    So reading her quote form the Jonathan Martin piece, does that mean she regrets the “lipstick on a pig” bullshit? Sounds like it to me…..

    sheesh, if not for “the blogoshphere” i doubt caribou barbie’s future as a reality show hostess/dancing with the stars contestant and such, would be so bright.

    Oh, and Kerry would suck. Look at that. Barry hasn’t even won yet and I’m trashing him. Anyway. Everyone in the world would have a better time with Bill Richardson than with John Kerry. Plus, an early foreign policy win with Latin America would be nice. A sane Cuba policy, some market-based samba, and a decent immigration policy. Kerry?

    Dumber than a bag of hammers. And who really thought she was the least bit hot? Have standards fallen that low?

    I wonder how long it will take for the rest of the world to stop laughing.

  5. Detective Bunk

    Anyone have a good bingo/drinking game for this evening? I have some booze I need to burn off.

  6. freakishlystrong

    In all seriousness, if it weren’t for the blogosphere, *shudder, I would never had made it through this whole goddamn nightmare we call elections in this country, that said, by blogosphere I mean Wonkette. Y’all rock…

  7. stew

    The only endorsement that matters: Lead singer for Whitesnake supports Obama/pissed at McCain for using one of his forgotten songs. No word yet on how Tawney whatsername plans to vote.

    [re=164091]Godot[/re]: Obama and Zakaria in the same administration? I just had a nerdgasam. Obama has to make this happen and make all the nerd girls happy.

    [re=164107]charrington[/re]: I’d hit that, go have a mocha latte, vote, check my e-mail, then come back and hit it again.

    MyFriends may come
    MyFriends may go
    MyFriends may Palin out. Ya know.
    But we’ll be MyFriends thru Sick or Sin.
    Palin-it-out or Palin-it-in.

    Bye Sarah Louise Godzilla from Wasilla.

    [re=164109]Godot[/re]: He is a handsome muslin/Pakistani/non-feather Indian type of fellow. His teeth are like glow-in-the-dark white. I love watching him on GPS but could care less what those white dorks are yakking about.

  12. blinky_twinkie

    [re=164113]JohnnyMeatworth[/re]: I was just thinking that! Well, that and “dumber than a sack of hair…”

  13. queeraselvis v 2.0

    Hmmm. Sarah has a great respect for journalism, eh? Loosely translated, this means: “Katie Couric would be the first one I shipped to Gitmo, if it weren’t for those meddling voters.”

  14. Kwame'

    [re=164109]Godot[/re]: I am quite fond of Fareed, but he has teeth like the voodoo doll in “Trilogy of Terror”.

    O.P.R.A.H. has already chosen her ceremonial muumuu for Obama’s Eyes Wide Shut-themed inauguration.

    ZMOGZ TEHRE’S GONA BE SO MUCH HAWT INTERRACIAL ACTION!!!!!

    ‘she explained, adding that she’d like to help improve the profession because she has “great respect for the world of journalism.”’

    Urgh – My head just ‘spolded.

    The store’s owners had hung a red banner reading “Palin Fever” by the drive-thru window.

    Palin Fever! Catch it!…and die.

    This presidential election was a hell of a lot more fun than the past two. And if the blogosphere was laughing AT Sarah not WITH her, that’s a burden we can easily handle.

    Joe the Plumber, Ashley, Sarah, Levi, Todd. The GOP provided a sit-com cast. Oh, and we are oh-so-close to finding how the story ends.

  19. Maus

    “she’d like to help improve the profession because she has “great respect for the world of journalism.”

    That’s why she spent fifteen years getting an undergrad journalism degree, it all makes so much sense.

    # Palin, stopping at some Alaskan pet shop called the “Mocha Moose,” told reporters that her only regret this election is “the blogosphere.”

    My only regret is that I did not insult that bitch more.

  21. OzoneTom

    Ghod forbid that a modern-day Republican would take any personal responsibility for failure.

    But I am quite giddy to have actually exchanged messages with people who have disappointed that silly wanker.

    Keep up the good work.
