She winked at me. Several times. Sarah Palin, aka Sweet Thang, winked at me through the television camera during the debate. She’s so cute.
What a flirt.
But, Sweet Thang plays by her own rules. And she darned well wasn’t going to play by the moderator’s silly rules. She did not answer many questions and, instead, answered questions that only she could hear. That’s slick. She’s slick. Ask her a question—any question – and she’ll tell you about energy. Just like the Energizer Bunny. Sweet Thang makes a good bunny. Yes, I know that’s sexist but she started it. Beauty Queen.
Sweet Thang said she wants the little ole Constitution to give her more powers as vice president. She means she wants control of the U.S. Senate. She got the idea from Dick Cheney. I told you she was smart. Smartest Beauty Queen of all.
In a yet-unnamed morning newspaper, Sweet Thang probably read the bad news about the jobless report. It’s not “looking backward” if you read it real quick, hon.
“The government is out with more bad economic news this morning: The job market began to deteriorate even before the financial crisis reached a more serious stage two weeks ago.
“Employers cut 159,000 jobs in September, more than twice as many as in August or July, the Labor Department reported. It was the biggest monthly decline since 2003, when the economy was still losing jobs in the wake of the 2001 recession.
“Forecasters had been expecting a loss of about 100,000 jobs in September.
“The new number was especially worrisome because the government conducted its survey during the week of Sept. 8, before the credit crisis took a new turn for the worse on Sept. 17.”
But don’t you worry your pretty little head about it, Sweet Thang. Maverick is going to get money from Cowboy to give to Wall Street and it will surely trickle down. You follow? No? Heck. Let’s get a six-pack and talk about energy. Drill, baby, drill.
