I tried to watch Sarah Palin’s speech the other night, I really did. But that Governor from Hawaii was so awful I just couldn’t take anymore and went to bed. So I guess I missed Palin’s little ad lib which received great laughter from the audience:
“I love those hockey moms. You know the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull? Lipstick!”
Ha ha. ‘Cause pitbulls are funny! Unless, of course, you are the governor of a state where a young child was just taken off life support after being mauled by one. From the great Alaska blog, Mudflats:
Now let me share with you another of those headline stories from three weeks ago:
Child Taken Off Life Support After Pit Bull Attack.
This was the big news story in Alaska for several days that week. A child and her babysitter were viciously attacked by the family pet pit bull. The owner surrendered the dog, waited for the girls father to return from his deployment in Iraq, and watched as his six-year-old daughter was taken off life support after she went into an irreversably vegetative state.
I don’t know how other Alaska residents felt about the pit bull joke, and obviously her audience loved it, but most of us here in “small town America” probably didn’t find it particularly funny.
