Pensacola’s favorite former Alaskan governor, Sarah Palin, made headlines again when she attacked President Obama on “Fox News Sunday” when she said zona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) has “the cojones” that President Obama “does not have” to take on illegal immigration.
Palin, who resigned from office to avoid a messy ethics investigation and to pursue big bucks at Fox News and on the speaking circuit, has a flair for attacking Democrats, especially the man who defeated her and John McCain in 2008.
Matt DeLong at the Washington Post recaps the Palin interview. He asserts that “This may be the most high-profile political use of the word “cojones” by an American woman since then-U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Madeleine Albright famously said in 1996 that Cuba’s shooting down of planes flown by anti-Castro exiles was ‘not cojones’ but ‘cowardice.'”
