A Sarah Palin Threesome

  • "I hate to drag Sarah Palin into this but as soon as I heard what she named her kids I knew I could never vote for her," said a wise anonymous commenter to this post by Rod Dreher on an old topic — Will a superblack name hurt your child's prospects?

  • "She's more than willing to trade liberty for safety," argues Steve Chapman, saying that "judging from the applause for Sarah Palin at [the tea party's] convention, the movement's suspicion of government power is exceeded only by its worship of government power" — A Weak Brew.

  • "After criticizing Obama for using a teleprompter, it was discovered that she had crib notes written on her own hand to answer a rather simple, straightforward and indeed softball' question," reminds John Médaille, noting that "missed in all the merriment is what she had actually written, because that tells a story all its own" — Sarah Palin's Hand Job.

    A couple words as memory aids isn't the same thing as having your whole speech fed to you.

    The first article had several links to lists of baby names you probably shouldn't name your child. Not "superblack" names, mind you, but "hipster parent" names! Everything from Ella (a jazz musician name) to Matilda (a celebrity couple's baby's name) is now unsafe, unless you want to bear the stigma of being known as one of the neighbourhood's hipster parents!

    Well, there go my plans to name my firstborn son Frodo! ;)

    I think Frodo should be on that list if it isn't already--but what about Arwen? We toyed with that one. I think Ella is kind of pretty too.

    Confucian: Shame shame. After the lectures Mr. Médaille got for "hand job" and "Tea baggers" you're brave to come out with the "threesome" title.

    I think that's precisely why Joshua came up with the "Threesome" title. =P

    Enbrethiliel, you nailed it. Mrs. Palin was sold by her handlers and they know sex sells.

    I hesitated about the title, but then recalled a recent video of her giving a talk in which they had her sitting on a chair with her shapely legs crossed seductively to the side.
