    Palin insult follow up. Her response(In case you didn’t catch it…):

    “Upon my return from an outstanding and productive trip to India and Israel, I’ve been inundated with requests to respond to petty comments made in the media the past few days, including one little fella’s comment which decent people would find degrading. (I won’t bother responding to it though, because it was made by he who reminds me of an annoying little mosquito found zipped up in your tent; he can’t do any harm, but buzzes around annoyingly until it’s time to give him the proverbial slap.)”

    Translation: She called him “An Insect”!!! ROTFL!!!

    News Flash! Just in from the Interwebtubes:
    Container Ships from China just docked in Long Beach. Contents? Free Dunce Caps and ‘Kick Me’ signs for the 69,456,897 morons, rubes, dupes, drones, suckers, high on Soma, Prolefeed brainwashed voters that elected the Dumb Bastard. One size fits all. The single file line starts right ‘over there’.

    Sad to hear about Geraldine’s passing. It seemed so sudden. I had no idea she was living with blood cancer.

    Thanks for all the links Tammy… so sad about Ferraro. And though I despise the federal land grabapalooza, the Gettysburg purchase is a good example, I think, of when it’s appropriate.
