We took Iris to the Cole Brothers Circus performance on Sunday. It was a wild time in a blistering hot tent full of underpaid, fearsome-looking Russian and Hispanic performers.

How’s this for “elitist”?

From today’s Quotation of the Day list mailing:

“Before I became governor of the great state of Alaska I was mayor of my hometown…. I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a community organizer, except that you have actual responsibilities.”

– Sarah Palin, U.S. Republican Vice-presidential nominee, mocking Democratic Presidential candidate Barack Obama’s experience as a community organizer.

In response to Palin’s comment, some person unknown quipped “Jesus was a community organizer. Pontius Pilate was a governor.” The slogan quickly appeared on t-shirts offered for sale on-line.

*Sigh*. Is it too late to nominate someone else? I’m sure he wouldn’t charge rape victims for their own rape kits.
