I’m still shaking my head about this one. Scarf-gate? Not since Rachael Ray, and her “terrorist scarf,” have there been so many raised eyebrows over a piece of neckware. Sarah Palin was seen today at a rally in Reno, Nevada, according to Newsweek, wearing a very patriotic silk scarf with the word “Vote” on it….flanked by rows and rows of (wait for it) Democratic donkeys! This may truly be one of my favorite moments of her campaign. It’s clear that she (and perhaps her RNC professional shopper) does not know that the donkey is the symbol of the Democratic Party. After the discovery that she still does not know the basic job description of the Vice President, this shouldn’t surprise us. And alas, now that the donkey’s out of the bag, she probably won’t be wearing it again, but thanks to the magic of the internet, you can click HERE for the stunning visual.
One more reason to like Barack Obama. He wouldn’t show up at a campaign event in an elephant tie.
And here’s this little snippet from Palin during a CNN interview today with Drew Griffin.
So, finally Joe the plumber and as we talked about today in the speech, too, he’s representing, you know, Jane the engineer and Molly the dental hygienist and Chuck the teacher and, and all these good, hard-working Americans who are, finally, were able to hear in very plain talk the other night, what Barack Obama’s intentions were to redistribute wealth.
For anyone who wants to impress their friends with their erudite knowledge of Sarah Palin trivia, “Molly the dental hygienist” is a reference to Sarah’s sister, Molly (Wooten) McCann, the ex-troopergate-wife, and “Chuck the teacher” is her father, Chuck Heath. Jane the engineer? I’m still working on that one.
