Giving thanks: counting our blessings


Many thanks (I think) to Wm.™ Steven Humphrey, for this … um … yeah.

And as Humpy suggests, if the gay black guy in the cowboy hat can thank Sarah Palin ….

Very well: Thank you, Governor Palin. For many years, a certain kind of crass politics, invested in brutish ignorance, has held inordinate sway among voters. The grotesque caricature you (unwittingly?) offered us upon your debut at the GOP convention all the way through Election Day and beyond provided a kind of mirror for the American soul, into which millions of American voters gazed and finally understood that they did not like the reflection. Thank you for helping to elect Barack Obama. Americans everywhere owe you great thanks, and we would be even more in your debt if you would now, finally, shut the hell up and not bother us again.
