Okay, okay, technically speaking Mrs Palin isn't stalking me... but she is getting way the hell closer!
According to the Calgary Herald, the former governor, former VP nominee, bestselling fiction author, and current right-wing poster girl, is coming to Calgary, a city very close to where I live... which leads me to ask, uh, why, gawd, why?
I think this is one of those standard celeb for hire speeches, where we have seen retired politicians like Bill Clinton, Colin Powell, and George W Bush traipse thru town, speak for a few hours, collect hundreds of thousands of dollars, and take off.
Still gotta ask... why, gawd, why?
What does Palin have in common with Alberta? Northern, oil and gas business, cowboy hats, right-wing tendencies, we can see Russia from our house (no, not really).
Do we need a small-town right-wing egocentric moron with a microphone spouting off her craziness? We have plenty of those, this is western Canada. Why do we have to import clueless right wing nut jobs?
Will people pay big bucks to see Palin? You betcha.
So I am not going to see Mrs Palin, and she likely isn't coming to see me... no stalking yet... however, if Tina Fey wants to stalk me, I am all for that, bring it on!
