Irony: one of them evul librul polysyllabic words.

From CC's Irony, one learns that $arah Palin does not actually know or understand the meaning of the term ironic. Otherwise she might not have chosen to share that personal tidbit of information about herself. From here:

The vocal opponent of health care reform in the U.S. steered largely clear of the topic except to reveal a tidbit about her life growing up not far from Whitehorse.

"We used to hustle over the border for health care we received in Canada," she said. "And I think now, isn't that ironic."

One wonders if the Palin family hustle also included providing false information in order to receive "free" benefits from the Canadian publicly funded health care program. If Palin's parents paid cash for the medical services they got for themselves and their children, what motivated them to travel to Whitehorse? Superior quality of health care? Convenience? Anonymity?

The real story behind Palin's extemporaneous comment could possibly be quite revealing.

"About half of the 1,200 people in attendance gave Palin a standing ovation."

What were the other half doing? I bet they were underneath the tables, retrieving the rolly eyeballs that popped out of their sockets...

Was wondering why the emcee/interviewer didn't ask the obvious proverbial follow-up question(s), but it appears that this was part of her prepared/half-baked speech!?

Is she going to plead that because it wasn't written on her palms she didn't mean it?

I heard on Question Period this morning that the Interviewer/MC was none other than Harpercon Senator Pamela Wallen. As a fellow shrieking neo-con female, she wouldn't dare throw her sistah off her script with some pesky little questions.
