama should get stuck wearing it in November 2012.
The American Left, with its typical intellectual brilliance, assumed that Newt Gingrich only called Barack Obama “President Food Stamp” because he was black. Newt would have called a white president “Captain Safety-Net” instead. I remember all the times Ronald Reagan went around thanking Jimmy Carter for all the social welfare he handed out in the late 1970’s. Gingrich was clearly and obviously RAAAAACIST!
David Gregory interviewed Gingrich and furrowed his eyebrows in deep and sober concern over Gingrich’s use of coded language. His potential post to the Stuff Leftist White People Like website follows below.
“You gave a speech in Georgia with language a lot of people could be coded racially tinged language, calling the president, the first black president, the ‘food stamp president.’”
While I typically would classify Sarah Palin’s philosophical beliefs as American Pragmatism and Reality Television, she can slyly go Postmodern on leftist twits with the best in the business. She “Deconstructs” the implicit favoritism towards those of The Caucasian Persuasion underpinning Gregory’s worldview quite exquisitely below.
“Well, talk about racism – that was a racist-tinged question from David Gregory,” Palin declared. “He made it sound like that if you’re black you’re on food stamps and the president is referring to you being on food stamps. I think that’s racist.

And then, God Bless her, Sarah Palin did something unique. She not only pointed out that David Gregory is your typical bigoted Limousine Liberal, a veritable Ethanol Ethnocentrist. She suggests a solution for the problem that the David Gregorys, who infest the so-called journalistic profession, present. Sarah raves on below.
Why do we let the press, the media personalities get away with such? …. The real issue is we have 40-something million Americans on food stamps. You know why? Because we don’t have a robust economy …. because government has overreached, overtaxed and overspent and got us in debt and there isn’t enough private sector money out there creating jobs. That needs to be the focus, not allowing David Gregory to falsely charge Newt Gingrich as being a racist because he’s making a statement of fact about how many people are on food stamps.”
So how then, Governor Palin, do we reach this state of nirvana? She was totally on her game. She had that angle covered as well. More of Sarah Palin at her finest below.
“Well, I think to start with, we ignore some of these reporters and their requests for us to comment and be interviewed,” she said. “We know going in to it what they are going to do to a conservative. So why participate in their game? Instead, candidates need to get their message out via new social media, via fair and balanced reporters who will just allow the facts to get out there. Don’t participate in that goofy game that has been played now for too many years with the leftist lamestream media trying to twist a candidate’s words and intent and content of their statement.”

This is why Palin is like kryptonite to these people. This interview alone is worth three columns of unsolicited gynecological theorizing from the detestable Andrew Sullivan. Tina Fey’s pager is going off as we speak. Governor Palin just can’t be allowed to say such heretical things. It’s as bad as Copernicus claiming the Earth went around the Sun.
Tedious, maundering leftists like David Gregory have probably watched two or three episodes of “The Wire” on HBO to learn about American urban life. They are as obsolete as The Model T. They have nothing to add to the national conversation and dogmatically report left-wing “settled science.” Sarah Palin was correct to recommend we avoid this type of Journalist the way hotel staff should avoid high-ranking officials with the IMF.
