Really…..wait, really?

November 2nd, 2008

I just saw this and didn’t exactly believe it. But then, dentist it wasn’t so overly funny as to be obviously fake, phimosis so I was confused. Then I saw this article from the BBC, web and they say it’s real. So I think it is.

Personally, I think a joint hunting trip with Palin and Sarkozy would be a fascinating cross-cultural experience for both parties. You could also take the opportunity to make some jokes about the French demeanor, perhaps working in a joke about French military victories. (I know, I know “did you mean ‘French military defeats?’” hahaha I get it because no one else would ever use “I’m feeling lucky” except for those Google jokes. Humor!)

Don’t forget to vote if you haven’t already…..we’re almost there! I don’t know if I’m more excited about the real possibility of an Obama win or for this whole thing just being OVER. But the end of the candidates’ SNL spots and the genius of Tina Fey’s Palin does give me a bit of pause…….

Oh, and if you’ll forgive me my flights of fancy, I’m thinking of returning to an unfortunate habit…..yes the LOLs. Look, people didn’t replace the first letter of my last name with L as a joke to make my initials RL. (and if you don’t know my last name, I’ll give you a hint: it’s not Amfao. But that would be funny. Think about it……..)

The Maps for USAicans Initiative

Look, I appreciate the many youtube mashups of Palin and Miss Teen SC as much as the next guy, and not just because it allows me to think of Palin and beauty pageants without feeling like a total sexist. I think that Palin and that poor girl aren’t stupid, and I’m sure they can both find the US on a map. I also believe that people they look up to thrust them both into a much bigger spotlight then they imagined and expected them to perform flawlessly. (can’t you picture the screaming stage mothers/campaign workers in the audience with handmade signs?)

I’m not voting for McCain/Palin, but I have complete faith in her abilities to perform half of her constitutional duties (I’m completely sure that she is capable of breaking a tie). And in yet another completely non-sexist thought, might I dust off the old chestnut of “serving at the pleasure of the president?” (it’s much more palatable to imagine her saying that than Gonzalez……::shudder::)

But now for the above video: in my mind this would be way funnier as a mashup because as much as I can imagine Palin calling for more maps in South Africa, or whatever, I cannot picture her laughing at herself like this. (or appearing in a Weezer video) So say what you will, but in the end it’s all fun and games and it really is unfair to compare a teenage beauty queen to our next VP. Because seriously, Biden in a tiara? No thanks.

Oh, and not to be outdone, Biden has made some gaffs too. But because he’s a man (I guess) they’re more apt to give him a little nickname.

p.s. Caitlin attends APPALACHIAN STATE UNIVERSITY, which I’ve enjoyed for years. My head just exploded with this unprecedented coincidence.
