The lighter side .
. .The Boston Globe
earlier this week quoted an Alaskan resident who announced that, among
her many other accomplishments, Republican vice-presidential nominee Sarah
Palin had once been named Princess of the Fur Rendezvous, which we can only guess means she
had the honor of clubbing the first baby seal of the season.
Now the darker
side . . .The Internet is a
puzzling convoluted place, sometimes presenting ethical dilemmas. For example,
my friend Comrade April out in LA forwarded me a forwarded copy of a quite
telling write-up about Woman for All Seasons and VP nominee Sarah Palin,
written by someone who has known and dealt with her in Wasilla, Alaska.
the text begins with an invitation to share the content followed by an
admonition not to post it on any blogs. Without wanting to mess the author up,
I nevertheless note that the memo is already available online at something
called My Two Buck$.
So it's not really
secret after all. And why should it be? This is a fairly level-headed appraisal
of the woman the GOP wants to put a proverbial heartbeat away. Don't harass its
author, but everyone should read this. Just don't let on who told you.
And back to
a little levity . . .Our loyal West
Coast co-conspirator also sent along this remarkable iconic photo of Ms. Palin,
apparently preparing to shoot liberal swimmers. Is it real? Dunno. Surely it's
a PhotoShop masterpiece. Then again, if you go by Palin's own RNC speech, people
will believe anything.
NOTE: This sort of
photo-phun is fun, but, in general, we in the elite liberal media need to be
careful to attack this pistol-packin' mama on her lack of qualifications, not
her inherent absurdity. Too many of those famous undecided voters apparently
identify with her. And who can blame them? How pathetic do you have to be to call
yourself undecided in this election?
