Sarah Palin and the Tennis Player

When I first saw the video of Sarah Palin talking about Russia and Canada I was shaken to the core.

What if she got the two countries mixed up and nuked us by mistake?

Watch CBS Videos Online
But then I realized that the Republican operatives have got her so paranoid about what she does know and what she doesn't know, she's lost all her confidence.

So now instead of the Attila from Wasilla, she's more like a moose in the headlights.

Or the tennis player who said "I can do that."

But couldn't....


Never mind the Anti-Christ.

The match is still on.

But Sarah Palin is OVER...

I broke out into laughter when I heard her arguments about being in the know on foreign policy because Alaska is geographically close to Russia. What kind of a stupid a** argument is that? For me it was did she just say that? Then an oh yah she sure did. I hope this does not mean the end of women entering into the highest levels of government forever in the US. Overall it's not looking good at all for our sex. No wonder they won't allow her to be interviewed. In light of her performance/ability I would say it was a smart strategy.

It seems the Canadian Conservatives also recognize the wisdom of an "avoid the press" strategy. Never know they might ask tough questions and expect answers that make sense on what he intends to do for our country. Horrors....

Ahhhhhh.....Simon......I think, if you squint, you can see that Mr. Palin's label pin looks like, egads!, a Maple Leaf.

Hi Woman at Mile O !! I must say I was stunned too. But don't worry this won't mean the end of women and high office. Sarah Palin is an insult to women everywhere. There are millions and millions of women more qualified to be President. I happen to believe that women need to takeover running the world. It's not just a matter of's a matter of survival. And you're right our own foul Cons use the same media strategy as the Cons in the U.S. Hopefully they will suffer the same fate... :)

Hi Gazetteer !!! Yes...I see it now. The only thing scarier than Sarah Palin? The man who wishes he was a President instead of a Prime Minister. Our very own wingnut Stephen Harper.
When he's finally toppled can we exile him to Alaska. Mush Mush. Please? :)
