Aww, give Sarah a break....

....'cuz she's just a gurrrllll. And that meltdown in the Katie Couric interview? She's just appealing to her Pentecostal base by speaking in tongues.

But never mind: Sarah is OK, 'cuz she's got character. And what, you may ask, is this "character" quality? I'm not sure, but it doesn't seem to include telling the truth or understanding anything about the job. It doesn't seem to preclude hanging out with lunatic clergy (unless of course, it's the other guy's lunatic clergy).

But none of that matters, 'cuz if you've got character[tm], when push comes to shove, and the chips are down, and your back's to the wall, and the crick is rising, and the rubber is meeting the road, and the cliches are coming thick and fast: you'll do the Right Thing.

So I'm still not real clear on this "character" thing, but I have a vague impression it has something to do with shooting Muslims. Or maybe moose. They probably look the same through the 'scope of Sarah's rifle.

There is a place somewhere far, far past mere partisan incompetence, somewhere far, far beyond mere cliched vapidity. We call this magical realm 'Gyapongland'.

Thanks for sharing all of these links with us on monday. Modays always seem to be drag. Yet some of these links made me laugh. Thanks for making me laugh. I really needed it. I will try to visit your blog as often as I can. Keep up the fantastic job you do with your blog.

if "character" is the thesis, "corruption" (which is pervading the politics on Capital Hill) is the antithesis; I think that's what the term is being used for

Used by whom? I'm referring to a particular blogger's use of the term, and I'm having trouble associating that with what I think of when I hear the term "character". Stuff like honesty (which Palin seems to lacking in anyway -- seen the latest about Troopergate?), decency, etc.
