Pit Bulls Are Hilarious!

Here is one of those moments from last night's speech when Sarah Palin was demonstrating that the presidential race is very definitely NOT about her precious back-story or her family's precious back-story but about The Big Issues Facing the Country and How McCain-Palin Will Bring Needed Reform and Shake Up Washington and stuff:

I love those hockey moms. You know, they say the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull? Lipstick.
Didn't we all nearly soil ourselves from laughing at that priceless zinger? Well, maybe not. It turns out that just a few weeks ago, one of the biggest stories in Alaska concerned a pit bull -- the sometimes-vicious dog breed, not Sarah Palin without lipstick:
A child and her babysitter were viciously attacked by the family pet pit bull. The owner surrendered the dog, waited for the girls father to return from his deployment in Iraq, and watched as his six-year-old daughter was taken off life support after she went into an irreversably vegetative state.
I believe this establishes that Sarah Palin is a heartless, tone-deaf harpy in addition to being unqualified for the vice-presidency.

She's also off to a roaring start with spreading self-serving lies and half-truths -- being pressed into the national spotlight so suddenly calls for an elevated pace to this, I gather.

Pit bulls are illegal in Denver and some of the surrounding suburbs due to a handful vicious attacks upon people. Hopefully, the voters here will treat Mrs. Palin the same way in November.

Honestly, I don't like those dogs. They frighten me in the way that other commonly-seen animals never do (pigeons, ducks, squirrels, chihuahuas, beagles, poodles, cats, land orcas, bigfoots, miscellaneous dogs, crabs). More exactly, I don't like the people who seem to gravitate to those dogs and turn the innocent dogs into monsters.

They're not funny. And certainly not in Alaska right now.

This is unfair! Whoever coined the Pit Bull with Lipstick for Sarah Palin is doing a disservice to man’s best friend giving Pit Bulls a bad reputation.
