Sarah Palin Claims Jesus Celebrated Easter (WTF)?

Sarah Palin claimed today that Jesus Christ celebrated Easter during his time on Earth.

In an interview with Fox and Friends this morning, the former Alaska governor promoted her new book about the left's "war on Christmas" and argued that all Christian holidays should return to the traditional versions practiced by Jesus.

"It makes me so gosh darn angry," Palin explained. "The liberal left in this country has targeted Christian holidays and is trying to secularize them right out of existence.

"When Jesus celebrated Easter with his disciples there were no Easter bunnies or egg hunts. There were no Easter sales at department stores or parades in the street. Easter was a special time of prayer and Christian activism.

Singing Easter songs and eating Easter bunnies.

which the so-called Christian Churches, Inc. later co-opted for their own pleasure and profit.

8. Um, Daily Currant = The Onion

It's a similar parody news website. A quick trip to its front page, which features not only this story but also "Obamacare Website Accidentally Enrolls Thousands in Sex Offender Registry" and "Nancy Grace Arrested for Murder," would have confirmed that.

because the Republicans are so effed up even the strangest stories could be real.
and often reality is thought to be Onion stories.

especially the stuff posted here. You can post anything about Sarah Palin being dumb and we would believe its the type of thing she would do.

9. I think sarah forgot something. Don't worry I fixed it for you sarah.

She was supposed to say:

"When Jesus celebrated Easter with his disciples there were no Easter bunnies or egg hunts. There were no Easter sales at department stores or parades in the street. Easter was a special time of prayer and Christian activism. Jesus and his disciples arrived in Jerusalem riding dinosaurs and went straight to wal-mart to get the bread and booze... (snip)

17. When a title appears that really, really nails something, I suspiciously go down to the url first,

 

or to see if there is one* and where it originates...so as not to get too excited that the MSM is "coming around" or is actually "checking out the forest instead of just the trees". Still, love the humor.

20. Too stupid to knw how stupid she is

 

Seems about right...

The Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which an unskilled person makes poor decisions and reaches erroneous conclusions, but their incompetence denies them the metacognitive ability to realize their mistakes. The unskilled therefore suffer from illusory superiority, rating their own ability as above average, much higher than it actually is, while the highly skilled underrate their abilities, suffering from illusory inferiority. This leads to the situation in which less competent people rate their own ability higher than more competent people. It also explains why actual competence may weaken self-confidence: because competent individuals falsely assume that others have an equivalent understanding. "Thus, the miscalibration of the incompetent stems from an error about the self, whereas the miscalibration of the highly competent stems from an error about others

The effectiveness of one's satire can be roughly gauged by seeing how many people insist either that the satire is lame or that they totally weren't fooled by it.

43. First off...

...it's capitalism that is seeking to turn all of these holidays into cash cows. I'm sure that the Israeli equivalent of Hallmark has cards and gifts for every major and minor Jewish holiday.

Only ten more weeks of shopping before Tu Bishvat! Order your fruit platters now! And don't forget to decorate the Tu Bishvat tree! This year we have LEDs to light up the eucalyptus tree! Check out the "seasonal" section of Target for more great values!


Second off, satire like this is just a Faux News interview away from being true.

Third off, she probably actually proposed this to her political staff as a talking-point until it got shot down.

45. You go Sarah

What do you think Easter celebrates?"

"Well, Brian, Easter celebrates, you know, sticking it to all the liberal lefties out there who want to be taking our guns and our freedom," Palin responded. "It celebrates the rights of the unborn and the right to religious freedom, to not have government come in and tell you who to believe in and who not to ..."

"It celebrates the death and resurrection of Jesus," Kilmeade interrupted. "It celebrates his death and resurrection from the dead. Now Sarah, tell me how can Jesus celebrate his own death before he died?"

Palin stared blankly into the screen for about 15 seconds, before co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck cut to commercial.


I can picture this in my mind, big time. That dumbass look she gives.

I wish she would just go back to Alaska and retire. But we know her all to well. She's in it for the money.
