"Et Tu, Dufus?" (with Apologies to William Shakespeare)

Friends, Romneybots, CBSnewmen, lend me your ears;
I come to bury Palin, not to praise her.
The gaffes that candidates do lives after them;
The good is oft interred on the cutting-room floor;
So let it be with Palin. The noble Frum
Hath told you Palin was uncultured:
If it were so, it was a grievous fault,
And grievously hath Palin answer'd it.
Here, under leave of Brooks and the rest -
For Brooks is an honourable man;
So are they all, all honourable men -
Come I to speak in Palin's funeral.
She was my friend, faithful and just to me:
But Wallace says she was rebellious;
And Wallace is an honourable woman.
She hath brought many operatives home to Wasilla
Whose ransoms did the Alaska coffers fill:
Did this in Palin seem ambitious?
When that mothers of special-needs children have cried, Palin hath wept:
Ambition should be made of sterner stuff:
Yet Couric says she was out of touch;
And Couric is an honourable womman.
You all did see that on the Campaign
I thrice prevented her an open microphone,
Which she did thrice refuse: was this ambition?
Yet Schmidt says she was dishonest;
And, sure, he is an honourable man.
I speak not to disprove what Schmidt spoke,
But here I am to speak what I do know.
You all did love her once, not without cause:
What cause withholds you then, to mourn for her?
O judgment! thou art fled to brutish beasts,
And men have lost their reason. Bear with me;
My heart is in the Tea Party there with Palin,
And I must pause till it come back to me.

That’s fantastic!

(One question - prevented or presented a microphone?)

Thanks! :-)

Both:

McCain prevented her, *and* she refused to go heavily off-message, even when the crowds were chomping at the bit.

She has even caught flak since the campaign for having SarahPac contribute to (IIRC) McCain *and* Lindsay Grahamnesty -- I suspect it is professional courtesy and not incipient RINO-ism.

Cheers!

Lolol. Great stuff.

They must really fear Palin. They can’t stop ridiculing her. .

Yes they do. She is not a victim nor does she play one on TV. The entire liberal strategy is based on victimhood. She ignores it and it has them in fits.

If we’re talking about Steve Schmidt, wouldn’t it be “Et tu, Priapus?”

Et tu, Brute (Brutus = 2nd declension)
Et tu, Deus (”And you, O God”)
— Deus (2nd declension) is an exception that takes -us in the vocative.

4th declension nouns ending in -us in the nominative also take -us in the vocative.

You'll have to wait until my "learning Latin" section of my personal "to-do" list reaches the top of the pile. Shouldn't be more than 8-10 years from now (heavy sigh).

I appreciate the instruction, even though I haven't the foggiest clue what it means.

Incidentally, what about 4th declension candidates in the nomination? Where do they take us? (wink, nudge)

Cheers!

Schmidt, Couric, Wallace, Brook, etc. are not good enough to be called bastards. Most bastards are the result of an unplanned birth involving two parents!

But these are self made.

Well worth the time.

If only liberals were that clever? Then again, if they were, they wouldn't be liberals.
