Race Car Driver/Commentator Michael Waltrip Make a Mean Statement Involving Sarah Palin

Ms. Palin is Highly Offended – But Why?

Apparently former VP candidate and resigned Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin sits around the house and monitors every time someone invokes her name in a manner that offends her.  Something like that happened just recently.

 . . . two-time Daytona 500 winner Waltrip used the term "master strategery" instead of "strategist" while trying to describe Brad Keselowski's crew chief Paul Wolfe. Realizing the error, Waltrip then incorrectly associated the term with the former Alaska governor and said it was "Palin strategery."

Now we’re not sure what any of that meant, but apparently Ms. Palin was highly offended.

While Palin also used the word in a December 2010 appearance on The O'Reilly Factor, she clearly believed Waltrip's reference to her during the NASCAR race in Las Vegas was misguided.

Tweeted Palin: "Hey Waltrip, final lap & you still don't have your facts right. Get some "strategery" and check your facts before you shoot off your mouth."

And apparently Ms. Palin was ignorant of the fact that actually Michael Waltrip was a fan.

Sarah and Michael in Happier Times

But the message to Ms. Palin here is to do one of two things.  Either get a thicker skin, you can afford a new one with all the money you are now making off your political fame, or lose the snarky rhetoric that you use.  Really, if you want  people to be nice to you then you need to be nice to them, that’s in the Bible,  meaning you should already know that.

And just to prove the "I can dish it out but I can't take it, boo hoo" attitude of Ms. Palin it should be noted that she went to CPAC and delivered a very personal attack on the President and some other folks.  But that's okay, in the Palin world she is allowed to say or do anything, but no one is allowed to even look askance at her.  Hey, if you can't stand the heat get out of the kitchen (and no that is not meant in a sexist way, it is meant in a Harry Truman way).

[Editor’s note:  Because he is highly caustic and snarky to others The Dismal Political Economist has no problem with anyone being that way back to him.  In fact he would like it because it meant someone noticed him.]
