Ok, So Maybe I Only Needed Four Days Off.

I know, I know, so I lied. I thought I needed to take some time off because I didn’t feel like being funny for a while.
I guess I should have known a certain Governor from way up north would go and say something stupid during my vaca from my blog!

Sooooo, Sarah Palin thinks the media is going easy on Caroline Kennedy because of her social class.I think CLASS is the operative word here.

Holy shit. Please someone tell me she isn’t even going to try to compare herself to Caroline Kennedy.
Sarah, Sarah, Sarah, please shut up. Don't you have any shame girl?
Her exact words:

“It’s going to be interesting to see how that plays out and I think that as we watch that we will perhaps be able to prove that there is a class issue here also that was such a factor in the scrutiny of my candidacy versus say, the scrutiny of what her candidacy may be.”


OK people, if she wants to compare, lets start comparing.

Kennedy: BA Harvard (took her only four years, imagine that?), Columbia Law School (top ten in class)
Palin: Hawaii Pacific, North Idaho Community College, University of Idaho, Matanuska-Susitina Community College, Back to University of Idaho. Whew, Did I miss one? Finally graduating with a degree in journalism. (No one will release her class rank, wonder why?).
Looking at the two, I can see where one draws parallels. I was just telling someone the other day "Ya know, I wish I had a penny for every time I read the business section and see another graduate from North Idaho Community College being named CEO of some Fortune 500 Company!"

OK. Next up, experience.

Kennedy: Attorney, writer, editor, board member on a number of non-profit boards. Director of the Office of Strategic Partnership for the NYC Dept of Education, where she helped raised 65 million for NYC Public Schools. She is also an advisor to the Harvard Institute of Politics,
and she co-authored two books on Civil Liberties.
I could go on, but I wouldn’t want to embarrass Winkey any further.

Palin: Reporter in Alaska, helped with her husbands commercial fishing company. She then ran for Wasilla City Council against a telephone operator. She won with 530 votes.
Mayor of Wasilla for three terms. Population 6,300.
My personal favorite, she was appointed to chair an ethics commission at the same time she served as one of three directors of "Ted Stevens Excellence in Public Service, HA.
Is anyone seeing the similarities?
Then she became Governor of Alaska. Population 730,000.

OK, OK, I think we all get the point. So I am just going to close with one thing. When Caroline Kennedy was Director of the Office of Strategic Planning for New York City Public Schools, they had 1.1 Million students.
What’s the population of Alaska?????

I am not even going to get into the part where she says Tina Fey and Katie Couric have been exploiting her to further their careers. Yeah, they really needed her to become successful. They were such losers!
She goes on to rant about anonymous bloggers. Saying people believe what they say and they won't even sign their names. Well let me get one thing straight Sarah, I am not anonymous. My name is Eileen D'Amico. and everyone fuckin knows it. I can't write for shit, but I am still smarter than you......So there!

Told you I would come back with a vengeance and its’ only been a few days!

Again, I'm writing this on the fly. Sorry for the grammar.
Check in 1/21 for Inauguration Stories. I'm sure there will be plenty. Can't wait.

Rock on!
I feel the same way. How about Fran Drescher trying to get the seat. Maybe she has political possibilities that I'm unaware of, but from where I am at this point, I think Sweet Caroline has it. The rest are just envious that she has been so low profile and is still not beating her drum while others present her qualities. You gotta love it.
Happy New Year, Hon!

Yipee! She's back!!!
Don't get me started on this Caroline Kennedy stuff. "Just give her the damn seat and thank your lucky stars she will take it...." that's all I gotta say!
And, how about Ms. P's comment that if she were a DEMOCRAT..everyone would love her! She reminds of me of someone's out-to-lunch aunt who was the only person in their family that went to "college" afer high school...she went to a community college (not that there's anything wrong with that)... all of a sudden she is the voice of reason, intelligence and opinion for an entire family of rich. albiet uneducated, coal miners, plumbers and electricians.
And, another thing....she's dissing Tina Fey? What a back stabber she is! She said she loved her....
That's it. She better stop talking now. Aren't we tired of her anyway???
Alright....welcome back! Why did you anticipate that you would not feel like being funny? Sometimes making fun and laughing is all we got....
As for the soup....I really, really wanted to talk to the chef...he was just too busy. But, I will triumph...

omg you are TOO damn funny!!!

AND you swear???? Oh yeah, i'll be back God dammit.

(Sarah Palin will provide us with material for a long damn time. And here I thought I was gonna miss George Bush's speeches......)

He he he.

The world is a better place thanks to Sarah.

Even here in Australia, when someone says something stupid the retort is 'I can see Russia from my house!'

I see a sitcom. Roseanne meets the Clampetts.
