This woman just will not go away. And if she's the hope the of the Republican Party, they're doomed. From yesterday's Sketch Book by Dana Milbank in the Washington Post, here is Palin: 'Just Getting Started'.
Continuing on a Rhapsody on a Theme of Palin in G-minor (as in "Go away already"), Jonathan Capeheart in the Post's PostPartisan round-up also mentions Sarah Palin's Next Act and, in a follow-up, begs someone, anyone, Beuller, to please Make Her Stop.
Moving away from that now, as if there isn't enough divisiveness in the world, a Catholic priest in South Carolina has told his parishioners, if you voted for Obama, forget taking communion. Hm. I don't seem to remember Jesus saying political choice was a prerequisite for partaking of the Last Supper or any subsequent iterations of his final act before his crucifixion. For your amusement (or head shaking. Whichever) here is SC Priest: No Communion for Obama Supporters.
Finally, I'm hesitant to highlight this one, but as I find this kind of sentiment has no place in our great country, I'm going to include this piece. It's a collection of recent news stories about racists who are gunning for our new president-elect. The most disturbing stories are the ones involving kids. A note to those who would espouse these kinds of sentiments: you're fomenting treason and terrorism, which makes you no different than bin Laden and his band of criminals. Think about it. Here is Racists React to Obama Victory.
Not wanting to end on that sour, sad note, today is also Friday, which means a photo is in order. How about this one?
Happy Friday, everyone.
