Okay, fine -- so one more Palin thing (because, dammit, this really is too easy). As Oliver Willis rightly says, this is the creepiest thing you'll see on the internet today.
It's an essay from the amusingly misnomered conservative website "The American Thinker" in which the author "channels" Piper Palin, basically writing from her perspective:
"I’ve met a lot of nice people who really like my mom. They thank her for not being afraid to defend real, American values. Maybe that’s what the media can’t figure out — why so many people believe in my mom when the super-smart media tells them not to. It’s kind of like my 4th grade class elections. My friend Sally was running, but a group of really mean girls made up lies about her because they wanted their friend elected, and then everyone turned on Sally. I don’t think people even believed the lies, but they were scared those girls might say things about them, or make fun of them, so they just went along with it. Well, also Sally promised free ice cream to everyone in the lunchroom.
My mom isn’t so much bothered by what people think she is, especially the media. That’s why she’s not afraid to go to places like the East Coast, where probably not everybody likes her. I mean President Obama won’t even go on FOX News since the Super Bowl or visit a Tea Party rally. What is he so afraid of?"
Wow. That's -- interesting.
First of all, the next person who gives me any crap about occasionally dragging Palin's kids into the strike zone gets a kick to the throat. Second, and along those lines, a standing ovation to the first person who please, please, please writes a piece "channeling" Trig Palin.
