    Q: What's the difference between a pitbull with lipstick and Tina Fey?
    A: Tina Fey doesn't need to refer to note cards to deliver her lines.

  2. This is why I compared the bitch to Cheney--
    Sarah Palin's wasteful ways
    She poses as a fiscal watchdog, but when Palin was mayor, she grabbed city funds to give her office a pricey "bordello" makeover.

    "...According to Carney, the newly elected mayor spent more than $50,000 in city funds to redecorate her office, without the council's authorization.

    "I thought it was an outrageous expense, especially for someone who had run as a budget cutter," said Carney. "It was also illegal, because Sarah had not received the council's approval."

    According to Carney, Palin's office makeover included flocked, red wallpaper. "It looked like a bordello."

    Although Carney says he no longer has documentation of the expenditures, in his recollection Palin paid for the office face-lift with money from a city highway fund that was used to plow snow, grade roads and fill potholes -- essential municipal services, particularly in weather-battered Alaska.

    Carney confronted Mayor Palin at a City Council hearing, and was shocked by her response.

    "I braced her about it," he said. "I told her it was against the law to make such a large expenditure without the council taking a vote. She said, 'I'm the mayor, I can do whatever I want until the courts tell me I can't.'"

    "I'll never forget it -- it's one of the few times in my life I've been speechless," Carney added. "It would have been easier for her to finesse it. She had the votes on the council by then, she controlled it. But she just pushed forward. That's Sarah. She just has no respect for rules and regulations."
    The Political Cat has a fabulous collection of what Palin calls "Gotcha!" journalism, and I call "the mainstream media doing their fucking job!"

  3. Yeppers, that sounds like Chick Cheney all right, Nunya...
