The Jet Set

Sarah Palin gives a speech in Calgary:
"Our country so appreciates our neighbour to our north," she said launching into one of many of such sweeping passages. "And we Alaskans like to think we share a special bond with our Canadian friends, we have a love of good hunting and good fishing. And great hockey. And we understand the importance of developing our energy resources. We understand the inherent link between energy and security, and energy and prosperity, and energy and freedom. And we understand how important it is to do it responsibly and to keep our part of the world safe and secure."
So is this the first time she's been in Canada or what?

The real question is: what did she have written on her hand(s)?

That's it? That's idiot bimbo's platform for the US Presidency in 2012? Hunting, Fishing, Hockey and Fossil Fuels? Gee, what could possibly go wrong with that?

I think Jay Leno has shown us the way forward.

EVERY Sarah Palin appearance should be accompanied by a lught track.

If I'm not mistaken, Calgary is the same place that George W. Bush was welcomed with open arms, so there's that.

I am given to understand that the rest of Canada holds Alberta with the same regard that the rest of the U.S. holds, say, Mississippi.

Substance McGravitas said...

Calgary's where the offices for the oilfields are. I would be very surprised if the audience wasn't stuffed with Americans, but Palin's lunacy is reflected in the current rebellion in Alberta's Tory ranks led by Danielle Smith.

I'd be shocked if Alberta wasn't in far better shape than Mississippi in each and every way but barbeque, but that's the way it goes when you have the oil.

...more like Texas

Substance McGravitas said...

Better said, but my experiences in Texas made me think it was pure hell outside Austin.

Good food if you were lacking weight.

The devil's excrement. That shit is a curse.

mikey said...

Well, at least the Devil appears to be quite regular. Those dinosaurs musta been packed with fiber...

Mr. Wonderful said...

I wish someone had said, "'Our neighbor to the north'? But Canada is mainly south of Alaska. Why do you hate Canadians but love North Polesians (or, alt., North Pole-ocks, etc.)?"

Substance McGravitas said...

Regarding the devil's excrement, Alberta has at least had the foresight to save for a rainy day. It's as respectable as conservatism can get.
