Sheer effrontery

I was making a preliminary pass through the logs last night for Monday-morning search-engine fodder, when I happened upon this Yahoo! Answers query:

Does Sarah Palin ever wear nylons or tights?

Of the proffered answers, the one getting the nod was this: “Probably … but you have to get close enough to tell.”

Which seemed reasonable enough, I suppose. I note with some amusement that five Web links were given, two of which came back here, which explains why I saw it.

Then again, I also happened upon a TV Guide interview with Tina Fey, quoted in The Week, in which this was said:

When I first saw her, I didn’t think we looked alike at all. She’s got these super-straight white teeth and she’s got this really even caramel tan. She’s got legs for days.

And, well, we are talking the Land of the Midnight Sun.

Conclusion: If she is wearing them, it’s not to conceal flaws.

    And that matters? The woman has no brain.

    (1) Peripherally, as it were.

    (2) Methinks were I constantly bombarded with questions ranging from irrelevant to hostile, I could sound pretty dumb myself.

    Because of course it’s so easy to take on a corrupt establishment in your own party and kick it repeatedly in the slats until leading members resign and one has to pay a hefty fine, that even a brainless dolt can do it.

    Because of course it’s so easy to take on an established and well-funded incumbent governor of your own party in the Republican primary and beat him like a rented mule, that even a brainless dolt can do it.

    Because of course it’s so easy to take on the most popular Democrat in your state in the fall election and beat the living snot out of him, that even a brainless dolt can do it.

    Seems to me that what’s so easy only a brainless dolt can do it, is to believe evil, lying partisan crap about someone without bothering to check the facts. It’s starting to get on my nerves just a little.
