Here She Comes/That Little Town Flirt/You're Fallin' For Her/And You're Gonna Get Hurt

Anyone who watched the Vice-Presidential debate last week probably noticed Sarah Palin's Lucille Bluth-like winks:

Flirting with the audience is certainly one way to get people to stop listening to what you are (or aren't) saying. I wonder though, if anyone actually is voting for McCain/Palin now, based solely on the suggestion that Sarah Palin was flirting with them.

Writer John Rogers neatly sums up the response to that:

Modern American Conservatives have sunk to the intellectual and emotional level of the guy who thinks the stripper really likes him.

I've got to take it a step further John. It's not just Palin's flirty winks, but everything any politician does EVER to get people to vote for them. If you think the politician is really listening to you, and really cares about your specific problem, then I'm sorry to burst your bubble, but the lap dance still costs $60.

Politicians are cheap strippers.


  1. I can't believe with this economy you're calling a $60 lap dance cheap

  2. lol I guess you're accustomed to $1000 ones http://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/2008/10/09/hfo-as-the-markets-sink-one-club-introduces-the-1000-lap-dance-done-with-art/?partner=rssnyt

  3. I figured there will always be a demand for lap dances.
