oh yes, now i'm totally sure she's qualified to be a 72-year-old's heartbeat away from the oval office.

OMG, I couldn't even watch the whole thing. She kept getting cross-eyed...

I thought you liberal people like arty people?

This doesn't scare me as much as the stuff from the church she goes to where people were getting messages from god through their cellphones (I am NOT making this up). Don't make me send you links. This new material is way scarier than the old beauty queen stuff.

The interview with Katie Couric where she talks about all of the newspapers she reads:

"I've read most of them, again with a great appreciation for the press, for the media," she said at first. Couric responded, "What, specifically?"

"Um, all of them, any of them that have been in front of me all these years."

"Can you name a few?"

"I have a vast variety of source where we get our news," Palin said. "Alaska isn't a foreign country, where it's kind of suggested, 'wow, how could you keep in touch with what the rest of Washington, D.C., may be thinking when you live up there in Alaska?' Believe me, Alaska is like a microcosm of America."

Oh, I forgot. She was a journalism major, but I'm not sure in which of the five colleges she attended that degree is from.

amanda--my sister and i totally laughed over that one too.

eilandkind--do you really think that was art?

tangobaby--i saw the journalism thing, but even worse was how she told katie that she's a feminist because she hunts and fishes and fills her freezer with game to feed her family! astonishing!

This is like the longest nightmare ever.

I watched this about 75 times last night and rolled over and nearly died with pleasure. Then I watched SP in the swimsuit competition because I am THAT MUCH of a bitch.

tangobaby said...

P, I know gay men that can walk better in heels than she can, and I bet you do, too!

julochka said...

dahlings, i know gay WOMEN who can walk better in heels than she can. :-) because i too watched the swimsuit video. just didn't have the heart to post it.

Magpie said...

Oh my god. She's cross-eyed and she's got the worst embouchure I've ever seen. Dreadful. But thank you for sharing it.

Eilandkind said...

No, I didn't really like the performance, but I am tolerant of all people and love people from different cultures and try to see the good in everything.

Eilandkind said...

and I don't think it is good to try and belittle people, especially other women...

julochka said...

eilandkind--it's totally admirable to be tolerant. and i too think that women are too hard on other women. however, in this situation, she has placed herself in the spotlight and under public scrutiny, so she'd better be prepared to take a bit of ridicule for playing the flute cross-eyed. :-)
