You Go, Girls

- Sarah Palin admits reading her book, compares it to Obama’s Nobel speech. [USA Today]

- “And when they got back to Tiger’s plush apartment at the MGM casino, the golfer scored another birdie with her.” [Sun UK]
Projection, the gift that keeps on, er, projecting.
Good for her. Can we start calling her Jennifer now?
as I said earlier. I will become interested in the Tiger thing when the pics start surfacing.
@Capt Howdy: Give it time to unfold. If we started with Nekkid Cellphone Pix, where would the story go from there?
@Capt Howdy: That’s the Great Blasian Whale, and it’s out there. But first we must endure the tease.
When will it break that Bachmann is fluent in French and studied at the Sorbonne? Just watch for it.
the Lovely Bones is getting what sounds like some hilariously clueless reviews but I may see it this weekend anyway.
and I just saw the Cohens A Serious Man.
wonderful back to their roots Cohen brothers.
Sarah Palin admits reading her book, compares it to Obama’s Nobel speech.
Yes, both were full of…oh, nevermind. I said I would make an effort. So I will not linque to Matt Taibbi’s latest in Rolling Stone. (Got it at Greenwald anyway, probably some of you have seen it already…?)
@nojo: That’s “Cablinasian”, pal.
tj/ so have our fundie/tbaggist friends reverted back to the unicameral mind so’s that they hear from God directly?
@nojo: Maybe Stinque.com can interview someone that Tiger Wood’s didn’t sleep with. We could send an investigative team to the rail yards in Camden.
@redmanlaw: That’s “Cablinasian”, pal.
Take it up with Tiger — his self-description.
@Pedonator: Jon Stewart outed Gretchen Carlson as a Mensa-qualifier, so we’re halfway there.
A term Tiger Woods himself made up. It is a portmanteau of Caucasian, Black, American-Indian, and Asian, which is his ethnic make-up of a quarter Chinese, a quarter Thai, a quarter Black, an eighth Native American and an eighth Dutch.
Tiger Woods is Cablinasian
per urban dictionary
@nojo: Yeah, I figured Gretchen must have been inspired to her academic successes by her nanny.
@Capt Howdy: The author of Blasian Baby Notes might take issue with Tiger “making up” the term.
And speaking as a Swedo-Italo-Wightian, you reach a point where you throw in the towel and go with “mutt”.
as an anglo-german-welsh-nativeamerican I second that
@Capt Howdy: Playgirl is said to be negotiating for a real live picture of Tiger’s wood itself, the chicks say its ginormous, too. Its twoo, its twoo.
@nojo: I’m a mutt, but solidly half-Kraut, which confused the hell out of the Germans (“One of your parents is from here? No?”).
enough with the teasing. I need images.
Allegedly pure Korean, but with some Japanese and Mongol ancestors that the family doesn’t like to talk about.
Maybe it’s just me, but I’ve never been a fan of the “pure” blood especially since I learned at the age of six that the Egyptian Royal Family’s family tree was a straight line. Bleah.
@nojo: The expression is ‘happy mongrel’
or in manchus case ‘happy Mongol’
@Capt Howdy: Do you have a license for that pun?
Do the Koreans really follow this kind of thing closely generally? I was struck one day a year or two back, working in Seoul, sitting with the CTO of a software company and in retelling his family history he traced it back to a Mongol heritage that was in part indicated by his blood type. I thought it was interesting he knew this biological marker but can’t really say if is a precipitate of cultural proclivities or just the engineer’s eye for detail at work.
@ManchuCandidate: Mongol ancestors that the family doesn’t like to talk about.
I preferred the Ticonderogas to the Mongols.
Depends on the family. Yang-ban (Nobles) make family ancestors a fetish as we have a family book that records the exploits/lineage of various generations. Both my maternal and paternal families have their books, but being a bit seckist they don’t record any mention of females, only males.
When the Mongols invaded Korea, they forced many Korean nobles to marry Mongol Princesses.
I can recite a large chunk of my family’s history only because it is somewhat more public and can be found in Korean history books as I can trace my lineage back to the first “Emperor” of the Yi Dynasty (14th Century) and Emperor/King Sejong (19 times Great Uncle), the guy who organized the drive to “invent” Hangul or the Korean Alphabet (note: I didn’t say he invented) but whose family line abruptly ended three generations later due to human intervention (aka assassination.)
As I’ve said before, it’s just trivia these days.
BREAKING HARD: Tiger is quitting golf indefinitely.
