Palin’s ignorant fruit fly remark

October 24, 2008

Some of my best friends are drosophila researchers.  There have been lots of them over the years because fruit flies are such a valuable subject for genetics research.

Palin should auction clothes on E-Bay

October 23, 2008

OK, so a lot of money was spent for clothes from companies that don’t have stores in Paducah.

The fast answer from the McCain campaign was that they would be donated to charity.

Really?  Let’s see it.  On e-Bay where everybody can see.

They could let Rush have the honors of organizing it, he apparently is familiar with how it works.

If Britney can do it, why can’t Sarah?

I bet that $150,000 worth of clothes could go for twice that amount on e-Bay.

But it needs to close before the election, just in case McCain and Palin are not elected.  The value is likely to decrease as the post-mortem analysis drags her VP selection through the mud-encrusted wringer.
