Sarah Palin Metaphor Watch: How Like an Alien in a UFO Sarah Palin Is!

Is John McCain’s VP pick, Sarah Palin, an alien?

She moves around in an impervious capsule of far-right media rectitude—and that’s kind of like how an alien would move around, ensconsed in an armored machine, safe from anything unpredictable that it couldn’t perfectly control.

And we get glimpses of her in soft focus, from a distance, as she moves around real fast, ever ducking our questions.

That’s definitely like an alien.


And she’s trying to take over the White House.

That’s totally what an alien would try to do!

I think Sarah Palin is an alien.

Maybe if we make a big mountain of mashed potatoes for her to land on, she’ll come out of her machine and talk to us.

Do you think?

  1. Yeah, and her daughter is pregnant! And nobody knows who the REAL father is. Stay tuned for the Alien-Human hybrid!

    the evil-alien seed angle hadn’t occurred to me—but it sounds reasonable.

    at least as reasonable as anything that sarah palin already apparently believes.

    good analogy! 🙂 protected, just out of reach, visible only when she chooses, easy access to control of this country.

    She does have that odd skin on her neck like the lizard aliens from that show V.

    It’s always amazing how liberals attack and destroy people and things they don’t understand. Why not discuss the issues and how Palin’s differ from your own. Or perhaps you can’t articulate them. So go ahead and just sink to trash talk. It’s terribly intelligent.

    At the time that I wrote this, Palin was isolating herself from media questioning. And she never held a press conference—not one during the whole campaign.

    I spent a good deal of time on this blog discussing issues, and articulating my problems with Palin’s views.

    Palin did not seriously expose herself to intellectual discussion or unscripted give and take, and this is why I engaged in the above parody.
