This post has absolutely nothing to do with my girls (and I think this is the first time since I started my blog almost a year ago that I’m writing a such a post) – but it’s too good to keep to myself.
I was talking to my mom earlier this evening, and she told me that she received a letter today, addressed to my father, who is just about nine years dead. It wasn’t just any letter. It was a missive from Governor Sarah Palin, Republican Vice Presidential candidate, asking him for a donation to the McCain/Palin campaign.
I started to laugh. “Mom, I didn’t know dad was a registered Republican,” I said. Of course he wasn’t. We’re all about as liberal as they come, and I didn’t pull my values out of thin air. As this idiocy started to sink in, I started to laugh even more.
You know the McCain/Palin campaign is desperate when it seeks out donations from life-long Democrats, but for them to go begging for donations from long-dead Democrats gives me reason to hope that Obama might actually have this election in the bag.
