I love Family Guy. And they just got a nomination for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics for this little number. Sarah Palin, were she in the Academy, would not vote for this, I assume.
I repeat the slogan “drill here, drill now” not out of naiveté or disregard for the tragic consequences of oil spills – my family and my state and I know firsthand those consequences. How could I still believe in drilling America’s domestic supply of energy after having seen the devastation of the Exxon-Valdez spill? I continue to believe in it because increased domestic oil production will make us a more secure, prosperous, and peaceful nation.
– Sarah Palin, doubling down on a failed approach. The current oil spill in the Gulf will dwarf the destruction of the Exxon Valez. We need a new, forward thinking, energy policy. Now.

That is Sarah Palin’s justification for writing her talking points on her hand.
My first five years of life we spent in Skagway, Alaska, right there by Whitehorse. Believe it or not — this was in the ’60s — we used to hustle on over the border for health care that we would receive in Whitehorse. I remember my brother, he burned his ankle in some little kid accident thing and my parents had to put him on a train and rush him over to Whitehorse and I think, isn’t that kind of ironic now. Zooming over the border, getting health care from Canada.
– Sarah Palin, supposedly opposed to government healthcare, speaking to Canadians. Ironic? That is not the word I would choose to describe it. It seemed to work pretty well for her then, huh?
From the LA Times:
FOR THE RECORD:
Sarah Palin: In some editions of Sunday’s Section A, an article about Sarah Palin’s speech to the National Tea Party Convention quoted her as saying, “How’s that hopey, changing stuff working out for you?” She said, “How’s that hopey, changey stuff working out for you?”
I’m glad they finally got the quote right. Calling it out again by way of correction is just too good. (h/t TPM)
There was a Sarah Palin-Rick Perry rally in Texas on Sunday. The usual crown of intellectuals was in attendance. More photos here via The Houston Press.
The above picture is very much like this classic from the last presidential election:
Sarah Palin has frequently criticized President Obama’s use of a teleprompter. At least with a teleprompter nothing is hidden to those in the room.
But check out Sarah Palin’s low-tech iPad:
Oh yes, she is ready to be President.
More details and a closer shot here.
No, the headline is not a joke.
I think it is a good thing. That way we can watch two Fox News commentators wing-out over the coming months. The more entertaining will, of course, be Glenn Beck, but Palin won’t be far behind.
Following the turkey pardon, Palin gave this interview with some very unfortunate background slaughter.
