A Special Pearl Harbor Remembrance from Sarah Palin

palinTruly, Sarah has long demonstrated leadership qualities…if one means a bad chapter of the Kiwanis Club. From The New Yorker comes this story of why Palin only spent a brief period as a college student in Hawaii.

Palin’s father, Chuck Heath, gave a different account to Conroy and Walshe. According to him, the presence of so many Asians and Pacific Islanders made her uncomfortable: “They were a minority type thing and it wasn’t glamorous, so she came home.”

Truly, the dawn of a great Republican career — although Cokie Roberts would probably approve

Meanwhile, we all know where the President’s going for the Holidays — I’m willing to bet ol’ Sarah hasn’t changed her prejudices one bit.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
