Sarah Palin winked at me


Ok, this is, I swear, the last time I drink and watch a televised vice-presidential debate. I'll tell you why.

Just a few minutes into the event, Sarah Palin winked at me. Well, she winked into the camera anyway, and it felt like she was winking at me. I didn't think one or two bourbons was enough to induce Hunter Thompson-esque hallucinations like that.

She was winking at me! Not you.

Fools, the lot of you.

She was winking at me - a Canadian, no less.

Part of her new foreign policy. When, you know, she's not flaunting her energy strategies.

(I don't care how folksy she is, or whether or not she has a nervous tic, I can tell you right her and now - I won't be voting for her...)

This is in no way associated to your post, but I to mention that the news showed a hunting bow endorsed by Palin called the "Sarahcuda".

I kid you not...

Winky and Blinky in 2008!

Good thing you weren't doing the drinking game. If you'd done a shot every time she said Alaska was an energy-producing state, you'd be seeing a lot more than that.

Bubs said...

Samurai, or if I'd downed a shot each time I heard "also", "maverick", "darn", "reform" or "heck".

Erik, my 78 year old mom made a funny but cruel comment about McCain. When I called her to ask if I'd actually SEEN that wink, she confirmed it. She said McCain has been doing the wink as well, but "when he does it he looks like he may be having a stroke."

Skylersdad...wow.

Baronness, she's not only reaching across the aisle, but also across the border. By the way, as a Canadian, can you see Russia from your house?


Eebie, well thank God. I can sleep better now.

That's funny, because we had the Cubs game on at work and I swear to god, the whole team flipped me off. Well, at least it felt that way.

Asthmagirl said...

Just for the Record, I can see the Baroness from my house. I'm now an expert on Canada!

And Sarah winked at me... her fellow maverick!

Melinda June said...

In that still she looks like she be doing a pirate impression. ARRRGH!

Spartacus said...

You think she got something caught in her eye? Perhaps a beam? After all, she's of a religious bent. I'm just sayin...

Jess Wundrun said...

Bubs, your mother is very funny. You are a near apple to her tree, or however that goes.

Can you imagine if she becomes vice president - translators everywhere are shaking with fear...

Tenacious S said...

Aw, say it ain't so! Dog gone it! It's kind of a relief. I thought for a second she was batting for my team and winking at me!

kirby said...

Considering her opinions on abstinence only education, and seeing how well that's worked out for her and her family, are you sure she just isn't trying to flush some of Todd's(or McCain's, or Brad's) spooge from her eye?

Wren said...

Clowns=Sarah Palin winking.

At least she didn't roll her eyes, like just about every other woman in America did when we saw her do that cutesy, peppy widdle baracuda wink at every man in the nationwide audience. Gag me. Oh, and those widdle nose-scrunches, too. Grrr.

My, I do sound bitter, don't I. I'll just put it down to nearly 8 years of enduring Bush as he swaggered around with his crotch stuffed with socks and put that snide, whiney tone in his voice when challenged with questions. Bleh.

justacoolcat said...

No, I'm pretty sure she was winking at you. You're just the kind a bourbon fueled maverick they don't make in Alaska.

Cormac Brown said...

I don't remember her doing this, though that probably was because I was to busy groaning into my hands at every prevarication and question dodge (note that as a result, I was almost hoarse by the end of the debate).

This pic does remind me of a song in an Abbott and Costello movie about "Agnes" and her propensity to unintentionally wink after a couple of drinks.

D.Debil said...

Was that a wink or was she just clamping down on that giant self-righteous hypocritical "do as I say not as I do" log she has stuck up in there?

Randal Graves said...

Those eyelids are like a vice grip that can kill.

FranIAm said...

Late to the party but I simply must say that in the great circle of life, Sarah winking will somehow, someway tie back to a scary clown picture.

You mark my words.

And your mom- hil-fecking-alarious!

theideaofprogress said...

She's trying to hypnotize us all.

Distributorcap said...

i am ALWYAS late

DivaJood said...

Tinky Winky? Isn't Tinky the Gay Teletubby?

Grant Miller said...

Good thing she doesn't have a lazy eye.
