Sarah Palin, fresh from the stress and strain of signing her own name hundreds of times a day, was vacationing in Hawaii. Never one to pass up an opportunity to employ her vast Latin vocabulary, Palin claims she wanted to “go incognito”, as in “incognito ergo spud” (No one knows me, therefore I yam).
“In an attempt to ‘go incognito,’ I Sharpied the logo out on my sun visor so photographers would be less likely to recognize me and bother my kids or other vacationers.
“I am so sorry if people took this silly incident the wrong way. I adore John McCain, support him 100 percent and will do everything I can to support his reelection. As everyone knows, I was honored and proud to run with him. And Todd and I were with him in D.C. just a week ago.
“Todd and I have since cut our vacation short because the incognito attempts didn’t work and fellow vacationers were bothered for the two days we spent in the sun. So much for trying to go incognito.”
First of all, couldn’t she simply buy another fucking sun visor? WTF is with colouring over the McCain? Sounds a little passive aggressive to me (merely another in the long list of signs that Palin’s three fries and a nugget short of a Happy Meal).
Secondly, does she really think (or expect anyone to believe) that she’s somehow less recognizable based on her stupid fucking visor NOT having McCAIN stamped on it? This is like an elephant showing up to a costume party wearing a pair of sunglasses.
Thirdly, how long did she expect the facade to hold? The moment she starts hollering at the kids in that twangy semi-literate voice, “Willow, you keep your eyes out there on Trigg and Tripp! Bristol…don’t swim out too far, you know, those rippy tidy water things are there, you betcha!” Yeah…everyone would just assume it’s another family of hillbillies with sprogs named Trig, Trak, Tripp, Bristol and Willow.
Fourthly, since when did Sarah Palin ever give a rat’s ass about inconveniencing anyone else? The claim that she cut her vacation short because the paparazzi were bothering other vacationers is just a front-end loader full of shit.
Incognito, indeed. She coloured out McCain in an attempt to go incognito. So much for trying incognito. The incognito didn’t work.
I have an idea. She should go back to Alaska, where everyone will at least pretend not to know her.
