I like how it says "Licy" in the background right next to her head. Did Sarah have any special insights for her Republican Governor colleagues today? Are you kidding? No, just spokesmodelly platitudes:
"We are now the minority party, but let us not resolve to become the negative party. Losing an election does not have to mean losing our way," defeated vice presidential nominee Palin told the annual Republican governors' conference here.
"It is time for us to go our own way and leaving neither bitter nor vanquished, but confident in the knowledge there will be another day and we will gather once more with new strength. We'll rise to fight again."
Substance-free as usual. There will be another day! We'll rise to fight again! Well, she did say once that her favorite films were those feel-good sports movies from the 80s. Now she's quoting from them!
Personally, I preferred Tim Pawlenty. Why? Because his speech recommended hairdo vigilance. No, really:
"This party's going to require more than just a political comb-over. There's a lot of work in terms of making sure we have ideas that improve people's lives and that we properly communicate them," he told Fox News Thursday.
A political comb-over! What a great way to describe the waning days of the McCain campaign! Why didn't I think of that?
