Monday Morning Political Roller Coaster
Sarah Palin was on SNL this weekend. She is not funny. She “raised the roof,” further fueling the stereotype that white people over 40 have difficulty letting go of urban expressions (can I get a “Whoomp there it is”?). She sort of did the cabbage patch and poked her lips out like a black person, the epitome of the “white people dancing” phenomenon yet somehow depressing instead of endearing. This is the downhill part of the aforementioned roller coaster.
Barack Obama roasted John McCain at a fancy dinner. He is wearing a very valet-like white bow tie. He has a really cute little laugh and I really have to admire his ability to crack jokes about this whole election business because most of us haven’t been able to do so. This is the uphill part of the roller coaster.
