Addendum: "Palinology"

Soooooo...I will assume by now it's old news that the news that Sarah Palin is a young-earth creationist who believes that humans and non-avian dinosaurs coexisted only a few thousand years ago. She's even dredged up the long discredited "evidence" of the Paluxy trackways, which is about as old-fashioned American creationist as you can get. This is one that even most anti-evolutionists back away from these days, so Sarah's gettin' old school on us here. A friend of mine in Birmingham has referred to this latest dusting off of the old straw horse as "Palinology," which, I'll admit, rather amused me. Anyway, the whole silly affair is rather nicely summed up in another painting by Zina Saunders:

I keep trying to face all of this with a sense of humor, but it turns my blood cold that even the most ardent Republican didn't take to the streets in anger that this moronic woman was selected to run as veep for their party.

The first thing that came to my mind on this was, I want a riding dinosaur, please Santa.

It's a beautiful painting, and funny... T. rex and S. palin have the same look in their eye.

I get dry heaves thinking that there are people voting for the Republican ticket because they would rather die than have a black president. Without thinking what they ARE voting for. It is very scary.

the first thing that came to my mind was that picture of Jesus riding a dinosaur...

anyway, God put dinosaurs here to challenge our faith... science is just a test of faith... doncha knowit? she makes me so mad...

i just found out that she has 2 vacation properties and a float plane at her dock... so much for being a low-class beer guzzler... well, i guess money doesn't buy you class.

That alone is reason enough to not vote for her. Screw all the other stuff.
