The big breaking news story of the day (apart from the fact that BBC News are openly calling a convicted criminal 'The Cash-in-Buttocks Man') is that US presidential candidate John 'Oven Chips' McCain has finally announced his running mate. And it's none other than former beauty queen and 44-year-old mother of five, Sarah Palin.
The BBC describe Ms Palin as "relatively unknown in US politics". The Washington Times say she's "unknown on the national stage". The Washington Post call her "totally unknown and untested", while CBS say "when it comes to being untested and unknown, Palin is in a league of her own".
Let's face it, no one's ever heard of her.
Apart from readers of this blog, obviously. Back in April 2007 (when she was even more unknown than she is now) (if that's possible), I not only published her photo, but wrote a sensitive and caring paragraph accusing her of killing dumb animals. And now, sixteen months later, only one more dumb animal (well, an old dog) needs to die to make her president. Assuming the election goes her way in November. Which it probably won't.
Anyhoo, it's nice to know the Republicans read this blog. I wonder if John McCain knows about her husband's snowmachine records..?
