Sarah Palin vs Bridgitte Bardot

Did you catch the debate with VP Candidate Sarah Palin and film legend turned activist, Bridgitte Bardot? In case you missed it........

BRIDGITTE: I hope you lose these elections because that would be a victory for the world.

SARAH: (1) Say it ain't so, Bridge, there you go again pointing backwards. You preferenced [sic] your whole comment with reference to the Bush administration. Now doggone it, let's look ahead and tell Americans what we have to plan to for them in the future.

BRIDGITTE: By denying the responsibility of man in global warming, by advocating gun rights and making statements that are disconcertingly stupid, you are a disgrace to women and you alone represent a terrible threat, a true environmental catastrophe.

SARAH: (2) I’m not an Al Gore, doom-and-gloom environmentalist blaming the changes in our climate on human activity. (3) We believe that the Service's (i.e. Dept. of Interior's) decision to list the polar bear was not based on the best scientific and commercial data available. (3) There is no "aerial hunting" of wolves in Alaska.Our science-driven and abundance-based predator management program involves volunteers who are permitted to use aircraft to kill some predators where we are trying to increase opportunities for Alaskans to put healthy food on their families' dinner tables. It is not hunting.

BRIDGITTE: This shows your total lack of responsibility, your inability to protect or simply respect animal life.

SARAH: (1) Senator McCain chose me because of my connection to the heartland of America. Being a mom, one very concerned about a son in the war, about a special needs child, about kids heading off to college, how are we going to pay those tuition bills? (4) And, besides I'm a Hockey Mom. Do you know the difference between Hockey Moms and Pit Bulls…. Lipstick.

BRIDGETTE: Ms. Palin I implore you not to compare yourself to dogs. I know them well and I can assure you that no pit-bull, no dog, nor any other animal for that matter is as dangerous as you are.

If I may rephrase Bardot's words, without changing her meaning, but relating it to another famous quote from another VP election some years ago.....

"Sarah, I know pit bulls. I have a pit bull. I love pit bulls. And YOU Sarah Palin are NO Pit Bull!"

In deference to full disclosure, this debate, per se, never took place, but it could have. I have taken actual quotes from both of the principal characters and though they are out of their specific context, they are in the context of the subject matter about which they are speaking. In other words, the essence is true, even if some of the words have been transposed or changed to fit the context of the debate.

Brigitte Bardot Quotes are borrowed from The Huttington Post, October 14, 2008.

Sarah Palin's Quotes are taken from (1) VP Debate October 2, 2008 and (2) Interview with Charlie Gibson and (3) On The Issues
and (4) The Republican Convention on September 3, 2008 and other times and places too numerous to mention
