Glen Beck: Sarah Palin yapping in the kitchen

This is going to be so much fun.

First Sarah Palin says it’s a “hoot” to hear people talking about her teaming up with Glenn Beck for a 2012 presidential campaign. She flirted with such a notion but demurred on a definitive answer. “Glenn Beck, I have great respect for,” she said. “He gets his message across in such a clever way.”

Next day, on his radio show, Glen Beck took umbrage at the word “hoot.” He’s a professional. He dismissed a Palin-Beck ticket but said a Beck-Palin ticket might work. But then he belittled her saying, Palin would always be "yapping," like they were "in the kitchen." He knows a woman’s place. Beck admonished Palin not to use “hoot” when mentioning his name. Impossible.

Next day, the Tea Baggers announce their first national convention with featured speakers: Sarah Palin and Minnesota’s highest elected nut U.S. Rep. Michelle Bachmann. Two hoots.

It’s official: “Tea Party Nation is pleased to announce the First National Tea Party Convention.” Hurry February. If initial reports are accurate, and if the plans hold together, the first-ever such meet-and-greet will be held at Opryland. Tickets: $560 per.

Now that’s a hoot. Bona fide.

Palin's mission is to sell books, not to run for office in any serious way. Same with Mike Huckabee, according to a trenchant column by Ross Douthat in the Nov. 22 NYTimes (see http://www.nytimes.com/2009/11/23/opinion/23douthat.html). "They Chose Celebrity" opines that neither Palin nor Huckabee can be serious contenders because they're too busy enjoying being a celebrity. Sounds right to me.

Ken, I say hooray for that! What a waste of time, money and energy, putting up candidates like the
Three Mooseketeers for serious consideration. It's an insult to the collective intelligence of this nation.
As for Palin, don't get me started...
