Sarah Palin, pitbull no more...
Pitbull, Barracuda, Sarah Palin, all make for a good show but have no bite.
Why is the pitbull being wrapped in cotton wool? Sarah Palin can't have dinner with anybody unless it's someone friendly. She can't make a speech unless it's behind closed doors. She doesn't give interviews unless it's to one of those reporters who worship the ground she walks on.
Before she resigned we were treated to nice tweety rants and irrational press releases. We had a diet of word salad with ingredients like the constitution and our brave men and women blah blah. Unfortunately, nothing written in her name since August 7 has flown from her own fingertips.
I'm not holding my breath about the Hong Kong speech. It will be carefully crafted by somebody else and expertly delivered by a puppet who had weeks to get it word perfect.
So... while the puppetmasters retouch the pitbull's lipstick for future appearances, we'll continue to discuss Babygate to our heart's content. Patrick has sent in another good post, coming next...
