Obama: Hey, You Know What? Maybe I'd Like Some Dutch Help After All

Decisive leadership.

A little something extra: super-liberal Greg Sargent, writing for the WaPo, was goofing on Sarah Palin for saying we should have accepted help from "the Dutch."

Now, that's the way he wrote it -- "the Dutch," in sneer-quotes.

Don't miss Sarah Palin's take: She faults the Obama administration for not soliciting the help of "the Dutch," who are "known for dikes and for cleaning up water and for dealing with spills":

Bwah-hah-hah-ha! "The Dutch!" Have you ever heard something so crazy?

Well, actually, dude, we have. From a "Dutch" "minister," in fact.

What does this mean? It means that Sarah Palin was talking about something he'd never heard before and was using sneer-quotes to indicate what an absurd idea he thought it was.

In other words, he was ignorant, and used his own ignorance against Sarah Palin.

I find that happens a lot with the left. They simply do not hear about this stuff and, as the MFM is mostly liberal, it doesn't publicize such things, and of course they don't read righty sites. So they just remain ignorant of many stories, but then get all arrogant about that.

My other observation is that the WaPo has a superliberal covering the left and another liberal covering the right. Balance.


Obama Uniting the Left and Right: the left pans Obama's address.
