All I Want for Christmas Is an Enemies List
From a really entertaining little piece in the Immoral Minority detailing how a handful of specific bloggers -- in the spirit of the season, you're welcome to refer to them henceforth as the "Four Wise-Asses" -- have actually been banned from attending any of Sarah Palin's Going Rogue events:
"My first hint that something may be wrong down in Who-ville was when I was asked for my ID, not once, but twice. Then as Dennis and I were about to sign in, and the lady behind the desk took our picture with a little digital camera! ...
Almost as soon as I had my picture taken I felt a hand on my shoulder.
I turned around and came face to face with a local police officer who quickly apologized and then informed me that I was on the 'banned list.'
'I am on the WHAT list?' I asked.
'The banned list sir, I am going to have to escort you off of the property. This is a private event.'
On my way toward the door I stopped to wait for Dennis so that we could leave together, however the police officer again placed his hand on my shoulder and insisted that I continue on toward the exit. ... Outside Dennis joined me and told me that he had learned that both he and I were on the banned list, along with Shannyn Moore, and that they even had pictures of us to reference for quick identification."
As Gawker puts it, "This story is a who's who of the Wasilla Hillbilly's pettiest feuds."
