Sarah Palin Pardons a Turkey – Kills Any Hope of Looking Intelligent

November 21, 2008 · Posted in Celebrity, humor, Political, Rants · Comment 

I don’t know why Sarah Palin bugs me so much, but she does.  Every time I see her name or face staring back at me from the television or internet, I think to myself – “oh God, here she comes again.”  This time, I have to see her standing at a Wasilla, Alaska turkey farm, cup of Starbucks in hand, as she pardons a turkey.

What’s really hillarious to me is how ignorant she really is.  The media is playing her while the crackpot behind her is playing with my turkey dinner before stuffing it into some weird contraption.  All the while she’s rambling on about business, how the campaign trail was, and what she’s going to do for Alaska.  Heck, the only reason I like seeing Sarah Palin in the news is that I know Saturday Night Live is going to feature Tina Fey re-enacting the stupidity with an audiance laughing all the way.  Do you think John McCain is watching this thinking to himself… “thank God, it’s over.”

Vote for Coffee – Send Someone to Court?

This election is going to be historical for reasons beyond Obama being the first African-American Presidential candidate.  This election is going to be historical because of the passion that it has raised in America and how many people have returned to the battle cry “Vote!”  Unfortunately, for some large corporations, it’s also going to be a reminder that no good deed goes unpunished.

Starbucks, Krispy Kreme doughnuts, and Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, to name a few, have all offered incentives to voters just to vote – to do their patriotic duty.  Unfortunately, some state laws consider these incentives illegal.  Georgia, for example, has it written into their law:

“Any person who gives or receives, or offers to give or receive, or participates in the giving or receiving of money or gifts for the purpose of registering as a voter, voting, or voting for a particular candidate in any primary or election shall be guilty of a felony.”
