Aren't most of those members on government salaries paid by taxgivers?

It's still their business what to do with it.  And in this case, it's "Play dress-up with a Tina Fey lookalike."

A room full of repressed old men.  I don't blame them.

Also, a fair number are wealthy independent of whatever salary they receive from the taxpayers. So it's not quite so bad.

To be fair, giving the correct answer - "Usually Nothing" - kind of takes the spotlight off her.  And we can't have that.

I dunno, "Be ready at any time to take over for the President if he becomes unable to serve" is pretty me-centric, and also actually the fucking job.

Do you understand how terrifying the words “vibrating strap on” are for an asexual? That’s like saying “the holocaust” to a Jew.

McCain... Well... He wears more makeup than Palin.

Too soon, I spoke.

By the way, love the scarf.

...I just realized that John McCain is Dick Cheney with his glasses off.

See, I picked it up about the time the Burgess Meredith/Penguin comparisons started flooding in.

How does Sarah Palin manage to be within such close proximity to a goth without trying to burn her?

Do you realize how much the government pays people to do those jobs?  Most of a parties money comes from private contributions, not public money.  The government will lend money to campaigns  if they meet certain requirements and are willing to abide by certain rules.  But they do not provide the political parties with any money, that all comes from from people like usrich mogols.

So Sarah Palin has pretty much proven herself to be one gigantic pile of steaming toxic shit - the kind that the longer it stays around, the worse things get.

Why haven't they packaged her and sent her back to Alaska yet?

If that article about her shopping habits is to be believed, she's only recently begun to be viewed as negative by a majority of the voters.  And that's mainly because she has turned out not to have as much in common with drunkards and live-in mothers as she has claimed.

Was still the top story on Google News in the A.M., and the now the second top aggregate story is of her bringing down the ticket.

I forget, was John Edwards also telling Joe Six-Pack to rise up against the coastal liberal elites that weren't the real middle america

because that'd be pretty hypocritical
