I just can't watch

About 45 minutes from my living room, the Republicans are whooping it up over Sarah Palin's speech.

But I just can't watch - it's not good for my health. Either I'll urp up all over the sofa, or I'll have a stroke.

I actually pity the Republicans -they have no choice but to publicly fawn all over this horrendous woman. They all have to act like she's just the best thing since penicillin and not a wretched example of blowhard rhetoric gone insane and horribly, horribly wrong. And all that glorious praise seems a bit strained, doesn't it? I think some are a bit more than a little embarrassed. But what can they do? Criticize? In an election year? They would have preferred a straight-up white guy they can understand like Tim Pawlenty or Mitt Romney but instead got Caribou Barbie! (I totally stole that name from another blog, can't remember who, but you know who you are. )

Did you see the statistics that the RNC is "slightly less diverse than in the past". Only because Ray Charles died. Never underestimate the power of large groups of stupid white people.

I'm a soccer Mom, I've read some books, I'm a college graduate, I served on our community Park Board in a town of 19,000 thank-you-very-much, I have an IQ of 130, and my teens are NOT pregnant. Sign me up McCrusty! I'm ready to serve as VP!

I think you are OVER qualified.

With each passing day, I come to appreciate your blog more and more.

Humor AND Wisdom - two great tastes that belong together.

You'd make a lousy Republican as a result.

I had just said that very thing to a friend. I suggested that we should toss her speech writer to the lions. But then I like lions.

A friend of mine had something to say so I put it on my blog.

You say you don't have pregnant teens? Then piss off lady, you gotta bring your own props to be part of the Republican circus.

Caribou Barbie! Oh how I wish it were me you stole that from! Brilliant!

You got Caribou Barbie from my blog and Bubs gave it to me. Use it and spread it around.

I just about fell out of my chair just now laughing at this post. Except the topic is so infuriating and alarming! Whew. Thanks for the laugh, though, because I too am on the verge of a stroke. At least we're all in this together.

Girl I can't watch it either. I haven't even turned on the local news after for fear I'll see an image of Palin. Girllllll, you got me laughing so hard that I peed on myself a little bit. You called McCain "McCrusty". I gotta go take a shower now, either that or put on one of my two year old's diaper!

If you don't have a fetus handy, then you can't be a republican. And if you're just too old to get a fetus, then get your daughter busy. They sure do LOVE those fetii. Once they're born, well, you know, then they're just useless poor people trying to get a handout but as long as they remain a fetus or even a zygote- Bring em' to the convention!!

Wait-- don't you live near a college? Cindy McCain said that since Sarah Palin is governor of the state closest to Russia that she's an expert on foreign policy. Congratulations-- you're our next Secretary of Education!

We just learned that The Actor's 7th grade science teacher is a creationist. The state standards require that he teach evolution, but it sounds like he won't be doing so without qualifying that he believes that evolution is "only a theory."

I smell a fight.
