Meanwhile, far from Wasilla

From the last time I had anything to say on this particular subject:

The very first post I did about Sarah Palin was in early 2007, when she was so far under the radar she’d practically have to wear ridiculous shoes to be seen.

I gather she’s probably enjoying her less-than-household-word status these days, and on the basis of current evidence, I’m pretty sure her tastes in Wacky Footwear have changed not a whit. From a Friday appearance at a forum at Southeastern University in Lakeland, Florida:

Sarah Palin at Southeastern University

Now historically, I’ve argued that if you have legs like that you should be able to wear any damn shoes you want, and I’m sure that this bondage boot, or whatever it is, is not often seen on college campuses affiliated with the Assemblies of God; but after keeping a close eye on Sarah for six years, I’m thinking that she got into the habit of wearing things like this specifically because it annoyed the hell out of John McCain, and really, who hasn’t wanted to annoy the hell out of John McCain?

(With thanks to The Ledger.)

    Typical democrat. Full of hate, but with no substance.

    I too have followed Governor Palin since 2007, long before most of America knew who she was. What I found was an incredibly competent Governor, who had been the best Mayor in her state, and in fact, headed the Conference of Mayors in Alaska.

    She was also chosen by the other 49 state governors to head their National Governors Association’s Natural Resources Committee. Why? Because of her expertise in the field of energy and the environment.

    Here is a list of Palin’s accomplishments as Alaska’s Chief Executive. It’s from the same website you pilfered that image from, without attribution.

    So to wrap up, not only are you a hate-mongering, misogynistic democrat loser, you are a thief.

    Ah c’mon, dustbury. What’s the point of this silly article? It’s not as if this governor had appeared in front of elementary school kids dressed in a shiny hoochie mamma outfit stretched over thunder thighs and humongous hips…all while representing our nation. And remember Ms McCain photographed in a bar showing the world both London and France? Shoes are a harmless girl thing…criticize them at your own risk.

    Oh, it was definitely silly, no question about that. But shoes are a side interest around here, and have been for several years. And while I adore Sarah, and while I continue to believe that had she been on top of the GOP ticket in ’08 instead of that invertebrate McCain she’d have won, I’ve seldom seen anyone more in need of a wardrobe consultant. (Except, of course, for myself.)

    Gary P. obviously didn’t bother to click any of the links in the post.

    Or anywhere else around here; he was too busy denouncing me on Twitter. I explained to him the definition of “unattributed,” and left him there to stew in his own bodily fluids. He’s happier that way, and I’m all about the happiness.

    Mr Jackson decided he had something to add to this conversation. He did not. He does, however, now have zero permission to appear here.
