Sarah, Palin and Tall

I can't WAIT to watch the vice-presidential debate tonight. It's all I can think about.
Thank you, John McCain, for bringing us a comedic character worthy of SNL.

(What? That's not a photo of Sarah Palin?)

You've got a much stronger stomach than I.

Dagny said...

I just sent you a link so that you can play Bingo tonight. The SNL skits have been quite wonderful.

el said...

I am positively aflutter with anticipation!

Zoomie said...

We'll be playing Palin Bingo, too, thanks to Dagny.

cookiecrumb said...

Alecto: But you will watch, yes? Like staring at a train wreck.

Dagny: Fun! Maybe we'll have to cancel the drinking game.

El: Twitch, twitch! (But... what if she's -- good?)

Zoomie: Bonus points if she accidentally says "here in Alaska." Theenks, but no theenks.

I love you. And your post title. It makes me giddy. And thank bejeezus that I wasn't the only one who opened up the Weekly Reader in 3rd grade.

Nik: We need more people like you. Thanks for reading the Weekly Reader. I love you too.
(One hour to go! Eee!)

well, I'll watch the highlights on the news tonight I'm sure. It pays to pay attention to more than your own town/state/country - don't cha know!

Kalyn said...

Also cannot wait! (Is it bad of me to hope she screws up big time?)

Moonbear said...

Oh Sarah, how minny arrrs in infastucshure?
Golly I'm disgusted with you (Sarah) and TV and hell just about ever-thang governmental lately.

cookiecrumb said...

I bailed after an hour and 15 minutes. Arrrgh.
She didn't do badly, but she seemed to think "surge" and "counterinsurgency" are linguistically related.
And she called Joe "Senator Obiden."
Arrrgh.

Some things that I noticed:

-Her accent makes me want to punch her so hard in the ovaries that she can't keep reproducing, which is actually a good thing because I'd hate to see the name/number of chromosomes involved with her next child.
-She absolutely refuses to acknowledge the 'g' on the end of 'ing.' My hand itches to slap her.
-Nucular? Really? After Homer made it famous?
-She's a condescending whore, with her disingenuine smiles and talk-downedness.
-She hates gays. Bigot.

I thought if she winked one more time I would ---- well, I couldn't run up there and break her designer glasses, but that's what I wanted to do. Oh, Joe. He did a statesman's job and I realize how much stress it must have cost him.

Did she ever, ever address a direct question? Does she know what "Achilles heel" means? She obviously thought it means her --strengths.

To bed, to bed. Well, I just might go watch some MSNBC to make me feel I'm not alone. (Thanks, Rachel Maddow.)

Power-hunger shrill caricature parrots speaking points whatever the question. Awwk! Polly is a maverick! Awwk! Drill baby drill! (Since when has it been only East-coasters opposed to drilling in environmentally sensitive areas?)

Choosy Beggar Tina said...

None of my peers and cohorts have much interest in the Canadian elections, but we're watching yours like it's the last episode of Grey's Anatomy. Palin really is one of the few people who is a better charicature of herself than the SNL sketch.

I like to time how long it takes her from when a question is asked until it is repeated because Gawd Fo-bid she'd have substance in any given answer.

@the spiteful chef: "I'd hate to see the name/number of chromosomes involved with her next child."

That's really hurtful. I do wish the world wouldn't "hate to see" kids with DS, maybe it would be a safer place for them.

namastenancy said...

She's been well coached but I couldn't stomach too much of it. At this point, all the Republican "talking points" just raise my hackles. I don't care what they SAY, it's what they've DONE that's the point. What's the line from Shakespeare - "A man may smile and be a villain?"

Greg said...

Gosh darn it!

The Spiteful Chef said...

To Rachel: That's not hurtful at all. My best friend has a sister with Down syndrome and she's a joy. We bake cupcakes together. That said, Sarah Palin elected to have a child past the "safer" age for chromosomal disorders. People with Down syndrome are, for the most part, kind, loving, and innocent people. That doesn't mean they deserve to be saddled with the syndrome, and we know damned well how to cut that risk significantly. So Sarah Palin is a selfish whore. And is it hurtful to say her kids have stupid names? Because if that's wrong, I don't wanna be right.

Speaking of stupid names, if I use the Sarah Palin Baby Name Generator I am Stake Shed Palin! Or Mustache Warthog Palin ...
