It's fun to laugh about it now, thinking about that insidious, strangely sublime pairing (after all, the brilliant Tina Fey would not have been able to trot out her own brilliant "you betcha" version of Sarah Palin had she not been catapulted into the spotlight), and how much fun it was to make fun of her despite our absolute terror that she just might get elected. And it's a little wild to remember how we thought that it couldn't get much crazier than this.
And now, four years later, we learn that it can get crazier. It can always get crazier. And thank god for the funny people out there who offer up some much-needed comic relief during election season.
I'm a tad bit worried that I might have inadvertently contributed to the McCain/Palin campaign yesterday.
When we got to the car, I inspected the tootsie rolls, which I quickly noticed were covered in customized "The Knights of Columbus Thanks you for your Support" wrappers. But it was when I read the other side of the wrapper that I thought that perhaps I had just given a dollar to the McCain/Palin campaign:
Oh well. I'll double my usual donation to Obama, and maybe I'll get a box of junior mints. ;)
