Martin Bashir and Alaska's Sanitation Departments

I'd never heard of Martin Bashir until he came to MSNBC hosting an interesting and informative show at 12:00 PM Pacific.  He speaks with a warm British accent and is simply a likeable, calm and easygoing individual.  Mr. Bashir doesn't rant or rave but you can tell when something has gotten under his skin.  You can click the link and hear Martin deliver "clear the air" or just read it. 

Clear the Air

It’s now time to clear the air and towards the end of last week, almost by coincidence, given that the movie “Game Change,” was about to be released, Sarah Palin, in praising the Republican candidates, went back to that tired of chestnut about the president not having been properly vetted.
Sarah Palin: “I do appreciate that these men are continuing to duke it out in the arena of ideas and are allowing themselves to be vetted. So, thank you, gentlemen, who are running on the GOP tickets, staying in there, allowing yourself to be vetted by the media because they didn’t do it when Barack Obama ran.”

Now, I don’t know very much about Alaska’s Street Cleaning or Sanitation Departments. I really don’t know if it is an entirely privatized service or whether it’s administered through a public-private partnership.

But then, I’m not seeking to run as the governor of that great state. If I were, then I would take personal responsibility for understanding how waste disposal operates in Alaska.

Now consider that Sarah Palin was on the ticket for the most important position on the planet. And Here’s just one devastating example of why Mrs. Palin wasn’t vetted at all. She’s being asked, in the movie, about strains in the relationship between Britain and the United States over the issue of Iraq. Her response is incredible.

Sarah Palin: “I think the United States has always maintained a great relationship with the Queen. And John McCain will continue to have open dialogue with her."

Steve Schmidt:"Govenor, the queen is not the head of government in England, she’s the head of state."

Sarah Palin: "Well, then who’s the head of government."

Steve Schmidt: "The Prime Minister … heh."

That scene has been confirmed as accurate by the man who was questioning Sarah Palin. He recalls the sheer horror of learning that Sarah Palin knew absolutely nothing about one of America’s most important and historic allies. A nation that stood shoulder to shoulder with the United States during WWI, WWII, the Gulf War and the Iraq War and in Afghanistan.

Where one of the most important figures of 20th century history was Britain’s Prime Minister, Winston Churchill. But according to Sarah Palin, it was the Queen who governed the United Kingdom.

And she says that the president wasn’t properly vetted?

As I said earlier, I know nothing about the disposal of bodily waste in Alaska, but I do know crap when I hear it. And when Sarah Palin talks about vetting – you can flush that down the nearest toilet, along with any claim she might have had for the office of president.
