The Return of the Palin Dudes

posted by on October 29 at 14:08 PM

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…

You're 16 letters short of a typeface, which I can download and install as a font.

Also, color me unimpressed until he's implemented the entire Unicode basic multilingual plane.

I thought you wanted letter C...

I'll fuck the truth into A personally, not V ;)

Letter V kind of turned out like this.

I would think this is funny, but the Shiba Inu puppies on the livestream posted yesterday are feeding right now. They win.

Ahem. Uh. Ugh.

This is an awesome, even without the context of its inception.

@1: yes, and no goshdarn-ya-betcha accent = no fun.

Those photos make my female boner shrink.

A, plzl.

are palin dudes really that white? it wouldnt surprise me, but im just now realizing that isnt white paint, but probably white skin. like, ivory white.

these guys need sun, not a typeface.

Posted by KCip | October 29, 2008 3:06 PM

I like letter M, personally.

Palin Dudes?

How about Dimmest of the Dim Dumbshits.

Posted by blackhook | October 29, 2008 3:12 PM

This is awesome. Font for wedding inviations, found!

Posted by Sandy | October 29, 2008 3:13 PM

it's a comfort to know that if I'm ever at a party with Dan, I won't be in direct competition with him. V is all his. Give me an A, E, C, K choo-choo train.

Posted by robo | October 29, 2008 3:16 PM

@6: Ignore 10!

Posted by Mikki | October 29, 2008 3:42 PM

E and K are dinging high on the gaydometer.

Posted by robo | October 29, 2008 3:46 PM

I'd like to school E, please.

Posted by violet_dagrinder | October 29, 2008 4:31 PM

There's a lot of things I won't do with Republicans - I might get some on me - but I'll gladly give E a bare-bottom spanking.

@13: It is paint. Look at the line of skin between the white and their pants.

Posted by Aislinn | October 29, 2008 6:37 PM

Can I still detest Republicans and love their hairy armpits at the same time?

Posted by Vince | October 30, 2008 6:22 AM

@3: I hope you're joking, because I can't imagine why anyone would put more than a few hours into this project. I think this is one typeface that is not in need of multi-lingual OpenType support with Eastern European diacritic marks included. It would be a good addition to, though.

Posted by dreamboatcaptain | October 30, 2008 6:40 AM

My vote would be E, or maybe A in a pinch. V's not "kick him out of bed" ugly or anything, but...
