Welcome to Issue #2 of the Carnival of Political Humor and Commentary! This issue is devoted to the Political Queen of Gaffes, Sarah Palin, and we have some great articles to tickle your funny bone, make you think, and scare the pants off you at the thought of the country in her gun-totin’, moose skinnin’ hands.
Mudflats has written one of the best metaphorical articles on the subject I have seen, served up with a heaping helping of well written wit. An excellent read for the Halloween season, as it is a bone-chilling comparison to current Palin-tics. Excerpt:
“Even though she’s wearing a $3000 polar bear fur jacket and $400 designer snow boots, under all that, she’s really just like us.
Absolutely hilarious, must-read satirical depiction of Ms. Palin’s campaign to be ‘just like us’, by diggityK. Excerpt:
“In her latest attempt to portray herself as a “real American” hockey mom who supports average joes such as Six Pack and the Plumber, Governor Palin is now bargain hunting with the masses.”
4WRD THNKN Dad brings us a short but amusing article on Sarah Palin’s latest fashion choice. Excerpt:
“She divorced herself from the $150,000 wardrobe and put on some Alaskan thrift store jeans. Now the hunt will be on to find out who was the original owner of the jeans.”
Another short but funny bit, citing Monty Python’s Flying Circus, on the Palin Clothing Fiasco ’08, by Politicalamity.
The Backchannel Blog brings us another clever commentary on the much talked about clothing of the republican VP pick. Excerpt:
“At this point, criticizing Sarah Palin is like beating a dead moose.”
And that’s it for this issue. Happy reading!
