According to Katha Pollitt:
Sure, Palin is cool — she’s pretty and vivacious and athletic, a former beauty queen who runs marathons, hunts , fishes and eats mooseburgers, plus she’s got five kids with unusual names like Willow and Track, including a newborn with Down’s syndrome.
Clearly, McCain’s choice of Palin appears to be an attempt to appeal to the 3B vote. No doubt the first time in history anyone has done this.
It may, however, be slightly worrying to one of our more extensively hybridized authors.
Though come to think of it, “hunts” and “fishes” may be sources of concern for some here too.
There is no word of whether the RNC has made a deal with the makers of Snag brand 10W40 Moosteak Sauce.
It remains to be seen whether the ambiguous nature of Palin’s wildlife related program activities will actually attract any 3B votes, but it should probably be kept in mind how easily swayed we are.
