The Mole

posted by on October 22 at 11:29 AM

Perhaps Sarah Palin—who is doing serious damage to McCain’s chances, what with her depositions, wardrobe malfunctions, suspect billing practices, and general implausibility—is a highly-placed, top-secret mole working on behalf of the Democratic party.

What other explanation is there for this:

We don't want her! They have to keep her!

But the scarf is priceless.

the stylist they hired has nothing but contempt for the GOP in his/her heart + palin's an idiot?

Posted by max solomon | October 22, 2008 11:34 AM

No, no - it's her sales assistant at Bloomingdale's who's the genius here.

Posted by Ziggity | October 22, 2008 11:36 AM

Clearly, she's an arab terrorist. She just put the coffee down for this photo.

Eeek! Look at her hand! She's a wicked witch! On Nov. 5 her spell will break and we'll see her green and warty face as it really is.

Those are Alaskan elephants, folks! Ya betcha! Gosh-golly...

Posted by Madashell | October 22, 2008 11:43 AM

She was concerned that the elephant scarf made her look fat.

for this we taxpayers paid $150,000?

Some handler/personal assistant just won a bet.

Haven't I been saying that Sarah Palin is a gift from God?

And the only reason I now believe there is a God is none other than Sarah Palin.

a affinity for donkey dick?

Posted by randy beaver | October 22, 2008 11:50 AM

I love the smell of irony in the morning!

Posted by inkweary | October 22, 2008 11:51 AM

It wasn't the taxpayers, Will.

Posted by Fnarf | October 22, 2008 11:52 AM

$150,000 wardrobe budget, and this is the best they can do?

Posted by Reverse Polarity | October 22, 2008 11:54 AM

I hope she gets a reality show deal soon. Sarah Palin makes Paris Hilton look like a true scholar.

Posted by kerri harrop | October 22, 2008 11:57 AM

Wait, where can I get that scarf? I want one!

Posted by The Artist Formerly Known As Sigourney Beaver | October 22, 2008 11:58 AM

those aren't donkeys, they're victory ponies.

Posted by brandon | October 22, 2008 11:58 AM

Bwaaaaah-hahahaha! I hope a faggot did it.

Posted by itsmarkmitchell | October 22, 2008 11:58 AM

Last night I was theorizing there's got to be a mole handling the McCain campaign: sending a message of divisiveness, rejecting running mates who can walk and chew gum at the same time. This merely adds more evidence.

They're capybaras. Red, white and blue capybaras.

Posted by NapoleonXIV | October 22, 2008 11:59 AM

Brandon ... they are PRO AMERICAN victory ponies

Posted by gordon | October 22, 2008 12:00 PM

No, no, they're pit-bulls!

I don't think donkeys go around sniffing each others butts...

Posted by COMTE | October 22, 2008 12:01 PM

Okay, so, I'm wondering how on earth she put this scarf on and didn't notice?

Posted by Julie in Chicago | October 22, 2008 12:07 PM

Are those donkeys wearing lipstick?

Wow, David, that's not kooky at all. What a lovely site.

Posted by Fnarf | October 22, 2008 12:49 PM

Trig spit up on the other one. It's all she had to wear

@25: That is brilliant! The truth is, middle American Jesus nuts are just as wound up in their witchcraft as any "voodoo" practitioner in Africa. I guess the silver lining is, they're not intolerant of other religions: they recognize the efficacy of the Kenyans' religion. They feel it must be fought, so it must be as real and valid as the western god. (Makes me think of god in chaps, is that wrong?)

Posted by Al | October 22, 2008 12:58 PM

@David -- That site wove lazy eights around my mind. Thank you.

Posted by itsmarkmitchell | October 22, 2008 12:58 PM

@25 - hey, that email came from someone in Bothell! I didn't want to know that the scary Christians were so close.

Posted by asteria | October 22, 2008 1:06 PM

She's not a mole. McCain gave her this scarf. But whey did he give her a scarf, a fashion accessory very popular in France? Because he's not trying to win.

Posted by kraskland | October 22, 2008 1:07 PM

David, that's awesome. Really.

I read the whole thing through. I'm... speechless.

Posted by Reverse Polarity | October 22, 2008 1:13 PM

David -- wow. Are we sure the Onion isn't behind that?

Posted by gnossos | October 22, 2008 1:43 PM

I'd wager that she is entirely unaware that the donkey is a symbol of the Democratic party.

Posted by Rhizome | October 22, 2008 2:04 PM

Easy: She's an ass girl.

Posted by Ivan | October 22, 2008 2:09 PM

As I said elsewhere: now, let's see a liberal who has the nerve to wear something serious and patriotic with elephants on it. Or I'd settle for just an American flag pin.

Posted by Seajay | October 22, 2008 2:17 PM

we won't wear elephants during election season, because we despise republicans--seriously. and flag pins reek of phony and meaningless to those with brains. that explain it for you seajay?

Posted by ellarosa | October 22, 2008 2:28 PM

@36 - maybe you could post a link to clothing that is "serious and patriotic with elephants on it..."

Posted by Ivan | October 22, 2008 2:49 PM

@38:Does this count?

Posted by flamingbanjo | October 22, 2008 2:58 PM

Ugh, seajay. You’re sliding into Bailo territory…

A. Pretty much every Democrat now wears a flag pin 24/7 thanks to the conservative idiots who think that not wearing one means you're un-American. I think it’s completely moronic, but if a fucking lapel pin is all it takes to convince people that Obama loves his county… okay, fine, wear one for all I care.

B. It wouldn’t be “nerve” for a Democratic politician to wear something that says “Vote” plus a picture of an elephant. It would be stupid. Just like a Democrat wearing a “McCain/Palin” or a “Vote GOP” shirt would be stupid.

Posted by Julie in Chicago | October 22, 2008 3:03 PM

@ david - that site has 2,691,671 subscribers. holy fuck.

thanks for sharing!

Posted by oh, lord | October 22, 2008 3:49 PM

@39 YES! It's velvet, and one size fits most adults.

Posted by Ivan | October 22, 2008 5:34 PM

Late to the party, but here goes:

Albino zebras. With patriotic saddles. And GOTV banners. *cough*

Posted by emma's bee | October 22, 2008 6:43 PM

@40 ... you seem serious and thoughtful.
My point isn't about flag pins, though I could argue it. My point has to do with how someone can read this site about how Mrs Palin was bought forty gazillion dollars' worth of clothes by Republicans--remember, if she's stupid, it doesn't matter because she's got handlers, right?--and then to say this scarf is something NOT intentional. I can tell you from personal experience that political handlers are aware of the invention of the camera and pay a great deal of attention to visible symbols associated with their people.

"It wouldn’t be 'nerve' for a Democratic politician to wear something that says 'Vote' plus a picture of an elephant. It would be stupid. Just like a Democrat wearing a 'McCain/Palin' or a 'Vote GOP' shirt would be stupid."

You're correct here, though it's a poor analogy because she's not wearing a shirt that says "Obama/Biden" or "Vote Democratic." But for a Democrat to do even as much as that would not be 'smart.' If you want to stay in the Democrat party you act 'smart.' Because Democrats get drummed out of the party for taking their own thoughts too far. Just ask Joe Lieberman or Zell Miller, or Tammy Bruce, or--I'm guessing--soon, Orson Scott Card.

One word: Maverick

Posted by Jesse | October 22, 2008 10:21 PM

The intended message:
Vote! And not for the donkeys with the heads up one anothers' asses.

I am an alaskan woman. i DESPISE palin. She is deceitful and small-minded. Doesn't believe in evolution or global warning, DOES believe in witchcraft and end of days as a good thing.
