Noam Chomsky, who’s written over 100 books, has said the former Alaska governor and Republican vice-presidential nominee was right about Barack Obama’s 2008 election slogans.
The guy hasn’t been relevant to pretty much anything in about three decades, and hasn’t said anything different or original in that time either. To say nothing of the fact that his understanding of actual living people and what motivates them has never been any deeper than the superficial academic level as we all know. Isn’t it precious how much the right wing, generally populated by people with the same 1/4-inch deep intellectual understanding of actual human beings as Chomsky himself is so excited about this?
Let’s face it, while The Onion had his number two years ago, they could have done this satire on him in 1990 and it would have fit just as perfectly.
