Sarabarracuda become Scaracuda

A couple of articles today continuing in the vein of Palin and her piranha/pitbull personality.

From my Scary Fem friend, Adriana, Dana Milbank's article in today's Washington Post: Unleashed, Palin Makes a Pit Bull Look Tame.

And again from friend Sylvia, Will Mean Girl Palin Herself Appear on SNL? On the one hand, it will be good for the McCain campaign if she embraces Fey and her parody. On the other hand, it will be bad for the Obama campaign because it will humanize her and show she can laugh at herself. (Normally a good thing, but in this campaign it could be a swing thing and that's bad. It least for Obama it's bad.)

Meanwhile, Jewish voters in South Florida find Palin offensive. Tristram Korten reports I Find Her Offensive. (Sadly, I wish I could say the same for Mormon voters, but alas. My sister informs me that many of her women friends at church are leaning toward McCain-Palin because they can relate to Palin. Really? Seriously?! How? But that's a discussion for another day and I may have meat for this discussion after a get-together with my sister and some of her friends this coming Friday. It will be very, very hard to restrain myself.)

I got an e-mail yesterday from a relative (who I used to have some respect for) saying that Obama's the anti-Christ. Literally. Like "The Omen". It really made me sick and it's an example of the fact people actually believe some of the bile that spews from Palin's mouth.

Though she hasn't said he's the anti-Christ. YET.

Lost in Utah: I had an email yesterday from my mother titled "Food for Thought" about how Obama was only in the Senate 143 days before he announced he was running for president. It was everything I could do to not email her back and say, "And your point is?"

I'm sure it's only a matter of time before Palin refers to Obama as the anti-Christ.

I might consider her a force to be reckoned with aka pitbull if she weren't such an obvious lightweight. She reminds me of kids on the playground hurling stupid remarks at each other that make no sense, " Your mother is a poo poo head!" She has this bag of insultsl she's memorized and she just grabs one out and let's them fly, carefully sticking in buzz words that will ignite the crowds in between. May I please be excused to go to Paris NOW and come back AFTER the election?
