The wrong Palin!

Via Counterpunch, a case that Sarah is the wrong Palin to send to Washington.

    Yes, but can he field dress a moose?

    Isn’t there a moose in the background when he sings “I’m a lumberjack”? And he does have an ax…

    OK how about an M. Palin-Ike-Al-Pedro ticket? THAT would get my vote. Only because I know you aren’t going to accept a nomination, and neither will our hippie friend Teri.

    Sounds like a winner. Getting back to that “I like Ike!” commercial, don’t you wish they still had campaign ads like that? Cute, upbeat, content-free, and fun. It might be better than that if they advertised workable solutions to real problems, but since they obviously are not going to offer any of those, why not at least be sweet and happy?

    Exactly. Instead of lies ad nauseum, how about a happy song?

    That is a happy song! Here’s another one, by Phranc, the all-American Jewish lesbian folksinger. You say Pete Shelley makes you wish you were/ think you might be a gay man. Phranc makes me wish I were/ think I might be an all-American Jewish lesbian folksinger. The video of this song on youtube is apparently a tribute to some center someplace serving people with disabilities, it’s a good fit.

    Nice song!

    You know I have to put up a k.d. lang video now, right?

    Almost makes me wish I were a gay woman, et cetera . .

    I remember that song! I’d never seen the video- the way she uses her hands looks like a formal lecture. It’s an interesting contrast with the lyrics (a lecture about riding tall in the saddle? delivered by someone in a red velvet suit?)

    Makes me wonder how you use your hands during your lectures!

    See, I have a different interpretation of lang in the video. The way she uses her hands, her facial expressions, her entire body, illustrates her strength, tenderness, and vulnerability in relation to her lover. “Trying to remain tall in the saddle” is trying to remain resolute and centered in the midst of a passionate whirlwind love affair. The Red Velvet Suit- she wants to impress her lover! So much of her personality comes out in this masterpiece. Simply enthralling . .
