ELECTION COUNTDOWN 2008
LOOK WHO'S FAMOUS!
OF SARAH PALIN
"My stylist? Uh, do you
mean who cuts my
hair? Why that would
be Horace, our dog
groomer. He's very
"So you like my hair?
Well, Mr. Andre in Fairbanks does it--
and HE'S STRAIGHT!
Did you check out my lip gloss and the $700 eyeglass frames?"
"Sure, the blond streak
is a little playful, but then
I'm a little playful, too,
especially in moose
season. Vladimir Putin
or "Vlad," as he likes
me to call him, is
really fond of my new do."
Let's focus on important issues like Sarah's hairdo
By MURRY FRYMER
It is so nice to see Sarah Palin these days. My, how happy she looks. What a dream. A hockey mom one day and now shes going to be vice president and all the women in the land want to wear shoes just like her. She gets to take her baby everywhere, even national conventions for godsake. Just the other day she may have hidden her Down Syndrome child, but that was before and this is now.
It is so sad to see Barack Obama looking confused. He was the celebrity just a few weeks ago. That was before he, too, came out of the anonymity of life to be a suddenly famous man. Now he may go back to anonymity just because millions of women are thrilled at how one of their own might make it to the White House. Can you imagine Sarah dealing with Putin? Isnt life great?!
It is so strange to see John McCain wondering where he is. McCain is running for President and yet this offbeat woman he picked to join him now outshines him. Boy, is he surprised. He seems to have forgotten all his positions on all matters he has been building up all these years. But he has gotten old and keeps forgetting his positions. Hes probably surprised that the media keeps reminding him. Only the media seems to care. And all the while he hasnt got time for the naps that he needs to get him through the day.
It is so silly to watch the analysts on television analyzing and analyzing and not one of them is much of an expert on shoes or hairdos or all the things that people really care about. The shows are full of people scoffing and other people scoffing back and they fill so many hours.
But it all comes back to Sarah. She is having a ball. There are so many stories about her old home town of 5,000 which is now on the world map. There are so many pictures of her kids and her husband and the moose she killed. She just stands there and beams.
George Bush is home soaking his feet. He knows hes going to miss it all when he goes. Even all the criticism was OK because he was the center of attention. But now the center of attention changes so fast.
Even Barry Bonds is forgotten. Would you think that we could forget Bill and Hillary Clinton? Hillary was the great female hope. Barack was the great black hope. Where is his minister now?
Now there is just Sarah and it doesnt get any better than this.
