A thank-you note from Gov. Palin

This is "the rest of the story" since Gov. Palin signed my prosthesis back in October. I actually heard about and joined Team Sarah when I found Tracey's" post about Gov. Palin autographing my leg.

I meant to write this much sooner, but have been buried under a pile of Christmas presents to sew for family until just a couple of days ago.

Last month, I sent Gov. Palin a package containing a clipping of the letter I wrote to the paper, a personal letter of thanks and support, and two sock monkeys I'd made for Piper and Trig.
A week after it arrived at her office, my mom came in waving an envelope and saying she thought I'd heard back from Gov. Palin. Here's what it contained:


Just another example (as if we needed any!) of what a wonderful, thoughtful, and kind lady Sarah Palin is. She's so very gracious that honestly I wasn't so much surprised to receive a thank you as I was surprised by how quickly she sent one.

These are the two sock monkeys, by the way. I was making them for kids in the family already (shhh, don't tell!) and thought, what's two more? The one on the left is Trig's.

Daily Funny from the Daily Mail

Via the Daily Mail:

But the Alaska governor, who has been promoted as a possible candidate in some
republican quarters, has not yet decided to mount a campaign.
She said: 'I'm
like, OK, God, if there is an open door for me somewhere, this is what I always
pray, I'm like, don't let me miss the open door.
'Show me where the open
door is.'

Anyone care to hazard a guess as to the title? Sarah Palin: God will show me a door to the White House in 2012

Um, yeah...that's exactly what she said! Much like her prayer "that we are on God's side" in the war was chopped down to, "we are on God's side." Warmonger! Theocrat!

Another article also had Palin's quote, and was titled:
God will lead me to White House: Palin
Snort. In a sled pulled by giant polar bears, no doubt, ala The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe movie. Aslan's on the move, and so's that ice-tyrant moosekiller--beware!

UNC has a new course called (I kid you not) "Effective Interactions With African American Males"

They need "Effective Interactions with Christians." The whole thing could consist of, "Clean your ears out, you nimrods!" Followed by a vigorous demonstration with Q-tips.
