Diana Moon- Glampers
This is a photo of Sarah Palin’s hand Friday when she was taking pre-approved questions after her $100,000.00 speech at the Tea Baggers Convention.
In her speech speech she mocked President Obama for using a teleprompter when delivering speeches. (Every president since Dwight D. Eisenhower has used them.) The crowd there loved her and chanted “run Sarah run” when she spoke about the 2012 presidential race.
I happened to see that this story was on the Yahoo Buzzlog today. (I rarely look at Yahoo –“You Always Have Other Options”) It ought to give her supporters pause to see her cribbing like a fourth grader on test day. Makes me wonder if I ever bought a book that I knew was ghost-written. Palin did; her PAC purchased thousands of copies of “Going Rouge.”
William Kristol, Fred Barnes, and then John McCain have a lot to answer for, foisting this empty head on American politics, after eight years of George Bush no less. I wonder if Jerzy Kosinsky foresaw this when he wrote “Being There” in 1971. Is this how America ends up? Voting for leaders like it was American Idle? Reminds me of that bumper sticker, “My kid beat up your honor student.” In Kurt Vonnegut’s story Harrison Bergeron, the country is ruled by Handicapper General Diana Moon- Glampers, the most average person in the entire country. Maybe Vonnegut was on to something too.
(Note: The Moonglampers is also the name of Charly Hoarse's favorite back-up band.)
