What Part of “Everyone” Doesn’t Sarah Palin Understand?

According to the Huffington Post, Sarah Palin weighed in on the Wisconsin protests in a Friday night posting on her Facebook page. In the posting addressed to “union brothers and sisters” (cough, cough), Palin says Wisconsin taxpayers shouldn’t be asked to pay for benefits “that are not sustainable.” She says “real solidarity means everyone being willing to sacrifice.”

In Palin-speak, apparently, “everyone” means middle-class public servants. It clearly doesn’t mean those Americans in the richest 2%–the ones whose tax breaks Palin and her Tea Party buddies are so anxious to protect.

The Yiddish word for this is “chutzpah.” (Look it up.)

  1. It’s funny, a few months ago I pointed out that I found it folly to extend tax cuts on the top 2% of earners because the rates have dropped so low in the last 30 years. I was cat-called and labeled a socialist.

    I find a lot of irony that the same people that were so critical of me, are cheering the downfall of unions. I fear that today’s passing of the “right-to-work” law will result in lower wages and an increase in poverty in our state.
