I am taking up Dana Milbank’s challenge: a month-long moratorium on commenting on the antics of our Sarah.
Instead of providing Palin with a public platform for her deep-seated need for recognition, the translation of which morphs into millions of dollars for her, which in turn is plowed right back into efforts to spout her venom, I will cease commenting (let’s face it —- it is unadulterated criticism) for the next 30 days. This is going to be difficult for me and my posts probably will not be as much fun, but I am going to give it my best shot. These little personal contests are healthy every once in a while. Who knows? I might benefit from the lack of conflict. This dare just might stretch my intellectual capacity by forcing me to pay attention to targets and issues that are not such a slam-dunk. Maybe Palin, would also take a vow of silence, and would benefit from a month’s retreat from her public presence by picking up a book or two. So sorry: had to get in one last jab.
During the interim, I will be keeping careful track, but not posting, her public discourse. At the end of this period, I will either inundate you with a flood of Palinisms or extend my period of peacefulness.
Dana and Yo Mama: let’s see who breaks first. I guarantee you that our Sarah will be the first to open up her mouth about our Sarah.
