Why I like Sarah Palin
Because what other politician, when criticized for being stupid for saying "North Korea" when she meant "South Korea," without the critics' mentioning that she corrected herself within seconds, not to mention getting it right several other times in the interview...what other politician in the game today would come up with this particular way to make the point that a double standard was in play?
My fellow Americans in all 57 states, the time has changed for come. With our country founded more than 20 centuries ago, we have much to celebrate – from the FBI’s 100 days to the reforms that bring greater inefficiencies to our health care system. We know that countries like Europe are willing to stand with us in our fight to halt the rise of privacy, and Israel is a strong friend of Israel’s. And let’s face it, everybody knows that it makes no sense that you send a kid to the emergency room for a treatable illness like asthma and they end up taking up a hospital bed. It costs, when, if you, they just gave, you gave them treatment early, and they got some treatment, and ah, a breathalyzer, or an inhalator. I mean, not a breathalyzer, ah, I don’t know what the term is in Austrian for that…You don't have to like Palin's politics in order to enjoy the parody. (Of course, you can't be passionately emotionally invested in the idea that Palin is a brainless idiot and/or that Obama is Always The Smartest Guy In The Room; but I assume you, Gentle Reader, are too grown up for such emotional investments.)
Have to say, though, I can't help being disappointed when Palin says ruefully, "I didn’t have enough time to do one for Joe Biden." I think this very much needs to be done. And can you imagine what could be done with Dubya? Needs to happen, folks; needs to happen.
Oh, by the way, credit where credit is due, though: I never said who was the mystery celebrity who gave the following advice.
Any advice for parents of teens? "Look them in the eye and say, 'I love you and there's nothing you can do to make me stop loving you. (pause) So, stop trying!'"It was, of all people, Dubya!!! A genuinely funny and insightful line from the Dubmeister...who knew?
