Quote of the Week (Honorable Mention)


"The big lecture buyers in the US are paralyzed with fear about booking her, basically because they think she is a blithering idiot. They don't want to tick people off."

-- Unnamed source speaking to the New York Post about why Sarah Palin is bombing on the lecture circuit

Yeah, and Joe The Plumber won't be handing out any diplomas in the near future, either. The two of them should get together, learn to tap, and become a modern Vaudevillian exhibition of dance and run-on sentences.

Hey don't bag on Joe. Imagine what you will look like with the international spotlight shining down. I think he stood tall and stuck to his principles, which I would hope I could do in that situation.

And Palin is less than impressive. I really hope the RNC is not pushing for her to run in '12. In fact, I don't see a single candidate I would vote for yet.

@Cheryl Robbins- Yes, but who plays the stiff in their rousing (dare I say extraordinary?) rendition of "Putting on the Ritz"?

Cheryl Robbins said...

jrm78 - Neither would. One would be on the stage singing, dancing, and blundering, while the other would be the puppeteer of Bob Novak ala Weekend At Bernie's.

Sorry, Will. During most of his mercifully brief 15-minutes, Joe didn't stick to his principles as much as exploit the spotlight and purposely play up the image he knew his "fans" (dear God) wanted and expected from him.

He was a tool -- a living breathing mascot/action figure -- of the right and he played that crap to the hilt.

Will B said...

We'll see how he does in the 9th Ohio.
