I'm sure you've heard about this: Sarah Palin threw a big rally for Michele Bachmann today, in Minneapolis, where nobody can vote for Michele Bachmann (?). But whatever, if two people were ever made for each other, it's Sarah 'n' Michele.
I've got two things two say about this wonderful event. First, Palin says, "And I knew that [Michele and I] would be buddies when she came up and said we should 'drill here and drill now.' And I said -- and then I replied, 'Drill baby, drill' And then we both said, 'You betcha.'"
And what's so great about this is that it was our beloved Michael Steele, not Sarah Palin, who coined the phrase "Drill baby, drill" in his speech at the Republican National Convention, literally the only thing he has ever said that influenced his fellow Republicans.

OK, the second thing: what the hell is Sarah wearing? This is important! OMG, is it a black velvet coat? It is:
