Pink elephants on parade

Former half term governor Sarah Palin's PAC released a video showing her rallying support from white women accusing them of being psychic and having similar traits to those of the animal kingdom. While she's delivering this brand of folksy humor the video is cut with shots of women holding grammatically awful, as well as nonsensical, signs. She suggests that women are now rising up against the tide of our Muslim half breed Kenyan President and encourages them to keep up the good work.

What's even more funny about this video is at the end she warns Washington to prepare for the stampede of pink elephants (her words) that will trample our nation's capital. So D.C. is full of drunken politicians who hallucinate? Damn I moved to the wrong town.

There was a time I used to get the appeal of the snowbilly. She came into the spotlight as a fresh faced outsider with simpleton values and what seemed like a common sense approach to politics. While she was widely regarded as a moron she has amazing stage presence and can definitley work up a crowd.

Then of course she quit her term as governor saying she was doing it for the people of Alaska and wanted to focus more on her family. Why she would abandon the people who voted for her and still claim it was in their best interests is anyone's guess. I still don't see how flying all over the country giving speeches at $30,000+ is quality time with your loved ones, but perhaps my family values are different.

Still there are many who love this woman and want to see her succeed in the political arena for reasons I'll never understand. I get why some people don't like Obama or his policies, but this is their alternative?

I guess if you're one of these people who think the below protest sign makes logical sense, you might be in the ranks of Palin supporters.

"I love those hockey moms. You know what they say the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull is? Lipstick." - Sarah Palin
