The strangest story in the news today might be a once-obscure governor from Alaska claiming it impossible that an obscure, anti-Muslim film trailer could spark riots in the Middle East.
Has half-term, former 49th state Gov. Sarah Palin been so overwhelmed by her new-found status as national talking head and celebrity politician that she’s forgotten where from she came? Has her brain been wiped of the years, not all that long ago, when she served in the almost inconsequential job of mayor of Wasilla before the unsuccessful bid for Alaska lieutenant governor? Has she lost sight of how little time she actually spent as Alaska governor before the earth shifted?
If so, maybe she should Google the phrase, “plucked Palin from obscurity.”
Palin is a testimonial to the strange ways in which the world works.
