Good afternoon, Netizens...
I've often had a spot of fun watching Sarah Palin but David Horsey's cartoon this afternoon absolutely left me gasping with laughter on the floor as it is dead on. Here we have the Pied Piper Palin leading the national news media down the road to perdition without so much as an itinerary, an agenda nor even a promise that she is running for President. Ostensibly she is simply on a vacation with her family to see all the historical sights along the East Coast and along the way even have pizza with the Donald while meandering around in a bazillion-dollar tour bus depicting the American Constitution, American flags and her own signature.
So what is Sarah Palin doing if she is not running for office?
Others have said it, and I concur mightily. Why should she seriously run for an office that entails a lot of hard work when she can garner so much attention without having to issue any of those pesky policy statements, or even make speeches where the news media are eagerly awaiting, like a pack of wolves, for her to drop more of her homespun humor and inadvertent gaffes. Being demure about running for office appears to be working for the Pied Piper of Wasilla; after all, is she paying all the expenses while driving that huge bus around the countryside? You betcha NOT.
After all, she is entertained with all the celebrity status she has acquired, and because she is not entirely a dumb bunny, she is smart enough to know having the “lamestream” news media chasing her around the countryside clamoring for her attention is far more entertaining than actually winning a Presidential election.
David Horsey certainly got this one right. Of course, as always, your opinions may differ.
