What is the difference between a dead moose with lipstick on and a dead moose without lipstick? Lipstick. You have to read the whole article – George Saunders is brilliant. If he wasn’t such an Elite I would well, I wouldn’t kiss him because that would be like, gross, and possibly un-Regular. But you get the drift. Read it. Weep. Or not.
Some other quotes:
“At the end of the day, campaigns are campaigns. In the last five days, it always comes down to a knife fight in a telephone booth.” — Democratic consultant Chris Lehane
“Palin’s people said her strategy would be to stay upwind of Biden, flush him into an open area, and then take a go for a clean shot through the lungs. You don’t want to mess up the head — that’s the trophy.” —Jimmy Kimmel
Back to the dead-moose-flogging. Maureen O’Dowd gets in some pretty good jibes about Sarah Palin.
With her pompom patois and sing-songy jingoism, Palin can bridge contradictory ideas that lead nowhere: One minute she promises to get “greater oversight” by government; the next, she lectures: “Government, you know, you’re not always a solution. In fact, too often you’re the problem.”
