For all the talk of the Democrats being ZOMGZ slaughtered in the midterm elections, the only real sort of gains we saw were in the House. I wouldn’t ride that Republican wave. I wouldn’t even be scurred if it crashed into a small country.
But for those of you people who are living under a rock, there’s this politician called Sarah Palin. She’s from a small town in Alaska, and in the noblest gesture she could devise, she dedicated her life to public service and patronizing people. Simultaneously. This led to a vice presidential nomination, and now a desire to run for president tempered by neither common sense or class — basically, all the ingredients you need for the best media show to ever hit the country. A middle-class powerhouse — a reality TV pitch.
God bless her, though, she’s not too bright. When appearing on Fox News with Geraldine Ferraro, she licked her lips when presented with the possibility that a female president was coming.
I can’t be the only one who wants her to run just so she can set back female politicians by a hundred years. I can’t be. Everything after Sarah Palin will be a Sisyphus-like struggle to push a rock back up a hill that was toppled by a crazy lady. Which admittedly, isn’t good for half the population, but is damn entertaining.
