Palin & Grammar III

During a quick stop at a diner in Cleveland, Ohio, Sarah Palin was asked for her
reaction to the AIG bailout.

“Dissapointed that taxpayers are called upon to bailout another one,” she said. “Certainly AIG though with the construction bonds that they’re holding and with the insurance that they are holding very, very impactful to Americans so you know the shot that has been called by the Feds its understandable but very, very disappointing that taxpayers are called upon for another one.”
Please, please start separating your thoughts into actual sentences.

Is Sarah Palin coming to Los Angeles soon? Would someone let me give her my copy of Strunk & White?

Have you registered anyone to vote? Do you just sit on your ass all day and bitch? Have you done anything besides this?

To answer your very thoughtful and provocative questions in order:

1. No, not yet. I will, however, be signing up for a carpool to drive to Nevada one weekend to register voters. Does this put your mind more at ease?

2. Yes. I make an hourly wage doing so. Isn't it wonderful? Oh, I also get a lot of reading done, which requires little to no bitching.

3. Yes. Wait. What are you talking about? "Anything besides this" is a pretty broad category. I do lots of things besides this. Keep in mind, this blog is a personal blog. I don't think it's making an impact on anyone who doesn't already share my point of view. If I thought that, I'd be trying to craft far more tempered and reasonable entries about what's pissing me off, rather than merely venting. But I assume that only people who know me are reading this, so I vent. Fear not, my ego is firmly in check and requires no outside assistance.

Side note: You're welcome to keep reading, but no one forced you to read my bitching - and I am fully aware that that's what I'm doing. I'm not looking to antagonize you, I'm looking for a healthy expression of my frustration. If my opinion is making you angry, I would say you shouldn't read this blog. Unless you want to be pissed off at me, which is fine. By all means, stick around. In fact, if you want to write your own opinions in an e-mail to me, I'd be happy to post it as a counter-point entry. I'm curious about what you'd have to say. marktwain at lindsaykatai dot com

Questions for you:
1. What do you do all day?
2. What brings you round these parts?
3. Do you disagree with my opinion that Palin is an awful speaker when put on the spot? What is your basis for thinking otherwise?

Oh, and Anonymous, if you want a really good blog about politics and frustration, visit my friend David's blog at He is very intelligent and far more evenly tempered. Here, I am just trying to amuse people with my blustering.

That's okay? I mean, I don't think you need to apologize, but thanks all the same.
