After two straight political posts, let's get back to what we do best: Being jerks.
Slack LaLane co-founder Don Fiedler and I had some brunch with our main squeezes and some associates yesterday when we started talking about The Politics. We discussed Palin's well-delivered though monumentally dumb zinger about how community organizers are like mayors without the responsibilities (the line that set me off on Thursday), and that's when we figured out who the perfect running mate for Obama would have been.
Obama should have picked that poor Austrian woman whose father locked her in their windowless basement for 24 years and fathered seven children with her. I'd love to see her step up to the DNC podium and take this cheap shot at Johnny Mac:
"I guess a prisoner of war is sort of like being locked in your basement for 24 years, except that you aren't raped by your dad."
Full applause. Tons of laughs. Check mate, fuckers.
