From the Vancouver Sun:

QUOTE
Right-wing darling Sarah Palin accused U.S. President Barack Obama on Sunday of leading a lax response to the Gulf of Mexico spill because he is too close to the big oil companies.

The former vice presidential candidate and Alaska governor, who champions off-shore drilling, criticized the media for not drawing the link between Obama and big oil and said if this spill had happened under former Republican president George W. Bush the scrutiny would have been far tougher.

"I donít know why the question isnít asked by the mainstream media and by others if thereís any connection with the contributions made to president Obama and his administration and the support by the oil companies to the administration," she told Fox News Sunday.

[...]

Palin, who quit the Alaska governorship after serving less than half of one term, famously promoted the slogan "Drill, baby, drill!" that rallied supporters while dismissing possible environmental impact of off-shore drilling.

If anything, I'd give Obama a harder time about because I support him as president and expect a lot more from him than I ever did from Clinton or Bush. Faulty logic there, lady.

Nothing like stupid Republicans to help get you brownie points with teachers.

Nothing like stupid Democrats thinking that opposing the Arizona bill will bring them the Mexican vote.

Well, it's Fox News. Go figure they'd swoon over her anti-Obama gushing. (Sometimes I wonder if she was even paying attention during the Presidential campaign.)

And in other news, Discovery is paying her (and the others involved in the show) a million dollars per episode for her to waltz around Alaska talking about it.
