It’s a lazy, slow news day here on the Last Frontier. I did, however, find some interesting Gallup poll numbers which are shown above.
That’s right. When Republicans contemplate the woman who has the highest negatives of any prominent member of their party, the one who lost the election for John McCain, and the one who finds new and innovative ways to push the limits of embarrassing behavior on an almost daily basis, what do they think? Almost 8 out of 10 of them think to themselves, “Why THAT’s the gal for me!” I can’t help but think that the other 2 out of 10, those I like to refer to as the “sane” Republicans, have to be doing some major soul searching about now.
I picture them all stricken, walking out of their houses in the morning, getting in their cars and driving for a long time to somewhere out in the desert. There, they fast and drink only spring water for two days, as they cleanse themselves of Fox News and Rush Limbaugh. After much burning of sage and other mysterious detoxifying rituals, they emerge from their vision quest with the solemn understanding that their party has abandoned them, and they are faced with the realization that in order to achieve inner and outer harmony, they must become Independents or Democrats, or perhaps for the adventurous few, Whigs. And with a sad, nostalgic and disbelieving look, they take one final glance back at the 8 out of 10, and leave them to collapse under the weight of their own delusion.
But that’s just me.
