The Tea Baggers daydream…

David Horsey,, David Horsey speaks on Sarah Palin
David Horsey,, David Horsey speaks on Sarah Palin

Good morning, Netizens...

Somehow in the vibrant corners of my mind, where all kinds of imponderable things rise to the surface, I just knew David Horsey would eventually get around to the issue of Sarah Palin and her book tour again. It isn't that he has been dodging the issues which Sarah Palin brings to mind, for as many who follow her every statement know, she is quite capable of manipulating the airwaves when it suits her purposes.

However, I suppose if the so-called Tea Baggers were to have Christmas wishes, I could imagine Horsey's impression of that meeting might be accurate. Sitting on Santa Sarah's lap would be a high-priority item, and if one were lucky, you might even get an autograph.

At last report her book, which some say was ghost-written, is selling well, especially in the geographical/political areas Palin has chosen. After her ill-fated run at the Vice-Presidency in which she was manipulated by her “handlers” depending upon your view, it is refreshing to see her performing some manipulations of her own. Of course, it depends whether or not you are a “Tea Bagger” sitting on Santa Sarah's lap or whether you grit your teeth each time Palin flashes her pearly-whites at you.
