But now I'm wound up tight with gnarled nerves and even though I've been all "OK, now I'm a writer, so watch out world Imma be writin'" and decided- like I do- that my eccentric little personal blog is an Important Soap Box and I am a Political Commentator I got nothing except for linkie shorthand and it's OK because MamaPop thinks for me thankgoddess and they probably weren't responding to this thing at SkepChick (and don't take it that I don't rly rly HEART many of the things I read there when I do read things there) but if I were going to respond to that I would have written this and I'd be so fucking proud of it.
But, now that I got two incredibly satisfying run-on parasentencegraphs out of my system, I can also add: There was a correspondent on O'Reilly who was trashing the hell out of Us magazine, and she was railing against the "Babies, Lies, Scandals" headline and indeed, ew it's very sensationalist and the editor admitted that the "lies" part were not actual lies told by Palin. But the thing is guys, it's Us magazine. It's standing in line at Mal*Wart journalism. I mean "journalism." Who fucking cares?
In the interest of helping to disseminate actual information about Palin's record, let me point you here: to a letter by Anne Kilkenny, who knows Palin pretty well. Teaser: Sarah Palin likes to bully librarians and ban books. But her hair is fantastic. How can I get bangs like that?
I really want a drink. But there is no rum for me. I look young and have no proof that I am a tired ass cranky bleeding heart mama trying to simultaneously take down The Borg and defend moms everywhere from stupid distracting attacks and earning by all rights, a simple rum and coke to wash down my blog.
Oh. Also? I am going to try to choke down McCain's speech.
O'Reilly says he's going to wrap himself in an American flag-
Edit: Or, yeah... hehee? It's possible it was a metaphor flag and I'm now out as a crazy person. But in my defense, who knew Bill O'Reilly had the capacity for metaphor?
