Sarah, that really cool girl from Alaska...

Sarah, that really cool girl from Alaska who is, like, so funny, was on tonight again.

I thought we were gonna be cracking up laughing about Russia and the health care plan for the economy and keeping all the jobs and the international stuff and all kindsa talk but, sheesh,

her old man was with her.
Damn! She'll never get out alone again!

Oh, but next time she's out with Joe Biden alone!
(unless her old man decides she still needs a chaperone!!)

Head of Skate!

Be sure you listen for the son's name as she responds to the request to be Vice President!

Too funny!

Random thoughts

A very wise friend and co-worker was once asking me about someone I worked with. I was having a great amount of difficulty describing this obviously intelligent, educated and kind-of-experienced person who was a dismal failure at the job. My friend said

"She's one of the scariest kinds!
She doesn't know what she doesn't know."

I can't think of a better application of that description than with Sarah Palin. And that is why she's dangerous.
* She isn't curious about the world (Never been out of the US until a year or so ago?)

* She isn't interested in divergent thought or opinion (She called anyone who disagreed with her in Alaska, even her supporters "Haters")

* She's willing to take her lumps because of it. (Speak to her daughter)

But should we have to suffer along with her? She may have opposed the Bridge to Nowhere after she supported it and accepted the money for it but should we have to join her on another bridge to nowhere?

Dr. K has got to be thinking "She's got A+ legs and a D- intellect!"

Sexist? No, honest. I love strong women! (see below)
We all use our looks to the best of our abilities (That shy grin, the innocent eyes, the conspiratorial smirk, whatever..) so there's nothing sexist about being called on it when we do.

Next thought:
While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75-year old Texas rancher whose
hand was caught in a gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a
conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to Sarah
Palin and her bid to be a heartbeat away from being President.

The old rancher said, 'Well, ya know, Palin is a post turtle.' Not being
familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what a post turtle was.

The old rancher said, 'When you're driving down a country road and you
come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a post

The old rancher saw a puzzled look on the doctor's face, so he continued
to explain. 'You know she didn't get up there by herself, she doesn't
belong up there, she doesn't know what to do while she is up there, and
you just wonder what kind of dumb ass put her up there to begin with.

Next thought:
My mom's new hip!

No, not that hip!

The other one Yes! She fell and broke the other one on Saturday night. She's doing fine, surgery was the same as last time only reversed. She's feeling well enough to complain! You gotta love a SMART strong woman!

And a small request to my devoted and wonderful brother who works his way through these trials and tribulations without complaint:
Start a post surgical update with the words:
"It's all over..."

"It's all over..."

A Picture = Lotsa Words...

I was speechless when I saw this picture...

Thoughts and conjectures were flying through my brain...

They were so unfair, so untrue and so downright unAmerican...

AND perfect to post during the Republican Convention! The party that encourages
Swiftboating, talk of McCain's nonexistent illegitimate black baby, Ann Richards' untrue lesbianism, Valerie Plame's real and confidential CIA status and Karl Roves' performance of "I'm just a Girl who Can't Say No" as Karla Rovingeye at the Monday night Drop In Drag Karaoke in St. Paul...

So here are what might be a few good captions...

"My freakin' sister...I My freaking mother AND my freakin' sister don't know how to use a condom but I get left holding the damn baby!""Honey, when the school nurse says who needs some condoms,
just do this!"

Be afraid! Be very afraid!

"No, he can't have a beer in the limo but get some condoms for the older two and a security guard for the younger one!"

and finally...
"Hell! I know they can't get a tan in Alaska like I do in Phoenix! The local WalMart's gotta sell some knee-his for these bumpkins!"


"Look, Alaska Girl, Michelle can get away with no stockings
and I can get away with no stockings
but you ain't us!"
