In an arrangement not to be announced until November 4th, the upscale specialty department store chain, Neiman-Marcus and Republican Vice Presidential nominee, Sarah Palin have agreed in principal to open a chain of outlet stores offering discounted Palinwear™, while creating a line of higher-priced Palinwear™ for their upscale locations.
A representative from Neiman Marcus said their new Palinwear™ Collection will be affordable for today’s hockey mom as well as the plumbers’ ex-wives who haven’t been getting the support necessary to buy at our upscale stores.
“Of course there are plenty of women, as well as some pro-American drag queens who just want to look like Sarah,” said Neiman Marcus spokeswoman, Ann Taylor. “The clothes that were purchased by the Republican National Committee for Governor Palin will need a home after the election. We’re not talking knockoffs here. We’ll be selling those in the foreign markets overseas where Sarah’s stylings have gathered a huge, though unAmerican, following.”
Taylor said the Palinwear™ outlet may just be the start of an ever-growing “Palin-franchise.”
“We want to be the place real Americans go for Read more
Ever travel McCain/Palin, Obama/Biden Boulevard?
How about Obama/Biden, McCain/Palin Avenue or Obama/Biden Obama/Biden Obama/Biden Obama/Biden Parkway. It’s right down the street from McCain/Palin McCain/Palin Mcain/Palin McCain/Palin Drive. Once I got lost and ended up in Nader Barr Alley.
Is seems that this election isn’t about issues, it’s about how many lawn signs a candidate has.
The entire “lawn signs on the shoulder of the roads” campaign has always seemed an insult to the voter. What voter makes his decision in the voting booth based on a lawn sign? I mean other than for township supervisors. But now there are some in Bucks County, PA, a suburb of Philadelphia, who have thought the lawn sign blight on the countryside wasn’t blighty enough. The home of eloquent words from authors such as Pulitzer-prize-winning James Michener and Nobel Prize winner, Pearl S. Buck, now also seems to be the home of some rather ineloquent McCain supporters who are dealing the down and dirty card from the bottom of the Barack Obama is a Friend of Terrorists deck.
A new “10 Out Of 10 Terrorists Prefer Barack Obama/Bucks County Prefers John McCain” message has hit the byways of Bucks County. While the message Read more
Despite the claims by the McCain Campaign that Barack Obama’s tax plan will increase taxes on all Americans, an Obama spokesman today said that even the $150,000 worth of clothes and make-up that the Republican National Committee has purchased for Sarah Palin and her family since her selection as John McCain’s running mate, would fall under the minimum revenue level for a tax increase.
“We realize that to some people, $150,000 worth of clothes would be considered exorbitant,” said an Obama spokesman. “But under the Obama plan, these clothes would be able to cost another $100K before they would pay more in taxes than under Bush’s tax plan. Our plan delivers broad-based tax relief to middle class families and candidates unable to spend $250K on clothes and hair,” said Obama spokesman, David Wade. “But it goes further than Palin. Without our plan, small business owners and real Americans like Tina Fey would not be able to pay for the clothes they need to continue parodying Palin. With Barack Obama as President, one day even Joe The Plumber might be able to afford to buy Palin’s clothes.”
McCain spokesman, Tucker Bounds, defended the expenditure under the “need to clothe” tax law. “I don’t know if you’ve ever gone moose hunting,” said Bounds, “But you cannot get the stench Read more
…and Other Headlines On RNC’s Purchase of Palin’s Clothes From Neiman Marcus that are making it way too easy to write satire.
News Item: Since her selection as John McCain’s running mate, the Republican National Committee spent more than $150,000 on clothing and make-up for Gov. Sarah Palin, her husband, and her kids.
I think it’s just not fair. Satire writers spend all day trying to come up with something fairly clever, then Sarah Palin shows up, and now even the most amateur of satirists think they’re Jonathan Swift.
I mean, the McCain campaign spends a bundle trying to build up Palin as your everyday, all-American hockey mom, then they spend more money than most NHL hockey players can afford, I’m guessing to make her look like a everyday, all-American hockey mom.
The possibilites are so obvious on this one that Read more
Look at me. My head is kind of bowed as I write this. Hard to make eye-contact with you.
Shamed, as it were…or was.
Yesterday I wrote a piece intimating that the real City of West Hollywood and its real mayor, Jeffery Prang, had called for a ban on real Sarah Palin drag queens/female impersonators.
But that was a lie. Balderdash. And in my mind…a satire.
At least it was meant to be a satire, meaning that it wasn’t true, but hopefully adorably witty. But in my rush to get the story out to the masses, I inadvertently forgot to make clear it was a joke. While connoisseurs of the art might assert that the blatant mention of satire as being satire diminishes the piece to the point of no longer being the intended satire, there is the thin chance that some might have taken it seriously enough to rattle the subjects of the piece.
Though it’s hard to find anything that West Hollywood wouldn’t allow, there Read more
