Quickie: Too Late

Politico's Mike Allen has some advice for Sarah Palin:

Danger: She has to be sure she doesn’t become a self-caricature.

OMG, Mike, that ship has so totally sailed!

We can't completely get rid of Joe the Plumber, there's no way we've heard the last from Sarah Palin.

But she's now in the Michele Bachmann category of people who make the news only when they say something bat-shit crazy. So, I expect about one Sarah Palin story a week, on average.

Karl Rove and Mike Huckabee have dog-piled on her, and nobody on the right or the left seems to think her latest move was smart.
And you're right, the ship has sailed, arrived at the port and is ready to sail somewhere else.

She's like herpes. She'll never go away.

Of course we haven't seen the last of her! Why should Palin suffer the slings and arrows of serving as governor for a measly $175,000 per year when she can sit on her behind and spew "pearls of wisdom" for $175,000 per month?

She has a book coming out soon. Then she has to go on a PR tour to promote the book. I'm sure that a television show will follow.

Palin is more clever than I give her credit for. She will string her devoted fanbase along with an implied promise to run in 2012. Of course, she will decide against running at the last minute. By the time her adoring public finds out that she swindled them, it will be too late!

Leave it to Palin and her ilk to profit from being a professional quitter.

This is my little conspiracy theory, or course.

Golly! Mike Allen just doesn't get it, does he?

Without self-caricature she is nothing.

Thanks a lot for bringing back to my nightmares that Eraserhead nightmare!

I mean it -- thanks, a lot. I love that movie.

It's really something to realize, too, that Sarah's pic is even more scary.

OMG I have had so much fun harpooning Palin today. Peteykins, you once mentioned a great Photoshop trick for doing black eyes. Try as I might, the one I gave Palin today was no match for those you give Miss Cohen.
Tips, please?

The language of Mrs. Palin's speech clearly announced her intentions to swim upstream and spawn.

Of course the sports metaphors may indicate that she's signed with the WNBA.

Karen, I just do it really quick and dirty by using the "burn" tool. I also use it for quick shadows.

Karen Zipdrive said...

I have a hunch I'll be using that tip very soon, like after indictments are handed down.

Oh man, and this isn't even the first Lady In The Radiator macro I've seen of Palin.
