POSTED RESPONSE TO A COLUMN BY REX MURPHY IN TORONTO'S GLOBE AND MAIL
She connects with a fair number of male couch beer-swillers who consider her a "hot babe."
She connects with the gun nuts.
She connects with the trailer-park and fuzzy-dice set.
She connects with the lobotomy cases of the religious right.
She connects with all the xenophobes in America who have no use for "damned fureigners."
God that's a lot of people in America, and she is a very dangerous woman.
Apart from Sarah Palin's dozens of ridiculous errors and misstatements plus a demonstrated tendency towards abuse of power, two facts stand out like the great rocks of the Straits of Gibraltar for me.
One, Sarah took six years at five different colleges before she finally earned her BA in a bird subject like "communications."
Two, the woman quit her elected job as governor of one of the least populated states in America, yet told us she was not a quitter.
The woman is simply a joke, but then so was Bush, and look what that moron gave the world.
America seems to have a boundless appetite for this kind of insipid daytime-talk show politics.
