This blog is still alive, just in semi-hibernation.
When I want to write something longer than a tweet about something other than math or sci-fi, here is where I'll write it.

Squinkiness!


This word brought to us by the inimitable Princess Sparkle Pony.

That was my impression. She was doin' the cute in ways that Tina Fey would say, "Naw, I'm not goin' there. That's over the top."

She sees the world in black and white, with a wink and a squink and a golly, you betcha!

Of course, it's all about the corruption on Wall Street and bein' a maverick and bein' Manichean, even if you're not quite sure what that means.

By golly.

Say, did you hear the part where she said that Wall Street's problems are going to be solved by "MASSIVE OVERSIGHT"? How come her fans aren't talking about that one?

And two seconds after she called for MASSIVE OVERSIGHT she called for a much smaller government.

What huh?

I tried to explain to my husband this morning that weird thing she did when she'd lower the tone of her voice and lay that godawful accent on real thick. It was creepy. The squinkiness was like a cherry on the top of a very creepy sundae.

Jess hit on something I'd forgotten to write down--the MASSIVE OVERSIGHT despite the chopping down of the government. Eeeww, she also noted the low-talker moments. ICK! Palin disgusts me, squinkyness and all, y'know!

"A man (or woman) may smile and smile and be a villain." Or the tool of villains. I don't give a damn what they SAY. It's what they've DONE. I couldn't stomach watching all of it. She creeps me out and the thought that tons of the party faithful are falling for the act - even if their savings are falling faster than the Dow, their sons and daughters are dying in the desert and our country is on the brink of another great depression - well, I don't have words for it.

Palin has narrowed herself down to what kind of Conservative she is. She's a sex-obsessed religious conservative who doesn't like taxes unless of course those taxes are being funneled to the people in her state. And paying for her travel and for her to sleep in her own bed and her husband's travel. And don't forget the kids. Those taxes are okay because that's other people paying her way. I wonder what her health plan is like as Governor of Alaska? And they pay her $125,000 per year salary.

Nope, she HATES taxes. And Democrats. She's not that fond of them either, whatever it is that THEY stand for.

Okay, I admit, I have absolutely no idea what "Manichean" means.

Matty Boy said...

Hey, Ed. Manichean means a world view that splits things into a battle between good and evil. Bush and his Axis of Evil would be a good example, or should I say an instructive example.
