End Of The World As We Know It


Hockey mom went to the UN the other day to meet foreign leaders. The press was told that no reporters were allowed to witness the so-called meeting. It's obvious the Republicans didn't want anyone asking her a pesky old question about foreign affairs or the economy. She's only good at reading off of teleprompters. The Republicans couldn't figure out how to get a teleprompter in front of her and not have the reporters see it. The entire press corps said they would not participate if reporters were barred. So the Republicans relented. The press got to see hockey mom shake hands for sixty seconds and then they were quickly ushered out before anyone could ask a question. She constantly has that fake smile grimace plastered on her face. It's to make sure an answer to a question doesn't slip out. I think Rove crazy glued it shut. After The Iraq blunder, Katrina, Abu Graib, Guantanamo and fifty scandals, we finally have the collapse of the entire economy on Bush's watch. Well at least we know we have hockey mom to take over and fix it all. IF only she could answer a question posed to her. Well that's a small matter that a couple of teleprompters could fix.

Thank you Anetka.

Well you really nailed that vacant grin Tommy! Who would have thought it possible there was anyone (two of them!) worse than Bush waiting in the wings?

Tommy Kane said...

I think it's impossible to be worse than Bush.

Mark Hill said...

Awesome!!! I am uncharacteristically speechless!!

Tommy Kane said...

I wish she was speechless.

I agree that Palin is about as quick on her feet as a sloth in a puddle of molasses, but I think it's funny how much attention she gets. Everybody wants to grill her so bad in the media; if she was some old white dude that's been in Washington forever, she'd be getting as much press as Biden...

Tommy Kane said...

If that white dude was retarted like she is they would.

Tommy Kane said...

people lower expectations like Bush. They expect she can't. So when she can answer a question. everyone says wow she can be president even though she is an idiot.

Mark Hill said...

Part of me hopes that she pulls out of the race "for personal reasons>" The other part wants her to stay to guarantee a sound defeat.

And just so it's clear, I agreed with your commentary. It was the drawing that left me speechless.

huzzah!

Tommy Kane said...

she's a nut.

I'm not so sure she guarantees a defeat, unfortunately. There are a lot of people who seemed to just love this hockey mom from Alaska.

This is one of my favorite posts that you have ever done. Seriously, wonderful job.
I love that you didnt forget her "red power suit" she is constantly wearing.

Just wonderful job, brilliant last line.

Tommy Kane said...

They are really trying to lower expectations on her.

Marilyn said...

Amen, Tommy, she'll probably be wired for the debate so someone can feed her the answers.

Tommy Kane said...

Robot answers.

I heard her say in a radio interview That it's about time Joe Six Pack was represented in the Whitehouse..... Tomorrow should be interesting theater, the undisciplined against the unqualified.
