Is it part of God’s plan that there are just so many good Sarah Palin stories tonight? Sarah, I just can’t quit you.You are a long cold drink on a hot day.
And speaking of drinking, it’s been announced that Palin will be the official keynote speaker at the Wine and Liquor Wholesalers of America convention in Las Vegas in early April. The convention features a liquor tasting, which leads in my bedazzled brain to the Name the Palin Cocktail game, and of course the official Sarah Palin drinking game.
Now what kind of drinking game might be best? We need a title for the game, scoring, rules, penalties, judges. She mentions “conservative” take a shot? “Good clean” whether Alaska protein or energy is worth two?
For some guidelines to the mixology concept and the drinking game, which could begin with her appearance tonight on O’Reilly (see above) or tomorrow on Beck, here’s some stuff from Game Change reported by the Daily Mail:
Palin’s behaviour was so erratic that at one point senior figures in the McCain campaign began to seriously discuss the possibility that she was mentally unstable..
She wasn’t eating (a few small bites of steak a day, no more). She wasn’t drinking (maybe half a can of Diet Doctor Pepper, no water, ever). She wasn’t sleeping (not much more than a couple of hours a night, max)…while being drilled for upcoming interviews, ‘she would routinely shut down – chin on her chest, arms folded, eyes cast to the floor, speechless and motionless, lost in what those around her described as a kind of catatonic stupor’.
The morning of her ill-fated CBS interview with Katie Couric, Ms Palin – ‘her eyes glassy and dead’ – was unresponsive to attempts to prep her as she was being made up.
‘As they were about to set off to meet Couric, Palin announced “I hate this makeup” -smearing it off her face, messing up her hair, complaining she looked fat,’ the book says
Speaking of cocktail, check out sleazy and creepy Glenn Beck leering about their weird attraction to each other. That’s enough to make me mix a nice absinthe and vermouth.
