Quote of the Week (Early Contender)

"Will someone please put Sarah Palin out of her agony? Is it too much to ask that she come to realize that she wants, in that wonderful phrase in American politics, 'to spend more time with her family'?"

-- Professional Smart Person Fareed Zarakia, who, in deference to Sarah Palin, is from India (a country that can't be seen from either Alaska or Russia)

Here's a great runner-up from D-Rep. Barney Frank:

"Give me those twelve people's names[the House Repubs that voted against the bailout], and I will go talk uncharacteristically nicely to them, and tell them what wonderful people they are, and maybe they'll think about the country."

Ahh Chez, but you can see India from Pakistan, which you can see from Afghanistan, which you can see from Tajikistan, which you can see from Uzbekistan, which you can see from Kazakhstan, which you can see from Russia, which you can see from Alaska, which Sarah Palin HAS seen, so you see she is eminently qualified to deal with all matters pertaining to India and its subcontinent.

Now if you can kindly answer the question of who "Nan" and "Vindaloo" are and what rank they hold in the Indian government she can get started.

Well Heavens, Mr. Chez, it's been such a blessing for lil' yours truly, in my extensive travels across our great and super awesome blessed land we call the U. S. of A., that I've been blessed with the awesome blessing of meeting many of Mr. Zacharius's blessed noble and proud people. A great people, who are proud, great, and also noble. Livin' in their cute lil' wigwams. Ridin' their lil' ponies. They're awesome, just, ya know, awesome!

What a blessing.

But I got a lil' advice for ya, there, kiddo! Dont'cha know, they prefer to be called Native Americans.

Gov, if you leave out the "dont'cha know" that could have come straight out of W's mouth. I guess you are qualified to lead the country after all.
