… so we should be sure to make fun of them when they are.
I’m pretty sure these clips combine some of my favorite things on planet earth: William Shatner, Conan O’Brien, poetry, and making fun of the political class. As you probably know, Sarah Palin resigned from her position as governor of Alaska a few weeks ago. Despite what some have said (including this somewhat perplexing article on LRC), I don’t see Palin as a potential advocate of true liberty in the coming years without some major turnarounds in her political philosophy. I could be convinced, but it would take quite a lot. The standard for repented politicians is considerably higher for me than most other people because of the harm so many of them are complicit in causing.
In fact, my suspicion is that she is steadily positioning herself in the public eye (which she cannot do in Alaska, despite her failed VP run) in order to take another shot in the 2012 presidential race. Mark my words, watch out for a Rick Perry – Sarah Palin ticket — and God help us if that happens. Like Palin, Perry is a pro-politician and a pro-liar, or do I repeat myself? At any rate, that’s my prediction 3.5 years out… We’ll just have to see.
Anyway, Conan . These just cracked me up today, and I hope you’ll enjoy them as well.
