Sarah Palin redux
I thought I was done with Sarah Palin (other than obsessively reading about her, First Dude, the popularity of her eyeglasses and the old wrinkly guy campaigning with her) but I was wrong. Toronto journalist Heather Mallick, who used to write a puffball shopping column for The Globe and Mail, penned an opinion piece about the would-be American VP for the CBC (www.cbc.ca
). Gently, we'll say she doesn't love the Alaskan. Gently, we'll say there are some Republicans reaching for the red phone and the nuke button in response. I've got a couple of links for you (and, yes, if I were smarter these would all be embedded but I'm not so click on them and figure it out): http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/080920/world/us_cda_palin
and here's a great one:http://cosmos.bcst.yahoo.com/up/player/popup/index.php?rn=222561&cl=9796193&ch=222562
And, just for fun, here's Matt Damon:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6urw_PWHYk
Now, I'm admittedly one of those left-leaning liberal blah blah blahs, but does that blondie really represent Canada as it is? I thought she did everything but declare war. And did they really need to find some guy with a British accent to represent us? What, was Jean Chretien busy? I'm sitting here tonight and wondering how many different ways to be offended.
