Treacher Reports on Palin Misspelling

(No, there’s no actual misspelling. For those of you who don’t know, Treacher is a satirist — and a darn good one, as you’re about to see.)

Treacher:

Media Bubble, Sept. 20 — John McCain’s presidential campaign is reeling this morning upon allegations that his running mate, Alaskan Gov. Sarah Palin, is a poor speller. The charge stems from a passage found in her personal journal, which was obtained by the New York Times via an anonymous source.

. . . .

“I am gobsmacked,” said the NYT’s source. “Little did I realize when I bought a plane ticket to Alaska, broke into the governor’s house, and vetted through her personal belongings that I would find such a startling, stunning bombshell. My heartache at John McCain’s blunder is without limit. Would you like to know where I take loads?”

It’s very funny, and you should read it all.

However, the part about Sullivan is unrealistic — because the joke hinges on the conceit that Sullivan would bother to do all that work. Yeah, he’s unhinged . . . but as between his laziness and his obsession with Palin, his laziness will win out every time. As long as he can draw a full-time salary sitting on his Power Glutes and blockquoting material, adding one line of dishonest analysis here and there, he’ll do it.

  3. Yes, David, I agree. You are unhinged.

    The Times has checked into the “lies” theme concerning the campaign ads and found it was right all along.

    Besides, Zapatero is no ally of ours.
