unpacking is the hardest part...

Gotta say, for a moment this whole Sarah "rabbit-out-the-hat" Palin situation looked like a swift kick in the neck to the Obama ticket. Afterall, she's like an uneducated middle American dream- 80s hair clip and all. Married to the high school sweetheart with five kids, conservative, anti-abortion, just green enough to matter and gangster (gotta give homegirl props for trying to strong arm the state police into firing her ex-brother in law).
But upon closer inspection-you've got the eldest son who was a "bit of a hot head" that's now enlisted in the army, the knocked-up 17 year-old daughter playing hide the tummy with the Down's baby and my fave is the amazing, supportive, union member husband who she couldn't wait to introduce as a world class snowmobiling champion. Only to find out dude has a DUI under his belt and a bit of a drinking problem.
Well alrighty then. Looks like it's gonna be a bumpy ride to November.

  1. I knew you were going to have something funny to say about this VP situation. :)
    Is it too late for McCain to find another VP? Is it too late for her to back out? Her family is a hot mess! Have you seen the pictures of her daughter kissing another girl? I hope McCain fired his team for even suggesting her.
