Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?

My cascade of reactions when I learned that she whose name I dare not speak recently compared herself to Shakespeare:

  1. Laughed: “AhahahahAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAhahaaaaa…”
  2. Thought of that quote about learning the rules before you break them.
  3. Wondered if Schmalin has ever read anything by Shakespeare.
  4. Tried not to entertain notions of what “wee wee’d up” might mean.
  5. Sobbed, hiccuped, threw up a little in my mouth.

  1. 1. and 5. are exact descriptions of the wild freight train of shock that roared through my psyche after learning of her latest ‘gaffe’. Can we please refudiate her person? Dumb just doesn’t do justice in describing the void that is her brain.

    Please, really, how is she still relevant? I just don’t understand.

  2. Ugh. I know.

    I think the fact that she’s still in the news at all is just a testament to how fucked the GOP is right now.

    That’s all I’ve got.

  3. According to Slate she has used this word twice in the last week.

    I think the central point that she is missing in her Will-Sarah comparison is that her word is stupid.

    • And an accident.
      She’s not being clever. She’s just butchering the English language and then being so big-headed that she somehow convinces herself that her inability to speak is one of her positive attributes.

      A pox on her house!

  4. You know, I’m not 100% convinced this was an accident since she did it twice.

    • Clarification–
      I think she meant to say “refudiate,” but I don’t think she meant to invent a “new” word.

      Sort of like George W. and the whole “nuke-u-lar” thing.

  5. All I know is that were I to encounter her on the street, I would A. slap her silly and B. shove a Dictionary, The Riverside Shakespeare, and a Rorschach test into her Trig filled hands.

    Loathe her.

  6. A pox on her house indeed.

  7. Likely, but also something like this:

    Bummer. Drink some yummy tea after that disturbing pic. Chamomile? Peppermint? I say Jasmine or even Cardamom.

  8. Shame what passes for clever these days, but as long as she thinks she’s clever we’ll have a humorous repository for a few years. I’d love to see Mark Twain get a hold of this (well, in spite of his being a rotting corpse and all).

    The #shakespalin tag on Twitter is replete with fantabulous stuff.

  9. It doesn’t matter what she says or does, she will remain relevant in the political scene… at least until she packs on 10 or 20 pounds and her boobs start sagging.
