Following last night's frightening GOP speeches and this morning's inane cable-news coverage, my mom weighs in Sarah Palin:
"So what, she's had five kids. She's a baby factory. How does that make her fit to be vice-president. I know lots of women who are baby factories--I wouldn't want them anywhere near the White House. And one has Down Syndrome? She chose to have it. Who cares?
"She put the Alaska Governor's plane up on E-Bay? Well whoopty shit."
I should take a moment to point out: my mother is almost 70, methodist, and has never voted for a democratic presidential candidate. Until this year.
I have yet to ask her how she feels about field dressing moose.
