Kim Jong Il, You Betcha

A friend imagined a conversation between the Governor of Alaska and the Dear Leader of North Korea.

Well gosh darn it Mr. Kim Jong, you betcha we're still all riled up about them POW's we left back there and the veterans and American people are just gonna say we've had it with all the evil regimes and nucular weapons bein' the end all and the be all and now you're dealin' with a couple of mavericks. In my country we have a sayin' about pit bulls and hockey, now I don't know if you have hockey over there in Asia but here in America, Joe Six-pack loves his hockey. You know, I was on vacation in Seattle once, and I'm pretty sure I could see parts of Asia, lookin' out across the ocean there, so don't think you can sneak up on us, 'cause there are Americans in Seattle lookin' up at the skies just waitin' for one of your jets or one of those doggone missiles, and the American people are just gonna say no more. No more, you know, of the evil regimes and the nucular weapons and them WMD's. You're dealin' with a Maverick now in John McCain and he knows how to win a war, you betcha.

Priceless.

Very good stuff. She seems to be, like her state's primary export, a diminishing and non-renewable resource, though I don't exactly blame her for accepting her 15 minutes.

In any case, unless a video surfaces of Obama and Ayers plotting a bombing of some ROTC building or some random lunatics successfully blow something up in the US of A, the election is over. Obama's vacuous bloviations will provide me with some entertainment, and Biden's alternating flippancy, mawkishness, and delusional Welshness will be a welcome respite from Cheney's extra-constitutional rogue vice-presidency.

You lose "center" cred on such a childish partisan rant.

Seriously, anyone can go "you do this" and act like an airhead. I expect that on a school ground. But, of course, partisanship just makes people stupid. Even otherwise respectable social commentators.

You lost your center. Rats, now you are just gruntled. Ha! Great post and I think a social commentary on the politics of language.

You are still in the center to me.

Saturday is for jokes, and usually not my own.

"You are still in the center to me."

With all due respect, John, what would he have to do to get to the left of you?

It's all relative, I suppose...

Sorry but you wouldn't be considered a centrist down here in Dallas, Austin maybe but not Dallas.

Bubba, you gotta read both halves of my self-description.
