An hysterically funny article on Governor Grifter
Edited on Mon Dec-08-08 07:56 PM by malaise
I've wondered about the reactions of the individual contributors to the RNC.

An ordinary citizen, concerned about gays getting married, or the right to buy cop killer bullets, sent in $100 from his minimum wage job of changing tires. "Joe the Tire Changer" bought fresh panties for the Vice-Presidential nominee? I'm sure he's comforted thinking he got that close to the pretty Palin...but his wife might not feel that way. Her panties come in the multi pack, three colors from Wal-Mart.

A part time worker, full time Red-Stater, a woman who uses L'Oreal "because she's worth it," and believes that Miss Clairol box color 519 is her God given natural hair color. She pulled $100 out of her "in case I get sick" coffee can fund and sent it to the RNC when her church secretary sent her that email about Barack Hussein Obama being a Godless Muslim. I guess she made a dent in Sarah Palin's $68,000 make-up bill, $42,615 hair-do bill, and $54,900 stylist bill. Maybe Sarah could explain to Ms. Red-Stater what a stylist is.

Alaska Grifter Total: $85,798
VP Grifter Total: $330,000
Total Grifter Total: $415,798

Count on the Palinistas to line up and defend the grifting. The per diem abuse has been dismissed by her staff with comparisons to former Governor Frank Murkowski. That's like comparing a bad bartender to Jim Jones' Guyana Kool-Aid Stand and drinking up.

It is never Sarah Palin's bad judgment or poor decisions that get her press. It's always the fault of someone else.

And so the drips continue...and a stalactite status icicle hangs in front of Alaskans. Sarah Palin is the "gift" that keeps on taking.

1. If anyone should know it would be an Alaskan. I think it is so appropriate

that everyone is picking up that "grifter" meme. That is exactly what she is. I read somewhere that she was reminiscent of the Minnie Driver character in the TV series "The Riches".

In case you are not familiar with it, here is a plot summary from IMDB. It does not mention that the family is assuming the identity of a family that was killed on the highway in front of them.

Wayne and Dahlia Malloy spent their youth pulling cons with a traveling band of modern Irish gypsies roaming about the US. Now years later, Wayne hits a spiritual and midlife crisis and begins to question their lifestyle just as his wife, newly sprung from prison, rejoins the family. They decide to finally settle down in suburbia where they battle to live a normal life while trying to escape their former friends.
