A Title for Palin’s Book?

It would be hypocritical of me to complain about Democrats, liberals and the mainstream media (today’s redundancy is brought to you by Palmolive dish soap) inventing titles for Sarah Palin’s book that’s due out next year, because I do it all the time. Clintons, Kennedys — you name the book, and I’ve probably mocked it — so turnabout is fair play. But some of this Palin Derangement is hilariously bitter.
Liberals would be going at Palin’s book with both barrels blazing, but since their gun control beliefs even extend to idioms, they’re forced to resort to lame whining, as evidenced by Keith Olbermann and some alleged radio talk show host I’ve never heard of helping Sarah with titles.
Olbermann harps on Rupert Murdoch “financing” Palin’s book — as if nobody’s going to buy it and it’s just a roundabout campaign donation. Eh, I don’t think so — that’s Democrat shtick, Keith.
There’s also the “ghost writer” fixation, as if every other politician didn’t have one. That’s not true, of course. It’s comical watching people like Keith Olbermann, who is always grimacing as if somebody just tack-hammered a Tinkertoy up his butt, Mr. leg thrill Chris Matthews (his show got the name “Hardball” the day Chris met Barack), et al, performing diatribes against Palin for having a ghost-writer — rants that were often written by somebody else and appear on a teleprompter for them to read.
They sure are spending a lot of time worrying about someone they claim is an irrelevant, stupid hayseed with no chance to make it in national politics, which is interesting.
In any case, in the spirit of bipartisanship, I’ll help with titles for Sarah Palin’s upcoming book. Here are just a couple of suggestions:
–I can see sexists from my house!
–101 uses for a dead moose
–I crap bigger’n MSNBC
–The Thrilla in Wasilla
–The audacity of you-bet’cha
