The Palin Effect... on my blog.

I'm trying to avoid politics on my blog, but I saw this the other day and laughed out loud:

And while I do agree with the political statement being implied by the above graphic, I think it's actually the Bush-in-drag imagery that I really responded to. I know this because the following bit of genius photoshoppery, which I also cannot take credit for creating, makes me laugh hysterically every time I look at it:

He almost makes a more handsome woman than a president. Actually, he definitely makes a more handsome woman than a president.

And on the same subject of politics: my friend told me I needed to create a Falling Sarah Palin screensaver to go with my arsenal of other falling politican screensavers, so I said "Sure, but what should I have her falling on?" and she abuptly said "Fetuses." So introducing:

The Falling Sarah Palin Screensaver: Fetus Edition
But even though I'm proud that I was Flash-savvy enough to make the amniotic sac transparent, I think it's still kinda gross to look at, and actually probably makes a stronger political statement than I am really ready to stand by right now. So in order to soften it up a bit, I remembered Palin's pandering to soccer moms and tried another idea:

The Falling Sarah Palin Screensaver: Soccer Mom Edition
But that was almost playing it too safe. I wanted it to be edgy without being offensive, and floaty soccer balls just weren't cutting the mustard. But then I had one final brainstorm:

The Falling Sarah Palin Screensaver: Pitbull Edition
Bingo! That's the effect I was going for.

I really don't like Sarah Palin, but then I really don't like most Republicans. But that's about as political as I'm going to get on my blog this campaign season. Oh, and in case you missed it, this is probably the funniest that Saturday Night Live has been in a long time.

As the owner of a pit bull, I'm thoroughly offended by Palin's comparison of hockey moms & pit bulls. My dog will sit when I tell him to. Try getting a rabid mom to do that!

Too many fetuses! She keeps stalling out after only a few seconds.

How about Sarah falling on hockey pucks...or better yet, razor sharp skate blades!

Were you the creator of the original "falling person" screensaver things?

What!?!? No requests for a "Naked Palin"

The internet is disappointing me again...

My mom would like to see a Michelle Bachman one. Instead of soccer balls...or bubbles...she would like it to be spikey bolders.
