More About Sarah Palin

Lots of people are searching for more information about McCain’s pick for Vice Presidential candidate, Sarah Palin. Here are a few interesting links:

  • An open letter from Anne Kilkenny, a Wasilla, Alaska resident.
  • “So Sambo beat the bitch!” This is how a waitress reports that Sarah Palin greeted the news that Obama had received enough votes to win the Democratic Primary.
  • Some fact checking of Palin’s speech at the RNC, and excerpts from other RNC speeches
  • Palin’s speech included the line, “I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a community organizer—except that you have actual responsibilities.” This was a dig at Obama’s community work with the Catholic Campaign for Human Development. The RNC crowd seemed to think it was funny, but Palin apparently doesn’t realize that women’s suffrage came about as a result of ‘community organizers.’ Martin Luther King was a ‘community organizer.’

To wrap up with a little humor, I haven’t watched the Late Show in a long time, but Jay Leno has apparently been offering up a few gems lately:

  • “Governor Sarah Palin gave her speech tonight at the GOP Convention, and it gave people who didn’t know anything about her the chance to finally meet her, you know, like John McCain.”
  • “I gotta admit, she looked very comfortable at the podium ’cause it’s kinda like Alaska: you look out on that convention floor, nothing but white as far as the eye can see.”
  • “I don’t know if you noticed this, but at the GOP convention, the cameramen are desperately trying to find minorities in the audience they could zoom in on, ’cause this is what they do. Finally, after an hour, they found one. It was a Presbyterian standing in a group of Methodists.”
