Think, baby, think

Palin spoke after touring Xunlight Corp., one of a handful of solar technology startup companies in Toledo, a struggling industrial city in this swing state. The city's leaders are hoping that the solar companies will create jobs to replace some of those lost by downsizing in the auto industry.

But Palin made only a passing reference to solar power in her speech and instead renewed her call for more drilling in U.S. coastal waters. She repeated her signature anthem, "drill, baby, drill," which seemed to fall a bit flat on the audience at the plant even as it's become a popular chant at her rallies.

What a twit. She isn't just an insult to women, she's an insult to any thinking American.

She is, as Willie the Shake is said to have said, "The Idol of Idiot Worshipers."

That just shows what an empty shell she is.

It doesn't take much insight to understand that a Solar Company wouldn't be very receptive to the Drill Baby Drill sound bite. That's the trouble with her, everything she says is a sound bite. She is repeating lines in a play, not speaking.

That's the thing. One would think that the only reason for either of them to visit a solar plant would be to shore up their (shaky) alternative energy cred.

Sarah, your slip is showing.

"Drill, baby, drill." at a solar-power plant is like shouting "Thank you Cleveland," when you're actually performing in Chicago.

lol your ignorance of context.
