The Lemmings are Coming!

At first I wasn’t going to write this article. But the material begs to be shared. I can't help myself. So if you admire Sarah Palin, stop here. Go to the Index and pick a topic you haven't read on this blog.

What fired me up is this continuing babble about what a wonderful person she is, while overlooking her lack of character and an anemic resume! She quit her job as Governor of Alaska, after serving only 1 year and 10 months. For gawds sake, she barely dipped her toes in the water. In no way does that count for a damn thing!

She recently stopped over in the Tri-Cities area of southeastern Washington; Richland-Kennewick-Pasco. Richland probably being the most recognizable name to my readers around the world as being the location where bomb grade plutonium was refined that ended WW II.

Her husband Todd is not with her, deciding it would be more stimulating to stay home and repair the family roof. Great timing. Lets fix the roof at Thanksgiving. I think it was a convenient excuse on his part not to be seen with her.

Anyway, as part of her Sarah Doll presence, she entered the local Red Cross “Turkey Trot.” (“Turkey Trot!” Get it? This is like shooting fish in a barrel!) A large crowd had gathered at the finish line to get autographs and a giggle fix. But she never finished the race! She peeled off before getting to the finish line to go to her turkey dinner!

Sarah – being Sarah – had a convenient explanation. She didn’t want to create a crowd control problem for law enforcement. Since when did a politician want to avoid a crowd? The Lemmings, being Lemmings, were very forgiving and understanding of her. “She is one of us” proclaimed one of her glassy-eyed supporters.

Much has been said about the Lemmings queuing up to get their books autographed. I would venture to speculate that fully 30% of those waiting to get the book signed are not there for Sarah, but plan on making a mint off that book when they put it on eBay!

I haven’t read the book (got to fix my roof) so I can't comment on the contents. But Craig Medred at the Alaska Dispatch did read the book and offers these observations. As you read them, remember, Sarah loves to admonish the Media to “tell the truth…”

If you intend to buy her book, make sure you get the “right” one!

In my last sound off, I asked if you had looked up the word “rogue” in the Merriam-Webster on line dictionary. Which definition did you decide best describes her? Number one? Or number two?

The Lemmings gave us King George (Bush.) And now they are anxious to offer us Queen Sarah.

An American Nightmare indeed. Hopefully this will all be something we laugh about 10 years from now.
