Steampunk Palin

I’m sure there are words, but I can’t seem to find them.

Question to all the comic book lovers in my life: Are you familiar with these artists? Is it possible that they’re kidding? I mean, they’re kidding, right?


Points to Patty O’Toole for the assist.


Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?

My cascade of reactions when I learned that she whose name I dare not speak recently compared herself to Shakespeare:

  1. Laughed: “AhahahahAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAhahaaaaa…”
  2. Thought of that quote about learning the rules before you break them.
  3. Wondered if Schmalin has ever read anything by Shakespeare.
  4. Tried not to entertain notions of what “wee wee’d up” might mean.
  5. Sobbed, hiccuped, threw up a little in my mouth.

Train Wreck Series Returns!

Hey, kids!

The series that brought you Miss South Carolina’s bumbling attempts to discuss foreign policy and Britney Spears’ drunk performance at the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards is back, this time with Sarah Palin, the former Republican vice presidential nominee.

I have tried really, really hard to ignore Sarah Palin since the election ended and the immediate threat of her holding national office subsided, but today I have to make an exception because 1) she resigned from her post as governor of Alaska a full year and a half before the end of her term, and 2) she sounded completely bat shit crazy while she was doing it.

Go ahead. Watch it. You know you want to.

makeover time!

“What?!” says Palin. “I don’t get to keep them?”

See the resemblance?



Just sayin’.

talking experience

In light of Rudy G’s recent assertions that Obama is the least experienced presidential nominee in the past century, I wanted to share a Huffington Post article from last month that compared Obama’s political experience leading up to his presidential nomination with that of our other presidents from the past 100 years…

The results?

Obama ends up smack in the middle of past century’s 17 presidents on the political-experience-o-meter, taking into account work as an elected official on the state level or higher. (He tied with Harding.) Some of the folks that fall behind him on the scale:

Ronald Reagan

Jimmy Carter

Harry Truman

Woodrow Wilson

Dwight Eisenhower

Herbert Hoover

William Taft

…and, of course, Georgie W.B.!

(a sidenote: none of the above had quite as sparse a resume as Sarah Palin. Just sayin’.)

babies and bathwater

So, by now, y’all have heard that VP nominee Sarah Palin’s 17-year-old daughter is pregnant.

While I respect the classiness and tact of Senator Obama’s strident assertions that this bit of news has no place in the campaign, I also have to say that I disagree for this reason: Palin’s press statement frames her daughter’s decision to keep her child and marry the father as just that–her decision.

Meanwhile, Palin herself is anti-choice in all situations (including rape and incest, the two areas that generally give all but the most rabid anti-abortionists some pause) while actively promoting abstinence-only education.

You aren’t allowed to extol the virtues of a “choice” that would no longer exist were you to run the show.
