All Things Sarah

As usual I crashed before Palin’s speech last night so I’ll have to catch it on C-span today.

Did you watch her last night? What did you think?

A Soap Opera

You have to admit with all the characters in the Palin family it has everything for the making of a soap opera. The in-laws are feuding. Palin herself is some macho, moose hunting, hockey mom who according to Fred Thompson, can field dress a moose once she’s brought it to the end of its life. We have the newest character, Levi. It’s just too good to be left alone. So let’s give this a try. Got any good ideas for the title of this, you just can’t make this stuff up, soap?

"All my Alaskas"

"Another GOP World"

"Days of Our Sarah"

"As the Stomach Turns"
(oops that one was taken).

Do you suppose the story will go something like this? Bristol walks into the house. Upon seeing Levi with his bottle of Captain Morgan and hockey stick, she hears the dreaded organ music and then dumps the baby into the umbrella stand?

(oops, just like the Republican party, when you have nothing to offer you just steal an old plot line - even one from the Carol Burnett Show)

You missed Giuliani and Palin mocking not only the idea of community organizing, but also every single member of humanity who ever benefited from it, and along with those members of humanity, she derided and belittled those who could have fixed their asbestos and inoperable plumbing and vermin infested firetraps had they been taught by someone who gave a shit how to organize themselves and make their landlords accountable.

At least Giuliani didn't sound like a bitchy mean-girl cheerleader when he spoke. I'd rather listen to a smug, idiot, jock speak than a bitchy mean-girl cheerleader, any day.

Our big news yesterday was a Catholic priest walking into our campaign office asking to speak to someone on right to life issues. He proceeded to outline nine issues centered on right to life, explained that Obama beats McCain on eight of those nine, and offered to go to work for us persuading Catholics, door-to-door, on the phone, one at a time, to vote for Obama.

I was floored.

Landlords like Obamessiah's BFF Tony Rezko?

"From Here to Insanity"

"Screw America"

I was up at the time it was on, but I didn't watch. I heard enough about it on NPR this morning to be annoyed. If I had watched it last night I would have been PISSED. I don't like her sarcastic BS, I don't like the fact that she apparently doesn't like other women and I think Bristol is a lovely poster child for how abstinence only birth control does not work. And I agree with Zilla above on the bitchy mean girl cheerleader thing.

I think McCain shot himself on the foot with this one.

Given that the Enquirer is saying Sarah cheated on Todd with his business partner a while back, today I went with

"Governor of Alaska or Whore of Babylon?"

Just sayin'.

Since they are really into the persecution and victimization of Ste. Sarah:

"What's the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull?" she points to her face, "The lipstick".

Do not underestimate this woman. And do not underestimate the affect her mom-ness with real mom problems will have in the Heartland and the swing states.

The facts of her abilities or lack of abilities lose out to the image she is projecting.

I found her speech to be just another pol doing what they do. Energizing their base with non relevant slams aimed at the other side. All talk, no substance.

But that does not mean she won't give a boost to the McCain campaign. This not the time to be smug or complacent. It is now a real dog fight. Pardon me for the dog thing, but well, Sarah started it.

The denigrating remarks about community organizing did piss me off also.

Hey, in the world of the 5-mil per year middle class, they don't NEED community organizers!

I vote for As the Moose Turns as well, and the theme moosic (sorry) will be moose mating calls. So haunting!

Wise words, mrmacrum. Complacency is exactly the wrong approach, on several levels.

Not sure of a title, but I do have a suggestion for the actress to play the lead role.

Though its really more of a reprise.

Not a soap opera, but I'm hoping this turns out to be a Fatal Distraction for the Repugs.

They may get a bump from her, but she sure brings a bad smell with her political history.

Oh, and watch Ike. That one looks bad.

I couldn't bear to watch it. I'd seen more than enough with the switcheroo from "No horny teens will breed in MY administration!" to "Aw, lookit the cute baby and five-months-gone girlie. Lookit her fine 'f**kin' redneck' boyfriend cleaned up for the cameras!"

My husband stomached about two minutes of Palin's speech, then blanched and turned green...
