Former Governor of Alaska and alternate-universe U.S. President Sarah Palin was on Fox News host Greta Van Susteren's show On the Recorder to talk about the State of the Union. And she packed her bag of zingers!
You see, on Tuesday the president gave a speech about salmon to the winners of a contest. He called this speech "Winning the Future," because
he is secretly a comic actor playing the president in a critically-acclaimed satirical British television show about middle-management culture right now we are losing the future, to THE POLITICO, and this was sort of a "half-time speech."
So: The joke. Well. It has to do with the letters start the words "Winning the Future." I'll give you a second. No, take your time. Did you get the joke? Sarah did!
"That was a tough speech to sit through and try to stomach. His theme last night was 'WTF'—'Winning the Future.' I thought, okay, that acronym is spot on. There were a lot of WTF moments throughout that speech,"
Oh. My. God. She went there! She went to the internet-acronym place! Sick burn, Sarah! State of the Union? More like State of the You SUCK, Obama! And the hits keep coming!
Anyway. What "WTF" moments in particular was Alaska's very own Jonathan Swift thinking of? Palin, a noted expert on Russia, had some totally coherent stuff to say about Obama's invocation of the Sputnik satellite:
He needs to remember what happened back then with the former communist USSR and their victory in that race to space. Yup, they won, but they also incurred so much debt at the time that it resulted in the inevitable collapse of the Soviet Union.
Now that's a knee-slapper! Everyone knows Ronald Reagan collapsed the Soviet Union with his bare hands and genial smile.
