In the spirit of reaching across the aisle--Track Palin sounds sorta bad-ass. Like a gumshoe private-eye, or something.

I mean, god forfend the Palins see the inside of the White House unless they take the tour. But I cannot strike a blow upon the child's name. I cannot, sir.

Also in the spirit of being fair:

As Jon Stewart quipped during the DNC, "Joe Biden, introduced by his son Beaux Biden. And his other son, Banana-Fanna-Fo Biden."

Your spirit of fairness insults me. Her children's names are silly. That is all there is to it.

Confess it, or I shall have my men take your heads.

I kinda like 'em actually... having the balls to name your kids Piper, and Willow....

Freeman said...

...the balls?

if this woman has anything, it's balls.

Freeman said...

She named her kids the sort of things you name pets.

Alison Croggon said...

Yep, great names for dogs. She clearly is unaware that "bristol" is British slang for breasts. As in "cor, wot a pair of bristols..."

Not to pick on Trumbull (never!) -- but every decision that someone in Gov Palin's position (e.g., VP candidate) makes is fair game and worthy of evaluation. The names she gives her kids reflect an independence of spirit, I guess, but also, I'd argue, a kind of self-indulgent calculation--a way to say, at her kids' expense, look at me, I give my kids cool and/or flashy names.
