Palin is a "ZERO bar" - white on the outside, nuts on the inside
The ZERO candy bar, introduced in 1920, is a candy bar composed of a combination of caramel, peanut and almond nougat covered with a layer of white fudge. Its outwardly white color, an unusual color for a candy bar, has become its trademark.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zero_Bar


Palin is another candidate from the "black ops" shop that gave us Clarence Thomas. A phony, stealth candidate with a huge chip on the shoulder about their extreme positions.

We need a shorthand for this stealthiness. I propose the Zero Bar. It is a well-known candy, even to older people. The "zero" is perfect for Palin; in fact, its perfect for fundies in general.

Comments?

1. It will be interesting to discover what connection her husband's
oil business has had in Alaska, and how it fits into the Whitehouse.

3. She believes that T-Rex and Raptors were on Noah's Ark, as all Creationists do
and, get this, they were vegetarians!

17. Palin is a Creationist, and believes Creationism should be taught in public schools
John McCain's vice-presidential pick, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, is an evangelical Protestant with a strong record of opposition to abortion and an openness to teaching creationism in the public schools

http://www.boston.com/news/local/articles_of_faith/2008...

And from that pantheon of irrational beliefs known as the Creation Museum in Cincinnati, Ohio:

6 PM: Adventurers! Join Buddy Davis, Ark explorer, and hear the exciting story of his Search for Noahs Ark on Mt. Ararat. You will also learn facts about Noahs Ark according to Gods Word and find answers to questions like: How big was Noahs Ark? What did the Ark really look like? What is gopher wood? Was there enough room for all of the animals on the Ark? Were dinosaurs on the Ark? How did they fit? Learn the answers to these and many more questions about the most famous ship the world has ever known, Noahs Ark. In this one hour workshop, you will have fun sculpting a Parasaurolophus dinosaur head with museum dinosaur sculptor, Buddy Davis. Through music, learn about the fossil record and see if you can guess some of the animal sounds Noah may have heard on the Ark. Come join the adventure, in The Search for Noahs Ark!

Adam and Eve live in the Garden of Eden. Children play and dinosaurs roam near Edens Rivers.

20. Before Jurassic Park, Creationists claimed that fossils were a demonic deception
somewhere, somehow, Satan was manufacturing fossils to mislead the faithful into thinking the Earth was older than 5,000 years of age.

After Jurassic Park, it was no longer possible for Creationists to claim dinosaurs never existed, so they decided to put them smack in the middle of the Garden of Eden, and aboard Noah's Ark.

9. I think of her as a red-neck Princess.
She expects the world to gush over her because she can pop out babies without a second thought, is pretty, is as conniving as Rush Limpballs and is as mean as Ann Coulter (but she hides it behind fake smiles and crocodile tears).

Don't get in her way cause she can shoot and is not squeamish about killing cubs. She expects the world, and everyone in it, to do as she says and wont hesitate to pretend to be a victim when the circumstances warrant. In her white male dominated world, the boys let her in cause she gives the veneer of equality to the good old boys running the show.

But make no mistake, she expects the boys to take care of her and if they don't, watch out.
