Oops, Blicky took one for the team during the Republican National Convention to demonstrate his deep commitment to firearms, but is now recovering nicely and is considered a war hero just like Bush or Harry Whittington.
Summary of Palin's speech for those of you who missed it.
- My fellow republicans and racist independents, my down-home-iness is so damn cute that you will love me,
- I'm going to put the class back into class warfare,
- I'm so folksy that you will laugh like crazy while you get poorer and the big businesses enjoy record profits,
- We will make you cry with the beauty of our encomiums to war while our young men continue to die and Haliburton continues to profit.
- I'm proud of America no matter what we do because we're always right.... right, right, right, right -- well maybe not slavery and Japanese Internment camps -- but we rocked the house at Abu Graib. U-S-A, U-S-A, U-S-A, U-S-A!
I've got a really blicky feeling in the pit of my stomach.
