Put simply, if Palin says « Barack Obama consorts with terrorists », she is making the assertion that he supports acts of violence against American citizens and the media will refute this obviously false assertion. If, instead, Palin says he « pals around with terrorists », she’s used code-switching to mask the seriousness of the charge, obfuscating her meaning enough to get away with making an assertion that inevitably calls for the imprisonment or even assassination of a political opponent.
This clever use of language only hides Palin’s meaning from members of the press.
Anil Dash, What Sarah Palin is saying
Anil Dash décrypte les intentions derrière le langage familier de Sarah Palin. Les passages sur le code switching sont particulièrement incisifs : la dangerosité de cette femme ne vient pas de ses opinions, mais de sa capacité à s’adresser directement à sa base électorale rurale blanche en passant sous le radar de la presse, qui semble ne s’intéresser qu’au langage soutenu…

Stop voting for people you want to have a beer with. Stop voting for folksy. Stop voting for people who remind you of your neighbor. Stop voting for the ideologically intransigent, the staggeringly ignorant, and the blazingly incompetent.
Vote for someone smarter than you. Vote for someone who inspires you. Vote for someone who has not only traveled the world but who has also shown a deep understanding and compassion for it. The stakes are real and they’re terrifyingly high. This election matters. It matters. It really matters. Let me say that one more time. This. Really. Matters.
Michael Seitzman, Sarah Palin naked
This is a woman chosen because of her attractiveness, both physically and ideologically, to a particular type of person. That person is not looking for depth. Not remotely. That person is looking for things that are just plain wrong. Not different, wrong. And one of those things is a padlock on your uterus. Now let’s talk about sexism.

Sur un ton plus léger, un discours commun de Sarah Palin et Hillary Clinton sur le sexisme. Et wow, naked !
