going rogue-sarah palin

“when are they going to let her speak? vanessa williams gets to talk more about ugly betty than sarah palin gets to talk about running for vice president” -chris rock

she admits as much in this book, but it just goes to show how astute comedians are.

“These good folks were exactly the type of Alaskans who supported us: hardworking, unpretentious, patriotic, and ready for honest leadership. They treated us to slices of homemade rhubarb pie, then gave us a whole blueberry pie that we shared with friends after our 800-mile, 40-hour round-trip, driven to the sound of the Black Eyed Peas and an old LL Cool J remix we found in the glove box.” (160)

40 hours of bep?! something tells me that this is post-first album, thus making a strong case that she must be the devil, because who would choose this?! and an ll cool j remix? which one? damn, remind me not to roadtrip with the palins.

  1. “She was a big supporter of the small city library, where the librarian wasn’t exactly on board with my administration. I was already mixing it up with the librarian’s good friend, the police chief, and maybe that wasn’t sitting well with her.” (108)

    uh oh, don’t mess with the city librarian. s/he will cut you. razorblades hidden in the cheek, even if s/he’s not from the bronx.

  2. “Track, right?” he said. “Like tracking an elephant?”
    I explained that no, it was because obviously we loved sports, and the baby was born during the spring track season.
    “What if he’d been born during wrestling season?” Dad asked. “Would you have named him ‘Wrestle’?”
    “No,” I said, smiling, “we’d have named him ‘Mat.'”
    “And if he’d been born during basketball?”
    “We could’ve named him ‘Court.'”
    “And hockey?”
    “What’s wrong with ‘Zamboni’?” (75)

    uh huh. well, she’s right on par to be a celebrity with these silly name choices. mat with one tee! yikes.

  3. “People who adhere to the unconstrained vision (the label applied to them is “liberal” or “left-wing”) believe that human nature is changeable (therefore perfectible) and that society’s problems can all be solved if only the poor, ignorant, disorganized public is told what to do and rational plans are enacted. And who better to make those plans than an elite bureaucracy pulling the strings and organizing society according to their master blueprint? No one can doubt that our current leaders in Washington subscribe to this unconstrained vision.
    Conservatives believe in the “constrained” political vision because we know that human nature is flawed and that there are limitations to what can be done in Washington to “fix” society’s problems.
    Commonsense Conservatives deal with human nature as it is-with its unavoidable weaknesses and its potential for goodness. We see the world as it is-imperfect but filled with beauty. We hope for the best. We believe people can change for the better, but we do not ignore history’s lessons and waste time chasing utopian pipe dreams.
    We don’t trust utopian promises from politicians. The role of government is not to perfect us, but to protect us-to protect our inalienable rights. The role of government in a civil society is to protect the individual and to establish a social contract so that we can live together in peace.” (542-3)
