Que Sarah Sera


Frankly, I was ready to move on. With all the ballots cast, I would've been perfectly happy to go back to crusading against the serial comma. But as big as this election was for America, our social progress was almost eclipsed by the country's grammatical confusion.

Did you witness the election night slapstick, how anchors and pundits corrected one another over whether it was "a historic night" or "an historic night"? Stewart and Colbert actually got in a tiff about it. The problem was the TV personalities couldn't figure out if they were speaking or reading.

If you're speaking, "an historic" is acceptable, but you can't say the H: It's gotta be "an 'istoric." If you do pronounce the H, or if you're writing it down, go with "a." You wouldn't say, for example, "Someone should give Sarah Palin an hysterectomy before she spreads her devil spawn any further." You'd say "a hysterectomy." Same with "a historic."

In another shocker, the good governor herself wasn't immune to linguistic foibles leading up to the big day. Just before votes were cast Sarah Palin told Fox News' Sean Hannity she was "very excited and anxious for the 4th."

I suspect Hannity was too busy drooling to notice, but the word she probably meant was "eager," not "anxious." Unless she was trying to tell Fox News viewers she had anxiety about losing--which she didn't--she made the all too common mistake of confusing "anxious" and "eager." It's an important distinction: She was eager for Election Day; she's anxious about the impending hysterectomy she doesn't yet know we've scheduled for her.

But perhaps the most prized spoil of the election is the richest word to enter the lexicon in a long time. Like all the best neologisms, it's descriptive, it's self-explanatory and it just makes you feel so good: "Palinfreude."

Even more than reports that she didn't know Africa was a continent, it may be the best thing Sarah Palin gave us in her short, inglorious political life ... other than President-elect Obama, of course.

If only she knew what it meant, she could enjoy it too. Seems like it'd be right up the vindictive bitch's alley.

“According to Meriam-Webster anxious can mean: 1 : characterized by extreme uneasiness of mind or brooding fear about some contingency : worried 2 : characterized by, resulting from, or causing anxiety : worrying 3 : ARDENTLY OR EARNESTLY WISHING Sarah Palin used the word correctly. But I guess you don't like that do you? Kinda makes you look..... stupid. Doesn't it? That must be why you are so "anxious about the impending hysterectomy she doesn’t yet know we’ve scheduled for her." Why would you write something like that? Why threaten violence against this woman? Why attack the very essence of her gender by threatening to remove her ovaries and uterus? WHY?? Does she somehow threaten your masculinity? Does she threaten your livelihood? Why do you feel the need to sink so LOW? You call her a "vindictive bitch" but where is the evidence to back up that statement? Please quote your source, any source. You threaten violence against a woman for no reason other than she had the audacity to run for Vice President. I sincerely hope you don't have any daughters now and that you never do. You, and people like you, are the reason I cannot and will not support Barack Obama. ”

“What is with you? Sarah Palin is no more a vindictive B**** than she is the man in the moon. In fact, she's a down-to-earth person who's actually accomplished some things, like bargaining with oil companies to give profits from the harvest of natural resources directly to the people of Alaska, and negotiating with Canada to create the natural gas pipeline. Thanks to Palin's foresight, you probably will enjoy a more secure country. But I wouldn't expect a sexist jerk like you to ever admit it. I hope I haven't committed too many grammatical errors here, but if I have, I'm sure in your manly way you will point them out. By the way, I'm a doctor, and want to remind you that in the USA we don't sterilize women without their knowledge or consent. Hopefully, that doesn't change under the future administration.”

“Dude, you need to be given a vasectomy because your pompous man parts clearly make you a threat to women everywhere. Stay the hell away from Sarah. She actually does a job for a living. You, just talk. I've watched so many women be threatened this campaign season that I can no longer actually watch the moral and ethical gymnastics that take place on the news programs anymore. Maybe you do need a vasectomy--or a lobotomy, not that it would change much. If so, I volunteer. It's right up this particular "vindictive bitch's alley."”

You also refer to a fabricated narrative - a story if you will - about Governonr Sarah Palin not knowing something about Africa. It turned out to be a LIE. MSNBC had to apologize for promoting this LIE. And the hysterectomy you've "scheduled" for the sitting Governor of Alaska..... That could be and should be construed as a threat to a US governor. And you ought to be arrested for such a threat. This column should NEVER be pulled. It should remain as a warning to any woman who chooses to run for public office.

Secondly, I wonder how "eager" you are to answer for your comments? http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/eager You see, Jeff, it is important that all men choose their words carefully. We must all be willing to accept the consequences when we choose to wield our poison pens. So, if some stranger were to tap you on the shoulder and, removing the blood-thirsty scalpel from hand, force you to confront your misogyny face to face, just how eager would you be to defend yourself, mano a mano?

“Jeffrey Barg, Samuel Johnson would be so proud of you. Like him you cling to the past, desparately trying to force an ever-changing beautiful language into the stultifying rules of an already-dead one, codifying, limiting with endless, meaningless boundaries, imposing structure where none was necessary for centuries before. Thank whatever god you pray to that Johnson came after Shakespeare and Chaucer, Christopher Marlowe, Ben Johnson, and Francis Bacon; none of whom knew how to spell Johnson's English, but all of whom are more fondly read and remembered than he (except, of course, by scholars like you and me). I know the value of grammar, but I also recognize the value of oral language, personal language, oral history. What I don't understand is someone like you. Why do you hide behind your rules and templates? Why do you pretend to care for language when what you really want to do is use your knowledge for personal attack? Further, sir, I do not understand why your mind could find only the word "hysterectomy" when there are so many fine words in our language, eg. "It would be an honor to speak to the American people in a personal and an honest way," or "It would be a horrific moment to have my daughters and son insulted by a pedant who shows off his knowledge," or "I am a mysogynist (a hater of women) who pretends that he is not." Is that pedantic enough for you? Did I put all my commas in the right place? I hope so, because I am not sure you would understand my meaning if I did not follow all of Mr. Johnson's rules. cat You may respond to me at catsden.wordpress.com, but mind your manners please. ”

“Clearly it's YOU who has the problem, Jeffrey Barg (or should that really be 'Barf'?), not Sarah Palin. WHY in heaven's name does she scare the dickens out of you? Are you like the emasculated dummy Tucker Carlson who feels he has to cross his legs when meeting a smart, savvy, accomplished woman? Makes you feel inferior, perhaps? This sort of acerbic attacks on a woman who does not deserve such vileness reflects solely upon the attacker than the attacked. If you have no insecurities about your masculinity, you will find no need for such expressions of pathological hatred towards someone who has done nothing but run for the VP slot after having been a mayor, a governor, and still is a sitting governor, a wife and mother of five. She was also a good basketball player, a beauty contestant who found a way to get money for college. She also had the guts and fortitude to go against her own party to fight corruption in her state, and has governed Alaska as a tremendously popular executive among her consituents. Perhaps you feel threatened by her ability to be so good at practically everything she does while complaining about nothing? You can seem to do nothing more than spew your bilious hatred here in the safety of the invisible ether. The debunked 'Africa is a country' story has been addressed by others here - you can't even get your facts straight. But who cares about facts and fairness when you can always dispense ugly, bitter bile and poison with no fear of retaliation by your subject, hey? You are sorely mistaken if you think Sarah Palin had 'a short, inglorious political life.' You can only wish. Begone with you and your misogynistic drivel.

“I am much less worried about grammar and vocabulary than I am about the overt woman hating speech scattered throughout this article. The blatant disregard for women's safety, the disrespect thrown at women candidates, women in power in companies, and women in general: is appalling. Whether the word is pronounced correctly, or whether the punctuation is right, is much, much, much less important than the underlying dark attitude exhibited here. We had two qualified women running in this presidential race. Each one was from a different political philosophy. Both were trashed. Both were verbally assaulted. Both were disrespected. Both were expected to take it in stride and pretend they were big enough to take it, because, you see, to do anything less would have been unmanly. All the while, the comments became darker and darker. The attitudes became more and more disrespectful. Things said and done to these women by news people, by other candidates, and even their respective party leaders would have been unthinkable if done or even attempted to be done to a man of equal stature. Oh well! Let the weak little woman go crawl back into her hole and leave all that big job of running the government to those BBBBBBBBBBBBBIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIGGGGGGGGGGGGGG Men! Once she has been put into her place, they will go ahead and do the job. No interlopers allowed here! Now don't you feel better? Perhaps we should schedule the grammar king a castration and prostate-ectomy? You know, completely neuter him. Completely make him an it. While we are at it, maybe we can find some way to give him a brain transplant, hopefully with a brain that knows how to be respectful. Then maybe he can actually see that women are the equals of men and always have been. Maybe he can justify his sorry existence some other way than by bashing women gratuitously.
