The woman who almost became Vice President...



Sarah Palin's 2009 calendar has recently become available. I haven't seen the pictures inside, but the cover picture here made me do a double-take - it looks like a parody - as if someone who really really hated Sarah Palin and everything that she stood for decided to do a little Photoshopping. Either that, or the calendar has fallen through a wormhole from an eerie alternative univerise, where there is a nuclear war and Palin ends up presiding over a post-apocalyptic nightmare world.

However, considering Palin's Thanksgiving video - being interviewed in front of a machine that literally killed turkeys, this picture looks pretty restrained. Can you imagine what she'll do for Easter? I suspect it'll involve some sort of cruxifiction tableaux....

The American flag + Palin daffily smiling while carrying a rifle is liable to cause ideology overload no matter what your political views are. Palin makes George W Bush look subtle. It's no surprise that Tina Fey, Palin's impersonator, has won Entertainer of the Year. However, I think the award should have actually gone to Palin herself. She continues to entertain - and horrify, in equal measures.

Why *do* Americans say Two-Thousand Nine instead of Two Thousand and Nine? It doesn't take that long to say the extra word. I get sidewalk and jello and zipper and all that but this one baffles me.

Back to Sarah: perhaps she'll show 'our Jewish friends' that she's in touch with them too by being photographed slaying first borns or dousing doorways in sheep's blood around Passover time. I wouldn't want to be in a 10 mile radius of Palin brandishing a gun.

In a way, her lack of subtlety makes her the most American of them all!
