SNL -- Tina Fey Does The VEEP Debate. w00t!

So the unbelievably introverted Mr. & Mrs. NBFH attended an actual social event yesterday, one that featured many of Mr. NBFH's former work colleagues, most of whom self-identify as Republicans.

NBFH had been (she thought) very successfully making small talk with Mrs. Y, the wife of an ex-Marine colonel, mostly by nodding & saying, "mm" which is what for NBFH passes for social skills.

All seemed well until the name of Sarah Palin came up, and Mrs. Y said, cheerily, "Sarah Palin! Now isn't she a breath of fresh air?!!"

NBFH was struck dumb, frozen like a moose in the headlights.

No nod. No "mm." No nothin'.

Just a sort of hysterical choking sound as NBFH totally bit her tongue, forced a half-smile, and revealed an sudden urgent need to go find her hubby, lest she actually say to Mrs. Y what she actually thinks about the perky Mrs. Palin. Which would have been very bad manners? ; ) (Or perhaps would have been an actual breath of fresh air?)

Yeah, been there. Done it both ways. I'm getting pretty much unable to put up with people who have their heads that far up their asses.

I have raised a lot of people's hackles of late for saying things about Sarah Palin being like a hooker. What the fuck are you supposed to do when someone is trying to sell their bullshit lines by resorting to using their womanliness---call her an Amway rep? Fuck.

I think you amy be insulting hookers, democommie dear.

Cutesy-pie smiley-winky come-hither moments not my idea of womanliness.

Did you see the reaction (scroll down) of Rich Lowry?

What's up with that?

Amway. They don't have Amway here. Is that how they operate?

A post on Ed Brayton's 'dispatches from the culture wars" about Lowry is what evinced the comment from me.

She is such an empty frock.

Amway is a pyramidal home products sales operation run by reptiloKKKristicfascists from MI ( They are of course, huge supporters of Bushco fuckwaddery.
