She gots spirit, yeah, she do

Maybe Sarah Palin needs a writer, or at least a filter. Witness this quote from Mrs. Articulate in a recent interview with CBS' Katie Couric:

"We have trade missions back and forth, we do. It's very important when you
consider even national security issues with Russia. As Putin rears his head and
comes into the air space of the United States of America, where do they go? It's
Alaska. It's just right over the border. It is from Alaska that we send those
out to make sure that an eye is being kept on this very powerful nation, Russia,
because they are right there, they are right next to our state."

Uh, not to be disrespectful, but WTF? What DID she say? I can hardly wait to hear her debate Joe Biden on Thursday night. High comedy is promised. But it might be an experience not unlike watching old "I Love Lucy" episodes, when I'd put a blanket over my face because I was so embarrassed for women everywhere that any one woman could be so cute but sooooooo STUPID.

There. Got THAT off my chest. And now, about that $700 billion and that cardboard box down by the river with my name on it.

The whirl begins

Some of you might be wondering, "why does she have this blog but she never writes in it?" Some others might wonder, "Doesn't she ever take cool pictures like the other smarter bloggers do?"

Answer No. 1: I'm really, really busy lately, now that school is back in session and my real job gets in the way. Plus I help my husband with his business stuff (so we can, like, eat and live in a permanent structure that is nowhere close to "down by the river"). I love to write in this blog and would do so all day long, just to please you, but oh, well ... .

Answer No. 2: I don't even own a digital camera. And my offspring can tell you what a poor photographer I am, always cutting off heads or sneezing while clicking the shutter. The results aren't pretty. So use your imagination. And read, damn it. That's what words are for. You don't need pictures all the time! This is not Life magazine or People or Us Weekly.

But anyway ... I'm dying to talk to y'all about Sarah Palin. OMG. Seriously.
