(UPDATE 4 September 2008: Obviously Sarah didn’t go through school named Palin! I was half-asleep when I wrote it. Sincerest apologies.)
I knew there was something else: Palin and the Alaska Legislature interfered with this week’s referendum on once again trying to ban aerial hunting except in a biological emergency, by sponsoring anti-referendum publicity with taxpayer dollars. A referendum which outside hunting enthusiasts also spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to defeat. State biologists themselves broke Alaska law by killing wolf mothers and pups in their dens, and covered it up!
“Hockey mom,” or “rifle-in-a-chopper mom”?!!! Sportswoman?: Where’s the sport in that?!!! I’d say it’s like shooting fish in a barrel, but Mythbusters proved it’s actually easier than that!
This reinforces something I realized a couple hours ago: Palin is giving McCain’s adoring media another chance to dust off his false “maverick” image, by painting her as one too … that’s what he sees in her. That’s desperate. But what Senator Bob Casey Jr. at America’s Convention this week said of the one seems to hold true for the other as well: “That’s not a maverick, that’s a sidekick!” Or as Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell said of McCain, the only green in their platform is the money for Big Oil, and the only recycling they’ll be doing will be of W.’s failed energy policies!
Looks like Little Miss Wonderful is crashing and burning, and it’s just been 24 hours! John, there’s still time for a not-too-ungraceful exit!
I print this at some risk to my own name, and Todd probably got this all through school, but I can’t resist:
