Sarah Palin Slams First Lady Michelle Obama In New Book

In passages leaked from her forthcoming book America by Heart, Sarah Palin — the erstwhile quitter governor of Alaska, who now, by all indications, fancies herself as President of the United States — has taken another cheap shot at First Lady Michelle Obama.

In a passage on perceptions of racial inequality in the United States, Palin slams President Barack Obama, who, she asserts, “seems to believe” that “America — at least America as it currently exists — is a fundamentally unjust and unequal country.”

And then she goes after Michelle Obama:

Certainly his wife expressed this view when she said during the 2008 campaign that she had never felt proud of her country until her husband started winning elections. In retrospect, I guess this shouldn’t surprise us, since both of them spent almost two decades in the pews of the Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s church listening to his rants against America and white people.

    Here's a excerpt from my blog in response. The balance is at http://www.consciouslyamerican.blogspot.com.

    EXCERPT:

    White girls like Sarah who thought that the First Lady shouldn’t have some thing or some place or some one that they wanted and figured they had more of a, let’s say, right to have – these Sarahs – must’ve been a dime a dozen back when the First Lady was just Michelle, a little Black girl, matriculating at a Ivy League University. I remember all those reverse discrimination battles led by folks who never could recognize discrimination until it was ‘reversed.’ I have no doubt the Sarah’s in those crowds were mad at Michelle too figuring she was occupying some white boy’s rightful place and out of her own.

    I suppose it may be possible that Sarah don’t know that if Mrs. Obama had only accomplished what Sarah has accomplished in her own self development; she could never have had any of what Sarah has had. Yes, I accept that Sarah could be that purposefully dumb. But, do any of you believe that Mrs. Obama could have had any chance, as an unqualified Black woman, of getting one of the jobs that Sarah, an unqualified White woman, has had — Mayor of Wasilla, Governor of Alaska, and Vice Presidential Candidate of major political party, with or without affirmative action?
