Robert Gibbs: A Transparent Tool

Home - by - February 9, 2010 - 14:33 America/New_York - 70 Comments

Oh, so hilarious, Gibbsy!

Imagine: He thought this joke was so good, he actually prepared it before the presser. MKH is calling him the Dane Cook of politics for ripping off a goof that’s already been done three times by national figures, including Palin herself, but it’s worse than that. The Daily Show did a double hit on it last night, first with Stewart reading off his hand and then Wyatt Cenac reading off his belly, so that’s five times at least.

Too bad you are actually like the tenth media person/public figure to make that alleged joke, Gibbs. Alleged because, in fact, the only time that it was funny, was when Palin herself did it, writing the words “Hi, Mom” on her palm while making a campaign stop with Governor Rick Perry.

Gibbsy, you are way behind the curve, as always. Even the buffoonish, and creepily obsessed, Andrea Mitchell beat you to it! Plus, a joke no longer works when the butt of the joke has already poked fun of herself. Although, I can see how you wouldn’t be used to that; the Obama administration does not seem to know about a little thing called self-deprecating humor.

See, not thinking that you are a perfect being, beyond reproach, is how most people behave. It’s one of those “little people” skills. You should look into it. I bet you expected Palin to act like your boss and start crying and bemoaning the big meany pantsers. I am going to be a “decider” now. My decision? Palin rocks. You stink. I also have a note on my hand and it says “Sorry, Gibbs. But she’s just not that into you.”

She’s getting to you, isn’t she, White House? She’s really getting under your super-thin skin. Now that is really hope-y, change-y.

    Let them joke. Let them continue to poke fun of people like Sarah Palin and the Tea Parties. Let them. Let them continue laughing all the way to the exit after November. These idiots are so completely out of touch with what is going on in this country. Let them keep up the routine. They keep showing their contempt for us. Let them! Pricks.

    Hey Lori! That has to be the sweetest thing I ever saw a public figure do, look at those 2 girls, talk about connection, I can just imagine the influence Sarah must have created in this little lady’s heart and spirit. I hope that little girl grows up to be a woman with Mrs. Palin’s principled character and care for all people she meets.

    I’ve seen and heard Mrs. Palin do many things that are open and honest, things from the heart, and that woman has a heroes heart for sure. If I knew nothing about her and saw this photo as the first exposure of her running for President of the US, it would be all I’d need for her to get my vote.

    But I know she not only has the ferocity of a Lioness, but the tenderness of a soul who values life and love above all else.
    What better protector of We The People and this great country we live in?

    PS, I’ll bet ya Piper wrote Hi Mom on her mom’s hand, they have been traveling together. A little put that in your pipe and smoke it back at ya to the dinosaur press for all the unconscionable acts of smear against her and her sisters, like only a kid can do. The apple don’t fall far from the tree. Weeeeeee go girl!
    Mrs Palin makes it into the White House? This lady would be a fucking terror, she took those crooks and thieves in Alaska to the cleaners without breaking a sweat, can you imagine the hurt she could put on the “machine” in DC, with the Constitution backing her up? There has to be a lot of people scared shitless of her in that cesspool of Sodom on the Potomac.
