"You'll be there to defend the innocents from the enemies who planned and carried out and rejoiced in the deaths of thousands of Americans." - Sarah Palin, linking the Iraq war to the 9/11 attacks while addressing U.S. soldiers departing for Iraq - Fairbanks, Alaska, Sept. 11, 2008.
I scoured the net for some good jokes about Sarah Palin but none really caught my eye. Instead, I give you the hilarious names of her children - Track, Bristol, Willow, Piper and Trig. For Christ's sake - if McCain got elected and then died - would we really want the stand-in leader of the free world to be a gun-toting, Bible-bashing, untravelled and bespectacled pseudo-librarian who dared to give her kids such ridiculous names? The woman is scary in her falseness, scary in her pretend old-fashioned values, scary in her pretend morality, scary in her attitude to the natural world, scary in her incredibly limited grasp of world affairs, scary in her practised and insincere use of the English language and scary in her overt exploitation of her femininity. I hope with all my heart that the American people do the right thing and pick Obama. Homing in on Halibut? No way!
