What's newsworthy to me is that it's apparently so cold in Seoul that the Han River is freezing up. Yeah, yeah, I know, that happens at some point every year, but it's still fascinating to me. Meanwhile, I slept with a fan on. (I guess I shouldn't brag about the weather, or else it won't be just English teachers who hate me.)

Your strange sex-realted attacks on Palin are starting to really lessen your blog, especially as all of the links lead nowhere.ReplyDelete
You do realize, don't you John, that the final stories in the Daily Kor are not to be taken seriously if they don't have a working link. In an otherwise very serious set of news stories each day, this is my one attempt to keep things light, and I've been doing it from the beginning. It's very hit-and-miss, with daily "Far Side"-like consistency.ReplyDelete
And I make fun of all kinds of people, including Kim Yuna and the VANKster nationalists.
If you are a Sarah Palin supporter, methinks you are being a tad oversensitive, as I've been moderately generous in dealing with the former Governor (see here and more recently here). I have criticisms of her as a candidate, but they are well-reasoned. Besides, Sarah Palin is a good sport. (My preferred Republicans for president are Huckabee or Romney.)
At any rate, I'm not sure what sex-related attack you see in today's gag. Sure, the past two days were clearly sex-related — and having attended a few conservative Protestant churches where Sarah Palin's naïve ideology about sexuality dominated, I think I've earned a right to poke fun at it — but today's was simply about her looking like she's forming the GOP logo's elephant trunk with her left arm. Nothing sexual there at all.
I could care less about that Palin, but I do enjoy this one.ReplyDelete
However, you are coming off one note in your not very funny use of her. Sprinkle Michelle Obama in some times to become bit more well-rounded.
I had some Sarah Palin in the queue, and I just wanted to get it out of the way. Michelle Obama does not lend herself to funny pictures (this was not my best work).ReplyDelete
Nor does the First Lady lend herself to ridicule. Just when Michelle Obama comes into the spotlight, Sarah Palin steps in front of her to make sure that ridicule to go around will be sent her way.
