It’s like the antiwar movement: 90% of the people who reflexively oppose her overlap with the category of People That You Never Want To Get Stuck In An Elevator With (if for no other reason than the smell), and the people who apparently spend their lives waiting for a chance to tell the world how eager they are to have their candidate run against such a non-entity are almost as funny*. But I digress:
Turns out the hockey mom is also a motorcycle maven.
Alaska Governor Sarah Palin recently welcomed the crew from Orange County Choppers – whose custom motorcycle business is featured on TLC’s American Chopper – to Anchorage where show star Paul Teutul Sr. researched building a bike to honor Alaska’s 50-year anniversary of being a state.
“It means so much to the state of Alaska that these guys are building this bike that will honor statehood here,” Palin says in the episode, airing April 30 at 9 p.m.
Via Hot Air Headlines. I don’t watch the show myself – no cable** – but I understand that American Chopper is pretty popular. I figure that this is just one of those things, though: the Palins have always been outdoors types, the show producers know that she’d be an interesting person to do a episode with, and certainly there’s no ratings harm in having a show featuring a former VP nominee and sitting governor.
Keep that in mind when the unhinged screaming / reflexively smug sneering starts. Which it will. If Pavlov was alive today, he would have dropped using dogs in a heartbeat and used the Left-sphere exclusively for his experiments…
*It’s a shame that I don’t have tons of cash; I’d love to see a demographic survey of the divorce rate among male Palin-haters. I suspect that there’s been an uptick. I further suspect that it’s going to get higher. You can’t just bottle that stuff up when you go home, after all.
Well, I certainly hope that offended a lurker or two. I don’t like men who hate women.
**Not for any ideological reasons; it’s just that my wife doesn’t watch TV, and I was too cheap to pay the whole thing even when I was generating my own income. It’s surprisingly easy to do without.
