My Poli-Sci Breakthrough

The Sarah Palin story borders on the surreal at this point. I mean geez, I took a couple of days over a holiday weekend for some bicycling, barbecuing, canning peaches. And when I got back online, there were so many new wrinkles to the Palin story I couldn't begin to keep them all straight. And if anything, the pace of new and bizarre things just keeps accelerating. And then, of exasperation was born inspiration.

I propose a new unit of measurement, the palin. It can be used to measure political stability and viability.

1 palin = 10 RPD (Revelations per day)

Most politicians would measure their viability in millipalins or micropalins. Anybody who reaches 100 millipalins should actively consider alternate career options.

It really is hard to keep up. Someone should be listing these revelations because they are starting to add up. REC

What scares me is: if they chose to reveal all this stuff, what did they decide to hide? Her cousin is a werewolf? She has a coat made of 101 Dalmatian puppy skins? (Is that sexist? QTG has me doubting myself.)

flushing

In Tucker Eskew's charming phrase:

"We are going to flush the toilet," said Tucker Eskew, who is a senior adviser to Ms. Palin, describing the campaign's plans for Labor Day, when much of the nation was busy with family and social activities.

Of course it may be that there is so much crap in there that it has backed-up and is spilling all over the floor.

Re: My Poli-Sci Breakthrough

Is this sexist (seriously).

Re: My Poli-Sci Breakthrough

Well, not intentionally. What part strikes you as sexist?

I'd like to know too

it doesn't help to point out sexism if you don't specify what it is.
