One of the worst aspects of losing an important election, like the failed recall of Scott Walker in Wisconsin yesterday, is that the event itself puts air in the lungs of totally failed politicians and reactionary news hacks like Sarah Palin of Alaska. The windbag from the Arctic Circle, who could not even summon the work ethic to serve out her one term as governor, is suddenly inflated by the news out of Wisconsin - and is zipping around aimlessly and spewing her gases - like balloon that has just been set free. Fortunately, like a runaway balloon, no one will pay attention to her for long. Part of Sarah's charm is her almost instant forgetability.
The effervescent Ms. Palin, sporting a new pair of glasses that were designed, no doubt, to present her as an intellectual, went on Fox News (where else!) to offer her carefully reasoned and eloquent assessment that President Obama's "goose is cooked."
Sarah, you are right about the menu, though not about the particular fowl. A goose was cooked, but it belonged to the people of Wisconsin - and they cooked it themselves. The President's bird is still flying high, Sweetie, and the Koch brothers don't have the money or the brains to get it into a deep fryer.
How's your own goose doing, Caribou Barbie? Oh, that's right, Obama and Biden cooked it four years ago - and it was delicious!
