I thought all you guys were wiped out years ago.From "Alice in Wonderland" (movie) 1951
The dark shadow of Sarah Palin is trying very hard to cast a gloom over America. But most of us are ignoring it - Democrats and Republicans alike.
And after all, many of us have seen it all before.
I'm not talking about the likes of Margaret Thatcher, Joh Bjelke-Petersen or Queen Guinevere. These people had a grip on reality. I'm talking about the odd-ball who surfaces from time to time, in the political arena of the lunatic fringe.
And what did she want "explained"? One never knew. I fancy it was elementary arithmetic. Or how to spell "I can see Tasmania from my bedroom."
Watch Sarah morph into Pauline.
Unlike Sarah, Pauline Hanson did not have the good looks that attract the non-thinking, non-scoring men of America, of the world even. But it didn't matter. She could sock it to 'em. She had guts. And who needs to read anyway?
The common touch. Appealing to the people who could least afford her.
Palin: the woman who makes George W look like the reformer, no - the intellectual - of the decade.
But not to worry. If she does get in to any form of legislature, Americans and non-citizens alike, will leave the country in droves. And what will that mean for the world's stability? I remember a joke along the lines of, "What happens when Australians move to the USA?" "The IQ goes up on both sides of the Pacific."
Try as I might I can't think of how to relate this to the hopefully-it-will-never-occur-exodus-from-Palin. Let's hope it never happens. Well, I KNOW it will never happen. I have faith in humanity. The only thing good about Sarah Palin is her eye-glasses. And I've gone off them, as well.
And what of the Palin supporters? In the words of Gordon Ramsay, "Forgive them father for they have sinned."
Except we will not forgive them.
Lest we forget.
