let's try to have some fun with this, shall we?

I mean, I think it's time we start cheering for Piglips.
Sarah Palin has added a veteran Republican strategist to serve as chief-of-staff for her political action committee, Sarah PAC, CNN has learned.

Michael Glassner, an attorney and longtime adviser to former Kansas senator and presidential candidate Bob Dole, has signed on to steer the former Alaska governor's political operation as she considers a possible 2012 presidential bid.

During the 2008 presidential campaign, Glassner managed vice presidential operations during John McCain's unsuccessful White House bid.

"We are happy and excited that Mike is joining our team," Sarah PAC Treasurer Tim Crawford told CNN.
NB: I said cheering, not voting, for her. We can't vote for Barackhenaten either. Or, we can vote for whoever we want—I'm voting the straight Christopher Walken ticket—but let's please, please, please not agonize our way through this next presidential election cycle, okay? Let's give ourselves a break, knowing it's all theater and we have no say one way or the other, let us all rejoice in the comedy, even if it is dark, dark black comedy... and this time I pray the only one making a squillion bucks off it will be William Shatner.

Glassner, for his part, is probably the hallmark of Barackhenaten's approval rating among the Supreme Council of Space Lizards. He really has outshone Dubya and Fudd by mega-lumens. This will be his reward, the long-fought battle to run against Sarah Palin. I think there would be several great advantages to her winning... all of them having to do with yanking people's heads out of their asses across the political spectrum... but, uhm, that is extreeeeeemely unlikely to happen. So let us please be light-hearted about it... save our vitriol for the jackasses engaged in the partisan shit-slinging it will entail.

  3. I know! It's truly hysterically funny. I think Vanity Fair was the one to get it in the first place, which kind of makes it even funnier, but this image is really, really good for anyone taking life too seriously. Hardly anything can be happening so wrong this won't make you laugh anyway. I fancy I could be starving to death, or just on my death bed, and this will still make my belly hop up and down with mirth.

  4. I'm sure sarah's the first choice of the teevee networks. A palin candidacy would undoubtedly boost viewership. Not that it matters. The fix is already in. Obama will be reelected.

  5. Precisely. I wanna be wrong really, really badly, but all that blather about Egypt being Obama's Carter/Iran thing makes me so furious I could turn into a cyclone of bile. Sarah will be entertaining as heck, and then she can duke it out with Hillary "Count Olaf" Clinton for President of the World in 2016... assuming Yellowstone keeps us waiting, that is.

  6. Oh, I just tried looking at that picture again and remained calm for at least ten seconds. Then my coffee-flavored hot milk started coming out my nose! :o]

  7. By 2016 she'll be looking too haggard to be a viable GOP candidate
