Say It With Palin Dudes

posted by on October 31 at 8:35 AM

The “Palin dudes” debuted in the New York Times earlier this month. The Palin Dudes Typeface made its debut on Slog earlier this week.


You can download the “Palin Dude Typeface” here! Then go read today’s big New York Times story about how Palin is sinking McCain.

A growing number of voters have concluded that Senator John McCain’s running mate, Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska, is not qualified to be vice president, weighing down the Republican ticket in the last days of the campaign, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News poll.

All told, 59 percent of voters surveyed said Ms. Palin was not prepared for the job, up nine percentage points since the beginning of the month. Nearly a third of voters polled said the vice-presidential selection would be a major factor influencing their vote for president, and those voters broadly favor Senator Barack Obama, the Democratic nominee.

And in a possible indication that the choice of Ms. Palin has hurt Mr. McCain’s image, voters said they had much more confidence in Mr. Obama to pick qualified people for his administration than they did in Mr. McCain.

The key fact is that the base loves her anyway. Dump Palin, lose the base. What is a party with no base? Keep Palin, and the GOP's next forty years in the wilderness begins.

Bless Sarah Palin. Bless her.

Remember how Rainbow Coalition and PUSH both splintered off from primary parties on similar religious convictions, a shifted social priority and based on failed political aspirations to became political powerhouses?

Yeah, neither did I.

What's the difference between Sarah Palin and Jesse Jackson? Lipstick.

That is a really great point...not only the selection of Sarah Palin the but the reflection of his indiscretion in choosing an entire CABINET.

The poll was conducted simply by inserting the phrase "President Palin!" into conversation with no advance warning. Respondents who let out an involuntary yelp of alarm were counted as a "no" vote.

I hear next week's Stranger is going to be typeset entirely in Palin Dude.

Awesome, dude.

I like the Palin Dude typeface, but why no credit for your designer friend who created it? Does he/she not want the accolades?

I just realized that this is one pit bull I wouldn't be opposed to a comprehensive ban on.

Hey. A thought. If Palin is the face of the future Republican Party, maybe she can get them all to move to Alaska, right before it secedes.

That would be hawesome.

Yeah, uh...the "Palin dudes" thing was amusing as a one-off gag, but I fail to see real humor in it. But because Dan thought of it's just highLARIous.

I like it so I downloaded it. To those who don't like it, don't download it :-)
