Every Day is April Fools Day for Sarah Palin

cross posted at PatricksworldUSA

Since being named as John McCain's running mate, Sarah Palin has been the subject of numerous (understatement?) stories written about her in the mainstream media and in the blogosphere. As we all enjoy being pranked and punked today, we laugh because the nonsense lasts only one day and everybody knows we're all kidding. But for Sarah Palin, April Fools Day is every day.

Whether she opens up the New York Times, switches on MSNBC, checks out her local newspaper, the Anchorage Daily News, picks up a Vanity Fair at the supermarket or happens to throw a Newsweek on the counter while she's picking up some make-up at CVS, she has to be thinking that at any moment someone is going to jump out from behind the wall and yell "April Fools!"

-Sarah Palin is a book banner. April Fools!
-Sarah Palin charged rape victims for their rape kits. April Fools!
-Sarah Palin's son Trig is not hers. April Fools!
-Trooper Wooten is an upstanding citizen and Walter Monegan is not really an at-will employee. April Fools!
-Sarah Palin can see Russia from her house. April Fools!
-"Hi Governor Palin, it's Nicholas Sarkozy." April Fools!

-Sarah Palin told her family that she was finished with politics and that she was going to write a book and give speeches just so she could get rich. Good one, Levi!
-Alex Rodriguez knocked up Willow. April Fools!
-Sarah Palin came to the door in a towel. April Fools!

-Sarah Palin's getting divorced. She threw her wedding ring in the lake during a fit of anger. April Fools!
-Sarah Palin didn't write Going Rogue. April Fools!
-Only a few hundred people showed up at her book signings. April Fools!
-She's getting a reality show like the Osbournes. April Fools!
-She raided an Oscar Suite before going on Leno where her performance was enhanced by a laugh track. April Fools! Okay, she did go on Leno but there was no laugh track.
-She got free health care in Canada. April Fools!
-She called on Tea Partiers to take up guns and kill liberals. April Fools!
-She personally interviewed LL Cool J and Toby Keith for her Fox News special. April Fools!
-She agreed to speak at an RNC fundraiser the week of the SRLC convention. April Fools!

I can't wait to see the new ones that come out. Geoffrey Dunn is working on a whole bunch for us as we speak.

The Drilling Lure: President Gives Us False Hope

Drill, Baby, Drill May Mean Cap n Tax, Baby, Cap n Tax

All through yesterday morning there were folks lauding Obama's decision to open drilling off the east coast of the United States. Governor Bob McDonnell of Virginia among others praised the move. But talk began circulating that there may be some gotcha's, strings or other tricks to what Obama is doing.

It was blown wide open by Sarah Palin who tweeted that "Obama goal=cram thru job-killing, energy-depleting, burdensome Cap & Tax scheme on heels of Obama's new 'pro-drilling' msg." She followed that up with an Op-Ed on NRO where she called Obama's new energy proposal "an effort to shore up fading support for the Democrats’ job-killing cap-and-trade (a.k.a. cap-and-tax) proposals."

Just when you thought you were going to get a little bit of that hope and change you were promised, the SOB in chief smacks you in the head with another hairbrained scheme to move his next legislative initiative. Palin writes:

I’ve got to call it like I see it: The administration’s sudden interest in offshore drilling is little more than political posturing designed to gain support for job-killing energy legislation soon to come down the pike. I’m confident that GOP senators will not take the bait.
The president thinks he can sucker us in, or possibly bribe the American people into letting us drill if we give him cap-and-tax. He almost got us on this one. But we're not biting.
