But Can Sarah Palin Vogue?

posted by on September 9 at 12:20 PM

Michelle Obama on Ellen yesterday:

She was trying to out-do this. Although, maybe it would have been better for the Democratic ticket’s chances with white female swing voters if Michelle had come on stage and shot a moose?

please just let these people get into the white house.

Hmm. Michelle dances exactly like I do.

She seems very tall next to Ellen.

This is not what our country stands for.

A goddess. She deserves to be president, obviously, with all her experience.

Judging by her "taste" in clothing, I'm going to say no.

(Also, was anyone else disappointed that Barack didn't bust a move?)

can we go at least half a day without posting about Palin?

Obsessing over her, instead of the issues, is what the Republicans want...

I'm waiting for the repugs to say michelle and ellen are having a secret love affair or say that it's a lesbian dance going on.

@8 Don't you mean a terrorist lesbian dance?

Not a chance.

When white people shoot guns in America, it's for "sport" and "defense."

When black people shoot guns in America, it's a "crisis of violence."

Has Fox News labelled it a "terrorist jig" yet?

She dances like a white lady. I was hoping to see her krump. Heh.

Maybe Ellen can invite McCain and Palin on the show, then in the middle of a segment, release an angry moose into the studio and watch it lung-punch the ticket with its front hooves.

She is such a beautiful and intelligent woman, and it makes most educated people beam with pride to see Michelle and her husband welcomed so warmly and taken so seriously. But the more we want it, the more disappointed we're going to be.

Who can argue with Ziggity@3? Michelle doesn't reflect this nation of drug-addled porn addicts and overfed white people. It hurts to admit it, but the U.S.A. is simply not good enough to vote the Obamas into the White House.

This 'Sara Palin' thing is so over. I am sick of hearing about her already. Not to mention that her voice on the radio is nails on a chalk board.

@8 I have a source (which I can not disclose) who confirms that what you say is true. Her name is Tawaneea and she waited on the two of them at McDonalds.

I have to give her credit for dusting her shoulders off.

Per ECB's directive, please stop sexualizing Palin.

Posted by knock it off | September 9, 2008 1:51 PM

As a proud Queer, I don't want to see this sportscaster/hunter/religious extremist "sexualized" in the slightest. I just don't want to see her a heartbeat away from the most powerful elected office on the planet.

Shall we all figure out what strategies will prevent this? If putting Michelle dancing on TV will work, well, sigh, okay. Both of the Obamas are climbing the uphill battle of communicating "we're like you, really we are" to Muddle America (sic). Thank you, Ellen, for your assistance.

Now would Hillary please stop "avoiding a cat-fight over Palin" and engage her with full feral-political force? I don't want to turn on a tv without seeing a story about her putting this novice politician in her place.

I am NOT "a drug-addled porn addict"!

Just ask my dealer, or my "masseuse".

Posted by COMTE | September 9, 2008 2:22 PM

She is so hot I can hardly stand it.
