LeBron James’ ego meets its match

Sarah Palin’s infomercial set me straight:

  1. “Mama Grizzlies” are not the lesbian equivalent of gay bears, aka daddies.
  2. Coach Palin isn’t as hostile to gay rights as I assumed. She speaks of a “whole stampede of pink elephants” taking back Washington, an obvious shout out to Log Cabin Republicans.
  3. Most presidents require at least one four-year term to “get things done.” Not Sarah. She finishes the job in half the time, then resigns to serve her country in another, more profitable capacity.

She’ll be speaking in the third person in no time.

Same old spin

“We are committed to providing the American people access to complete and accurate information about our response to the BP oil spill and the resources available to assist those directly impacted,” said National Incident Commander Admiral Thad Allen. “ will provide even greater transparency and openness about the BP oil spill, our historic response, the tools available to assist Gulf Coast communities, and plans for the region’s long-term recovery and restoration.”

The gulf may not be scrubbed clean, but the website sure is sanitized.

Actually, tidily sums up the administration’s underwhelming response to a national disaster: Nothing to see here. Everything’s fine.
