Well, I know one person who’s happy today: Dan Quayle. After all those years of being the butt of jokes about the spelling of potato and “what a waste it is to lose one’s mind,” he can now officially cede the thorny crown to another good-looking Republican: the inimitable Sarah Palin.
Actually, my wife’s pretty happy too. She’s been watching this video all morning. She clicks on the “play” button and she laughs and laughs. The story of an apparently drunken Paul Revere, ringin’ those bells and firin’ those shots to warn the British not to take our arms, is now seared forever into my brain.
I know: another example of the lame-stream media taking Ms. Palin out of context. Those bastards. But they did brighten the morning at Condo del Dave, and I appreciate it.
