Remember the “Palin dudes” the New York Times wrote about a week and a half ago?
It is not unusual for fans of Sarah Palin to shout out to the Alaska governor in the midst of her stump speeches. It is noteworthy, however, that the crowds are heavily male.
“You rock me out, Sarah,” yelled one man, wearing a red-checked hunting jacket as Ms. Palin, the Republican vice presidential candidate, strode into an airplane hangar here on Thursday. He held a homemade “Dudes for Sarah” sign and wore a National Rifle Association hat.
The story ran with this photo of a bunch of half-naked Palin dudes…
The first thing I thought when I saw that photo was—well, the first thing I thought was, “Man, I’d like to fuck some sense into letter V.” And the second thing I thought was, “Hm…. A, C, E, I, K, M, V, R… we’re just 16 letters short of a font.” I mentioned the idea of a “Palin Dude” font to a graphic designer buddy of mine and ta-da! The Palin Dude Font. You can download it here. And once it’s on your computer you can make the Palin Dudes—including scorchin’ hot letter V—say whatever the hell you want. So goodbye “MAVERICK,” hello…
