Laugh While You Still Can
American comedians should be praying that Sarah Palin prevails in her struggle for, I mean, against dark patriarchy, because she truly is a godsend to their calling. For example, this Huffington Post piece on the reasons she trumps Barack Obama is very funny, even if predictably so:
Yes, Sarah recently admitted that she didn't know exactly what it was the Vice President did. Yes, she wants creationism taught in public schools. Yes, she doesn't believe global warming is manmade. But I'd like to point out the fact that she wears glasses -- and that's not something dumb people generally do. Obama? No glasses.
Personally, Palin reminds me of the sort of church-going women who strike fear in my heart, the sort that takes her convictions -- and they are all convictions that appall me -- more seriously than her male counterparts. And if Americans are dumb enough to elect her ticket, I'm going to leave the country.

I wish Michael Bérubé were still blogging.

I'm going to leave the country.

I hope you find another one where you are given more opportunities to vote away your civil liberties again!

I didn't say I wasn't going to vote, did I? There are plenty of expatriates who do. And I always have voted in national elections, since I was first able to in 1988. As I recall, though, while almost everyone voted for the first Patriot Act, it was the brainchild of the Bush Administration. I'm pretty sure I didn't vote for him.

She reminded me of Celia Hoades from Weeds combined with Rexella Van Impe. The cheerful psycho smile is what does it.

They are charging seven protesters with Terrorism. Took them long enough to get around to this.

They should charge Amy Goodman. She has been terrorizing me for years!

This election is causing me to rethink some things. Women like Palin have, until just recently, caused me to laugh. I grew up around women like that, and I find that their vigor in nonsensical beliefs often comes from a distinct feeling of powerlessness, which makes their actions sad yet somewhat funny. Or, perhaps, that is just my defense mechanism.

Now, however, it is hard to laugh when that person may actually have power. I want to say that I am with you with the moving, but I thought the same thing in 2004 and I didn't move then. I doubt I will move now, despite all my desire to do so.
