Palin accuses president of ‘shuck and jive’ on Libya
Like many conservative pundits, Sarah Palin is criticizing President Obama for his administration’s inconsistent statements on the Benghazi, Libya, attack. Unlike many conservative pundits, Palin used the term “shuck and jive” to describe Obama’s behavior.
In a Facebook post today, Palin wrote: “Obama’s Shuck and Jive Ends With Benghazi Lies.” She also used the term in the text of the post, which concludes, “President Obama’s shuck and jive shtick with these Benghazi lies must end.”
The phrase “shuck and jive” popped up in the last presidential election cycle too, when New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo said, “You can’t shuck and jive at a press conference. All those moves you can make with the press don’t work when you’re in someone’s living room.” At the time, Cuomo was supporting Hillary Rodham Clinton in her primary race against Barack Obama and others.
CNN commentator Roland Martin responded by issuing a tutorial on the racially loaded nature of those words:
“Shucking and jiving” have long been words used as a negative assessment of African Americans, along the lines of a “foot shufflin’ Negro.” In fact, I don’t recall ever hearing the phrase used in reference to anyone white.
According to a story in Newsday, “The 1994 book ‘Juba to Jive, a Dictionary of African-American Slang,’ says ‘shuck and jive’ dates back to the 1870s and was an ‘originally southern ‘Negro’ expression for clowning, lying, pretense.’”
More on the etymology: “[B]lack slaves sang and shouted gleefully during corn-shucking season, and this behavior, along with lying and teasing, became a part of the protective and evasive behavior normally adopted towards white people in ‘traditional’ race relations.”
Palin is a contributor to Fox News, and I’ve asked the channel if it has any issue with Palin’s choice of language.
Still no comment on Ann Coulter's use of the word "retard" Miss Palin?
Whatever, Palin is the least of the crazies right now. And that's terrifying.
Hey Sarah, remember when Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney illegally supported your run for governor of Alaska when he was the President of the Republican Governor's Association by secretly paying for your campaign ads? Or are you going to "shuck and jive" your way out of that issue?
Sarah Palin has very limited intellect, especially for someone who could have been Vice President, was a governor and now a babbling head for Fox. I have to believe Fox recognizes her dwindling followers and is just waiting for her contract to expire. She's soooo fucking topical.
Sarah, is he also engaged in a "step'n'fetch" on Syria?
They just can't fuckin' deal with the fact that their black unAmerican president has gotten both Qadaffi and Bin Laden, is by all accounts a great husband and father, saved the American auto industry.
Doubt she'd refer to Romney as "Shucking and Jiving"..yeah right, just after mentioning Romney's fetish for fried chicken and watermelon. Racist jerk.
Isn't Todd Palin Native American? Let's make a list of the stereotypes and send it to his "injun-lover"* wife.
*I am not a racist, this term was added for effect.
There were always rumors she was racist, this confirms it for me. I've never heard that term used except by racists. It's shocking that you'd hear it at all from a public figure in this day and age. Either she's too dumb to know it exposes her as a racist, or she's intentionally trying to be an Ann Coulter-type provocateur. Beats working for a living.
Sarah, where do you get you world view? What do you read? No, I mean, what specifically?
Sarah's doing what she can do best: Famewhoring by throwing dirt in the direction of others who usually go 'I do not know this woman! Is she crazy, or what?'.
And yet, Sarah still cant point to Syria on a map.
Has there ever been an instance where a right-winger used that phrase to describe a *white* politician?
Of course, that was a not-so-subtle racist dogwhistle, but Jay Carney said "shuck and jive" at a briefing last year and the freeps ran with it. If Palin's cuntery gets any traction, they'll surely throw his gaffe back in our faces.
note to Sarah Palin: Youre Irrelevant
Racist but she slobbed on Black Baller dick in college. #fact
"Shuck and jive" seems more than a dog whistle. It seems downright overt. Palin is a RETARD, and so is her entire fucking family. Except for the retarded one, he's nice as pie. :)
Yep, Carney said it in reference to himself when he mixed up his notes. Not the same context, but it generated a lot of faux RW outrage.
Don't want to post a freeper link, BTW.
Stupid Palin -- Obama doesn't have a black bone in his body. He couldn't shuck and jive even if he tried.
I'm sick of this woman's coon hollering.
Shuckin' and jivin'! Hootin' and hollerin'! Bumpin' and grindin'! You know what those people get up to -- ha ha, I mean get down!
Doesn't she have a diet and exercise book to work on?

And you, R19, sicken me and most of the civilized world. Take a speedy trip to Hell.
neither shuckin' nor jivin'
It was reported that when Obama won the nomination over Hilary Clinton, Palin's response was "So Sambo won!"
Palin is totally irrelevant now. Who the fuck cares what this bitch has to say?//////
Hear Hear, R24! AbsoLUTEly irrelevant. This foul whore's only outlet is Fox News. No other organization gives her mention, let alone air time. I'm just hoping that she will someday just go the fuck away. She has nothing to offer but platitudes, bumper stickers, and thoughts stolen from others of her ilk. Zero original thought. She's intellectually lazy, but a conniving, paranoid, and vindictive creature. She's mean smart, and that's how she got to where she is. Just the worst kind of person.
23 it was "So Sambo beat the bitch." She's worthless. I heard she's not especially loving to any of her kids but especially poor Trig.
The ol' wise sage Sarah Palin is still a Fox News contributor. She was spewing her words of wisdom to the punk douchebag Sean Hannity the other night following the foreign policy debate--you know, the one where Obama kicked Romney's ass.
Of course, Sarah and Sean declared Romney the winner, far and away.
Doesn't anyone around her have the balls to just say "Bitch, you ain't a poet! Your pithy bitchy, oh so cutesy tripe is tiresome. Now shut the fuck up and go bake some motherfucking cookies."
Can we stop giving this snatch attention so she can disappear?
Sarah Palin couldnt find Libya on a map
Her boss at Faux, Roger Ailes, just renewed his contract for another four years and he's sick to death of the rancid Alaskan cunt.
He said he only hired her because she was "hot" and brought in ratings. She's not bringing in the ratings anymore. They cut her from the convention coverage and her contract is probably not going to be renewed.
I want her to spend the rest of her life giving cut-rate tours of Wasilla to fuckwitted freepers.

She couldn't even find Libya on a map of Libya.
As a right-thinking conservative, she thinks they call it 'Libya' because that's where all ya Libs come from.
Yeah - r23 and 26 - I remember that so clearly. I hated not having a printer so that I could prove it to my coworkers. Disgusting.
Sarah Palin, Ann Coulter, etc... The ideal Republican woman: attractive, uninformed, and willing to say anything.

Oh dear. Poster replacing racism with misogyny alert.
It's statements like this that show how badly "SNL" needs Tina Fey back. She has never done anything as flawless as her Palin imitation.
What a racist cunt
The only reason I would doubt Palin would say that is because I doubt that dumb bitch would know who Sambo was.
Palin is a fucking idiot but Michael Tyson, excuse me PROFESSOR Tyson, is just as ridicuous. Apparently, he has never met a white person who isn't a racist. Both he and Jesse Jackson, Jr. led the charge that Bil Clinton was playing the race card in the 2008 primary battle against Obama. This was an outright lie but many AA believed it and turned against the Clintons.I will never forgive them for it. I hope he winds up like Jackson. In the booby hatch with the rest of the paranoiacs.
I think his name is Dyson, not Tyson.
While he's an obnoxious douchebag who seems to think that responding like a thesaurus makes him a deep thinker and prolific, you can't deny that Clinton did make some pretty tasteless comments in 2008.
