Sarah Palin Tries Work, Doesn’t Like It

Sarah Palin Tries Work, Doesn't Like It

Former Alaska Temp-Governor Sarah Palin was a temp-waitress on her unreality TV show last week. Mrs. Palin waited tables at Peggy’s Airport Cafe in Anchorage (1675 E. Fifth Avenue, try the pies). She staged the event to show 9 year old daughter Piper “what it was like to be on your feet all day, work extremely hard and wait on people.” The presence of the professional video crew was purely coincidental.

Service was even slower than usual at Peggy’s that day, as Sarah the hard workin’ waitress spent all her time getting her picture taken with customers. Then again, Mrs. Palin’s whole career has been one long photo op

“Mom is doing horrible as a waitress,” said Piper. “I wouldn’t tip her because she spends too much time at the tables talking.”

“Sarah Palin: Candidate, patriot, waitress,” Francis Lam, Salon.

Sarah Palin’s Hamburger on the Hoof

December 13, 2010

Sarah Palin's Hamburger on the Hoof

Here’s a wild game recipe from former Temp-Governor Sarah Palin: Caribou Hamburger. You know it’s fresh because you start grinding it while the animal is still alive. Here’s how:

Take one free-range, fresh and local Alaska caribou. Instead of downing it with one or two well-placed high-powered rifle shots, shred it with about five rounds. Burger meat the “Caribou Barbie” way. 

Oh, wait. She missed four out of five shots. The feat of arms is featured on her cable TV  show on the Learning Channel. The show really was educational. We learned the truth about Sarah Palin The Mighty Hunter, anyway.

 

Bonus feature: Do You Have What it Takes? Caribou Tracking. Take the quiz!

 Update:  “Sarah Palin succeeded in doing the impossible this week … when she faced her biggest wildlife challenge to date — Kate Gosselin.” More from Kirkland Hamill here.

Word of the Year in a Year of Hate

November 16, 2010

Word of the Year in a Year of Hate

The New Oxford American Dictionary has announced the 2010 Word of the Year: Refudiate. The coinage, a conflation “repudiate” and “refute,” was used by former Temp-Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin to inflame religious intolerance and defend race hatred. Mrs. Palin, a scholarly former sportscaster who attended five colleges, one of them twice, used the word intentionally, first on the Sean Hannity Show and then in a famous tweet.

Sarah Palin, Mother of Our Nation

Sarah Palin, Mother of Our Nation

Former Alaska Temp-Governor Sarah Palin, whose five children include professional unwed teen mother Bristol and infantryman Track, faced Fox News fans at the Lincoln Memorial today and proclaimed:

“I’ve been asked to speak as the mother of a soldier, and I’m proud of that distinction. You know, say what you want to say about me but I raised a combat vet, and you can’t take that away from me.”

“No woman gives birth thinking she will hand over her child to her country, but that’s what mothers have done from ancient days.”

Mrs. Palin: Thank you for your cervix.

DC With Glenn Beck: Tea Party Tourism

DC With Glenn Beck: Tea Party Tourism

Glen Beck and his pals are observing the 47th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech next Saturday (August 28, 2010) by gathering at the Lincoln Memorial with the National Rifle Association. Very fitting, since President Lincoln and Rev. King were assassinated by gunshot.

Beck’s buddies are boldly standing up for something-or-other but, unlike 20 million other tourists each year, they’re scared stiff of Washington DC. Beck blogs warn them to avoid the Green and Yellow Metro lines where they might encounter rampaging hordes of junior high students and other urban horrors.

Palin School Speech

June 28, 2010

Palin School Speech

Former Temp-Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin delivered her long-awaited academic address at California State University at Stanislaus on Friday, raising $200,000 for a private foundation run by university employees. While the university’s books are open to the public, the foundation’s records are not. A bill before the state legislature seeks to correct that anomaly.

Ms. Palin entertained the $500-a-plate crowd by ridiculing the enterprising Stanislaus students who unearthed parts of her speaking contract in a campus dumpster. Sarah Palin would never have used such tactics at any of the five schools she attended in her six-year college career.

Palin’s Book-Like Object

May 17, 2010

Palin Book-Like Object

Sarah Palin, Former Temp-Governor of Alaska and failed vice presidential candidate, will have her name on another HarperCollins publication, America By Heart (original title: America By Heart and Gizzard). The publication date is November 23rd.

Unlike Mrs. Palin’s previous non-book, America by Heart will not be ghostwritten by Lynn Vincent but will be a collection of passages written by many authors, including some unable to protest inclusion of their work because they are dead. Mrs. Palin doesn’t read, of course, but will include words from her favorite songs, movies, sermons, and bumper stickers.

While Mrs. Palin may not be the most well-read politico in the country, her new title is appropriate. The lady’s got plenty of heart — in the meat locker.

College Speech by Scholarly Sarah Palin

College Speech by Scholarly Sarah Palin

On Friday, June 25th, California State University Stanislaus will mark its 50th anniversary the way any public college in a cash-strapped state would, with a $500-a-plate black tie dinner. The featured speaker: noted scholar Sarah Palin, failed vice presidential candidate and former Temp-Governor of Alaska. Mrs. Palin is the perfect college speaker, having attended five colleges in six years, one of them twice.

Voice in the Desert: Tea Sipppin' Sarah

The Woodstock of the Disgruntled was held last weekend in Searchlight, Nevada. Star of the shindig: former Temp-Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin. Appropriately, Mrs. Palin sounded quite shrill.

The best coverage of the event was by a media “Odd Couple,” Voice of America and Al Jazeera English.
