I poached the image to the right from Rocky Beach. The hosts of Rocky Beach, a small coastal community of contrary and classic Maine grumpy gusses, have a way with words. They very seldom use them. Yet they make their point. I laughed hard when I saw this.
All the spin and news both true and false, has been swirling around now for a couple of days. Since Sarah Palin is unknown to most of us, it will take some time to deconstruct the "truth" each side puts out there for us to swallow. As the "truth" gathers momentum, different juicy pearls get spit out.
My favorite is -
Palin's 5th child - Trig (either named after a discipline of Math, Roy Rodger's dead horse, or given her rugged last frontier Alaskan manhood, named for the trigger on her favorite Moose killin rifle) Anyway, someone is claiming the comely governor of Alaska did not have the child. Trig is actually the result of a tryst her 16 year old daughter had. Mom is protecting her virtue by stepping up and calling Trig one of her own. I wonder if this story will grow legs. Damn, I hope so. Not because I wish any ill will to the governor. I am just looking for cheap entertainment. Watching politicians squirm is some of the best cheap entertainment out there. And forgive me if I have no sympathy for her. I have no sympathy for any of them. If you want to play with the big dogs, you have to learn to piss in the tall grass.
