Jumping Jerboas and Sarah Palin…blogging in a strange, strange world

Posted in animals, celebrity tagged , , at 8:39 pm by Skybluepink

It’s been a busy summer and I have to say it’s been hard to find time to sit down and blog. I logged in today with the goal of writing a quick missive. However, I was surprised to see just how many hits I’ve been receiving even though I haven’t posted in over a month. And the reason for all of the hits? Jerboas and Sarah Palin! It’s a strange, strange world when the most searched words are about rare fluffy animals with huge ears, and  fluffy ex-governors with huge egos…

Suck it Sarah!

Just over a week ago the ever annoying Sarah Palin decided that she needed to tell the world how mean Katie Couric and Tina Fey had been to her over the course of her brief yet painful stint on the 2008 US election campaign trail. In an interview   with conservative John Ziegler, Palin demonstrated one more time why she is totally unqualified to lead anything other than a corporate cheer at a Walmart store or a caribou hunting party. She bitched and whined about the Couric interview where she took heat for appearing unable to name the newspapers or magazines she reads: “Um of them, any of them that have been in front of me all these years,” was the Alaska governor’s response (brilliant, well done!) In the Ziegler interview, Palin called that answer “too flippant” and suggested the question itself offended her…why yes, how dare Couric ask an obviously unqualified twit what newspapers she reads when its so apparent she has no clue about current national or world affairs!

“To me the question was more along the lines of, ‘Do you read, what do you guys do up there, what is it that you read?’…Katie, you’re not the center of everybody’s universe,” Palin added. Well done Sarah! You told her, very Vice-Presidential of you…seems like someone hit a nerve!

Palin also took a shot at Tina Fey, questioning how exactly she was named entertainer of the year for 2008. I think Fey’s impeccable, and quite frankly, hilairous  impersonations of Palin had something to do with it…with the spoof of the Couric interview being the icing on the cake.

On Sunday, January 11 the “who’s who?” of Hollywood (a legitimate question in the era of plastic surgery, peels and botox) gathered at the Beverly Hilton Hotel to slap each other on the back and learn who were the “winners” of the 66th Annual Golden Globes. One of the honorees was Tina Fey. Fey won a Golden Globe for her performance on 30 Rock but her acceptance speech was a chance to get back at her critics, and perhaps Palin. She told her anonymous Internet haters to “suck-it”. I’m quite sure that those who have chosen to send “hate-mail” to Fey are those who have blindly chosen to support Sarah Palin. 

Here’s the transcript of her acceptance speech: 

“I want to say thank you to the Hollywood Foreign Press. I’ll always love the Hollywood Foreign Press and have all the Hollywood Foreign Press action figures. Thank you, Will Arnett, for that joke. But I want you to really know how lucky I am to have the year I’ve had this year and, if you ever start to feel too good about yourself, they have this thing called the Internet! You can find a lot of people there who don’t like you! I’d like to address some of them now! BabsonLacrosse, you can suck it. DianeFan, you can suck it. Cougar Lover, you can really suck it ’cause you’ve been after me all year. And to my husband, Jeff, I love you. Thank you very much! “

Suck-it Sarah!

What does $180,000 get you? Ask Sarah Palin

Posted in celebrity, Fashion, politics tagged , , , at 4:23 am by Skybluepink

According to CNN, the GOP have now disclosed that Sarah Palin actually spent $180,000 on clothes and “styling” for herself and the family Palin, over just 9 weeks! Wow, really? $180,000 in just 9 weeks? Evidently the GOP are going to donate them to charity. I hope they didn’t pay for this little number–it looks like something she ran over with a snowmobile…

What does one wear to shoot a gun?

Posted in Fashion, politics tagged , , at 11:19 pm by Skybluepink

I ask this honestly as I’ve never shot a gun and don’t ever plan to–I’m just curious. Maybe Sarah Palin has the answer…or not.

From the look of this outfit I’m not sure I’d take the advice of this gun-toting VP candidate. A baby blue duster? Really? Exactly what kind of image is this woman trying to project? I’m not sure which is more terrifying, the look on her face or the nasty outfit. I guess it all makes sense if she’s getting fashion ideas from this gem of a magazine…

 

Yes, it’s the July/August 2008 edition and yes, it includes a piece on “Bringing Guns to School”.
