Literary References We Strongly Doubt Sarah Palin Knows Anything About


@Dodgerblue: I want to see the scene where she eats a bug.

I’ve eaten several bugs recently, mostly due to the face-level gnat clouds I keep biking through. Not really the same thing, of course.

@nojo: It would be tough to top the turkey-slaughtering video. She set the bar pretty high with that.

Maybe she has a collection of comics of the classics?

For bonus points, imagine any modern Republican voting for the ADA – as 30+ did in the Senate when they passed it in 1990.

The Tweet when she accepts the Teabaggers’ nomination in 2012: “And yes I said yes I will yes.”

A young black bear ambled across the far lawn this evening. Watched him scrounge around then leave to head up the hill. Dogs did brave barking. I saw him watching from the trees. Then he saw me and went further off. Rarely see them but know they’re around. Total thrill. Then watched Fanny and Alexander. Thrill times two.

That would be “all literary references,” Alex.

@Mistress Cynica: I always think of Sally Kellerman when I hear that.

@TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ: “Why don’t you call me sometime when you have no class?”

@Benedick: Do you think he was friendly? Like, you know, pose for a photograph or something?

@FlyingChainSaw: I’ll talk to his agent.

We so rarely see them although they do leave notes behind; shit on the grass; broken bird feeders; parts of chewed-up deer carcasses (popular with dogs). It’s maybe my third sighting in 10 years. Perhaps he’s taken up residence nearby in which case we might see more of him. He’s about the size of a Lab right now. But he’ll end up about the size of baked’s baby-monster.

Threadjack: Tony Hayward banished to Siberia. I guess he’ll do anything to get beyond the reach of process.

However, JNOV may get her wish. Pottsylvania is in the neighborhood, so Boris and Natasha should be sharpening their knives.

@Walking Still: So he’s reporting to Fearless Leader?

In this context, Boris and Natasha represent the forces of good seeking vengance – hopefully with more success than they had with Moose and Squirrel.

I see Tony as combining the least attractive qualities of Snidely Whiplash, Cpt. Peter “Wrongway” Peachfuzz, and one of those ineffectual kings in a Fractured Fairy Tale.

But maybe I’m overthinking this just a smidge.

However, I do like the fact that the new head of BP (our friend Mr. Dudley) used to have the Russia job that Tony is getting, until his Russian “friends” literally ran him out of the country.

Fun times for Tony.

@Walking Still:

“Do you know how vee keep varm in Russia, Tonee?”
