I'm going to get in trouble for this, I just know it. I'm going to regret it! But
Now now now, before people get all in a defensive hissy or go on a Palin-bashing-fest. My conflicted amusement and deep sadness over this has not so much to do with the Republican party, but with people in general (for this certainly happens all over, not even just in politics, but ALL OVER. This is just what people DO. It is the natural way of humans).
Sometimes, I hate everyone. Then I remember to stop paying attention and it goes away after awhile.
