No, seriously, according to the New York Times:
But an examination of her swift rise and record as mayor of Wasilla and then governor finds that her visceral style and penchant for attacking critics — she sometimes calls local opponents “haters” — contrasts with her carefully crafted public image.
Out of all the things that are so wrong with this Vice Presidential nominees Sarah Palin (she doesn’t believe that dinosaurs exist and she prays for oil pipelines ) I think the fact that a mayor of Alaska using the term out of the Black vernacular is quite possibly one of the funniest things I’ve seen in a long time.
I could see Obama calling everyone from the smear machines to the dude on the block a “hater,” but Palin? Looks like she’s been hanging around her 17 year old daughter and her redneck boyfriend too much.
So I must dedicated Manio’s video “Hi Hater” to our future Vice President. Can you almost hear her singing this in the mirror in that Fargo accent?
And yes, as much as I joke, we have to be serious here: this lady is quite possibly the most dangerous person to ever get into the vicinity of the White House. Donate or volunteer for Obama today to ensure that this is NOT a possibility.
