Roger Ebert: Sarah Palin is just an "American Idol."

I won't go over the "Lipstick" thing since by the time you've read about Obama's insult here, you've probably read it everywhere. I will admit that it's obvious code. Obama may be an inexperienced candidate, but he's not outright dumb. He knew that dogwhistle.

Anygay:

Movie Critics hate Sarah Palin!

Sarah Palin is:

[T]he "American Idol" candidate. Consider. What defines an "American Idol" finalist? They're good-looking, work well on television, have a sunny personality, are fierce competitors, and so talented, why, they're darned near the real thing. There's a reason "American Idol" gets such high ratings. People identify with the contestants. They think, Hey, that could almost be me up there on that show!


And this is different from Barack Obama how, Mr. Ebert? My mind is puzzled at how the Obama-Left want to compare Obama and Palin. It really is.

Wasn't Obama the "rockstar"? That he could deliver a good speech? That he's an inspiration to so many Americans that could identify with him that "you can be anything you want to be"?

You can't accept the identity-politics of Barack Obama, and then denigrate that of Sarah Palin because she's an evil Republican! It's a losing argument.

To wit:

An Obama supporter meets someone who says "I like Obama because he's cool! He's young! He's the future!" Does that person start talking to that person about policy? Does that supporter tell this stranger "I hope you like him for more than his personal biography"? No.

Instead, they just say "Great! Tell your friends to vote! We need change from Bush!"

But if that same Obama supporter meets someone who says "I like Sarah Palin because she's cool! She's young! I like her a lot!" Would that same Obama supporter give a passing compliment or respect? "NO! SHE IS EVIL SHE WANTS TO BAN BOOKS [false] AND MAKE US A CHRISTIAN NATION [false] AND IS ABSOLUTELY WRONG FOR THIS COUNTRY [debateable, but this person isn't up for debate, mind]!"

That's how Ebert comes off. Saying one thing, but denying saying the same thing toward a comparable social reality.

You bring up sociology and Sarah Palin, you draw parallels to Barack Obama. And you look like a big, stinkin' hypocrite.

Ebert and his hypocritical, Obama-worshipping friends in Hollywood have lost their g-d minds.

Palin's "crime," it seems, is that she threatens Obama's presumptuous, world tour stroll to his coronation.

This stuff is sickening.

Didn't Ebert only recently narrowly escape Death's grip? He hasn't found his way to a better form of humanity YET!? Fool!

I hate to point this out to you but thinking he can become president with absolutely no political experience at all and disinfranchising 13M voters dividing the party and picking Joe Biden as his running mate of "change" and believing that the worse Geo. Bush is the more entitled and qualified he is becomes does qualify him for absolutely dumb.
