Fitness book author and former Alaska governor Sarah Palin took to Facebook today to decry President Obama's response to the Benghazi consulate attack: "The White House and State Department knew that an Islamic terrorist group with ties to al Qaeda claimed credit for the attack. ... Why the lies? Why the cover up? ... President Obama's shuck and jive shtick with these Benghazi lies must end." Maybe Palin was just looking for something that roughly rhymed with "lies" — but we're guessing she was entirely aware of the racist overtones of the phrase "shuck and jive" and was quite content to invoke them. Or maybe she's just going after Alaska's Jewish vote with "shtick." In that case: l'chaim! [Source]
