When will the time be right?

OKAY, NOT 2012: 2016 is Palin’s number, says Palin biographer Lorenzo Benet, whose name delightfully continues to appear in my Google Alerts! Perhaps, one day, Lorenzo Benet, you will earn your own Google Alert in my RSS feed. Never give up on the dreams that I project upon you, Lorenzo Benet.

NO LITMUS TEST? Palin has selected former Planned Parenthood board member Morgan Christen as the next Alaskan Supreme Court justice. Reports the Alaska Daily News:

Christen’s application included her membership in several charitable groups, including some from her past, but did not mention that she was on the board of Planned Parenthood in the mid-1990s. The organization, which didn’t provide abortions in Alaska until 2003, is now on the opposite side of a Palin-supported bill to require girls under 17 to get parental consent for an abortion.

The appointment was protested by conservative Christians in the state.

PALIN MAKES COMIC BOOK DEBUT: The “Female Force” series, penned by Florida artist Vinnie Tartamella, features Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton, Caroline Kennedy and Sarah Palin, superwomen who “are popular and influential, regardless of political affiliation.” The first issue will feature Palin and Clinton, together at last!

FIRST DUDE WINTER SPORTS CORNER: No Todd Palin sporting advice this morning. Somebody get this man to a snow machine, stat!

TOO HOT TO HANDLE? Science has proven that Sarah Palin‘s attractiveness broke the Republican party. ““It wasn’t her appearance per se,” psychologist Nathan Heflick said. “It was the effect her appearance had on their perception of her competence and humanity. Those variables made people less likely to vote for her.” But who are we to take science at face value? Still waiting on the nation’s religious leaders to weigh in on whether Palin is too hot, or just hot enough.

BRISTOL PALIN: MOOSEBURGER FUNNIES! Via The Immortal Minority, via Alaska Ear:

Let’s talk about Bristol, who appears to have inherited her mother’s sense of humor.

It seems that people wanting to support the efforts of the World Wildlife Fund against Alaska’s hunting and predator control policies have been making donations and directing the fund to send the fuzzy stuffed animals one gets in return to Gov. Palin.

An earwig in a position to actually know something once in a while says Bristol called her mom last week to report three more stuffed wolves had shown up at the house.

Mom wondered (perhaps not sincerely?) what they might send the WWF fans as a thank-you for the stuffed wolves.

Bristol suggested packages of moose meat might be just the thing.
