Oh no! Sarah Palin is stalking me!

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!

Tina Fey can stalk me anyday! :)

Love your blog! I was reading through a few posts, and I can tell that I am going to really enjoy this one. Great work!

She came to the Mall of America to sign her book. For about 1 second I was tempted to go take a peak at her. But then I decided I couldn't stand to see the people in line waiting to meet her.

I'd pick that time to take a looooooong weekend....in the other direction!

Its probably a similar deal as when bush was here. Its amazing what rich conservatives will waste there money on!

Ugh... what is that horrible thing stuck to your blog? ..... sorry just realised..... Sarah Palin's photo!!

Oh Brahm, just one other thing (Clare and I realised it) ... you can turn that annoying word verification off, and then set your blog so you approve all the comments. That way you don't get spammed..... luverly jubberly. We are both converts.

Is it me or is there an uncanny resemblance to alfred? (no offense intended... to either party)

I would prefer Tina to stalk me as well.. she would be a funny BFF

Matthew said...

I did not realise Sarah Palin had written a book. Might I enquire what one gets to colour in if one buys it?

Sarah Palin is like herpes. You can never totally get rid of it and just when you think you have, it pops up again. Maybe she'll do her rant against the evils of socialized medicine.

Brahm, please, don't disgrace the pages of your blog with digusting filth such as this. I am a Canadian too and the thought of people giving that slag ANY media attention puts the world back in the dark ages.

Brahm said...

I like the herpes metaphor... or is that a simile? Always got those two confused.

Distrubing how pople will pay big bucks to see Palin when there are so many great causes out there people could support. And yes going forward I will try to avoid mentioning Sarah Palin. Still gonna slag Glenn Beck though...

I think she's stalking the whole USA and apparently all of North America.
I don't see that she has anything but greed and ambition.
How can people really believe in her as a potential presidential candidate or [gulp] as president? If that happens, Canada may get crowded with those of us fleeing the insanity.

Please step off. Tina Fey totally stalks ME! (yeah, and then I wake up in the morning...)

"bestselling fiction author"

LMAO - well, smiling anyway. Great line. Gawd I hope they are stupid enough to nominate her for Top Job.

Do you know that her followers refer to themselves as "Tea-baggers?" On purpose.
