Countdown to Barack: 34 Days

Tonight is the night — it’s almost like Mary-Kate and Gael Garcia Bernal are planning to come over to play Scrabble and drink red wine I am so excited. Well, sort of. But, seriously this Palin/Biden showdown is probably the most anticipated VP debate ever. And after seeing the crazy blunders Palin has made, with Katie Couric and all, (did you see the one where she couldn’t say a news publication that she reads? Holy Shit), I am almost looking forward to the debate for pure entertainment value. She should totally just quit this whole VP deal and start playing herself on SNL. It would be a good career move, I mean Tina Fey pretty much just repeats what she says word for word anyway.

Okay. I'm getting nervous just writing about this — especially nervous to see how the Republicans will somehow defend her and try and make Biden look like a sexist bully. I really wonder what Biden's advisers are telling him to do. Oh my, we shall see.

So let me leave you with this little story my bro sent me:

While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old rancher, who's hand was caught in the gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to Palin and her bid. The old rancher said, "Well, ya know, Palin is a Post Turtle'".

Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what a "post turtle" was. The old rancher said, "When you're driving down a country road you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a "post turtle".

The old rancher saw the puzzled look on the doctor's face so he continued to explain. "You know she didn't get up there by herself, she doesn't belong up there, and she doesn't know what to do while she's up there, and you just wonder what kind of dummy put her up there to begin with."
