A Warm Welcome to Sarah Palin as a Member of HubPages!
Sarah Palin has joined HubPages, and I couldn’t be more tickled. Her comments are funny, and she’s giving us some very insightful glimpses about what lurks beneath the surface of her fancy updo. I’m her number one fan, and I spend lots of time stalking…um, I mean…following her activity around HubPages. It’s always good for a laugh, and it’s enabled me to gain some valuable inside observations and ideas about her that I’d like to share here.
I recently read a comment written by Sarah that stated, “I’ve taken care of Joe the Plumber.” This can mean just about anything, but I happen to have inside information that the two of them were seen doing ‘the wild thing’ in Wal-Mart. After asking her about this, her reply to me was, “I don’t remember.” That pretty much means YES. Also, I’ve recently been informed that she was overheard calling Joe by another name…”Joe the Pumper.”
I'm sure you've noticed that huge fish Sarah’s holding in her avatar picture. The last time that fish was spotted, it was in Obama’s bed. We all know what it means to find a dead fish in your bed. While there's no proof that Sarah had anything to do with this, it’s also highly suspicious that she was overheard saying, “Let’s see him put lipstick on that sucker.”
She might be a robot. I first learned about this at B.T. Evilpants’ hub. One thing that makes me suspicious of this is how her answers to questions seem to be previously recorded and selected at random resulting in her giving an answer that at times has nothing to do with the question. Another possible clue is the fact that Sarah hasn’t actually written any hubs. If she is a robot, then perhaps her creator hasn’t had time to program her for hub writing. Of course, this could all be coincidence, and I haven't decided one way or the other about her being a robot.
Update! Strike that last clue...she has published a hub: The Bridge to HubPages
Now don’t misunderstand my intentions here, I admire Sarah. Any woman who can go from cheering for her kids at a hockey game with other hockey moms, stop off to buy diapers at Wal-Mart, then scout out moose from a helicopter and still manage to make time to run for Vice President is magnificent in my book. Plus her way with words is simply, well, there are no words to describe her way with words. I can only give a couple of personal examples, and please keep in mind that she talks very differently from how she writes.
First Question and Answer
I saw Sarah at Wal-Mart shortly after the election, and she made herself very approachable although she seemed a bit frustrated about not being able to find any moose jerky. Even though she was clearly distracted, I couldn’t resist asking her the following question:
“It’s rumored that you had something to do with having that big fish put in Obama’s bed. Is this true?”
Her friendly reply was:
“Well, ya know, those big ole fish are probably the whole darned cause of global warmin’ but I don’t wanna talk about that issue because nobody really knows what causes the globe to warm like that except some a those activist, brainy types who wouldn’t know how ta sell a darned thing on eBay which is what really matters in the big picture of this big ole global warming world of ours like those cute little towns or countries or whatever you call those places where people talk another language.”
Second Question and Answer
Before letting go of her arm so she could leave, I was able to ask one more question:
“What are your plans now that the election is over Sarah?”
She was kind enough to take another moment to say, “Main street, Wall Street, curvy streets, dead end streets, streets to nowhere…I don’t really know the difference, but I’m gonna be workin’ on that when I’m not huntin’, fishin’, governin’, and bossin’ Todd around because the backbone of this fine country of ours is workin’ moms, hockey moms, pit bulls and other common stuff that makes people get their gosh darned hands dirty so they keep on thinkin’ about stuff and wishin’ for stuff and then thinkin’ about more stuff.”
That is so profound. I need to take pause for a moment.
It has crossed my mind that Sarah could be joining communities like HubPages as a way to gain popularity and potential votes down the road. On the other hand, my surveillance of her hubtivity is showing she has an interest in shopping and fashion. I spotted her at one hub shopping for sexy Christmas outfits, and then at another hub shopping for rain boots. Very interesting stuff here. I think someone's gonna get lucky this year on Christmas day.
No matter what her reasons are, I am thrilled she's here, and I welcome her!
