    There was a great Maureen Dowd article today that took a look at Sarah Palin’s “relationship with the English language.” Do check it out!

    With Tina Fey’s parodies so closely mirroring what Palin herself says, and with Palin sometimes seeming like a folksy caricature of herself, it’s easy to pretend that she is indeed a funny character. But over the last couple days she’s been repeating a smear about Obama “palling around with terrorists,” claiming that he’s an outsider who “doesn’t see America like you and I see America.” Not so cute and folksy anymore.

    I’m worried that people will take her recent, nastier-than-ever, attacks on Obama seriously, but a democratic strategist pointed out: “The problem is the messenger. If you want to start throwing fire bombs, you don’t send out the fluffy bunny to do it.” Plus, people who take her at her word were probably a lost cause, anyway, because I did also read today that she called Afghanistan “our neighboring country.” Oh, boy. Bless her heart…
