T. Coddington Van Voorhees VII weighs in on Sarah Palin:

It’s an inescapable conclusion that this woman has, in 6 short weeks, single-handedly destroyed the Republican party. Certainly George Bush may share some of the blame; but we conservatives must remember how our hopes were buoyed by his impressive bloodlines and Yale degree before we realized his excursion to Texas had caused him to “go native.” But la Palin offers true conservatives no such extenuating graces. I mean, my God, this woman is simply awful; the elided vowels, the beauty pageantry, the guns, the crude non-Episcopal protestantism, the embarrassing porchload of children with horrifying hillbilly names, the white after Labor Day. As fellow conservative commentator Andrew Sullivan quipped to me the other day outside a Martha’s Vineyard antique shop, it’s gratifying to know the Gipper isn’t alive to see what has become of his party.

But it’s not just American conservatives who are appalled. Just last week conservative New York Times columnist David Brooks and I were enjoying an apres-badminton apertif at the family weekend house in Montauk with my good friend Viscount Klaus-Maria Von Wallensheim, the conservative EU Agricultural Pricing Minister with whom I shared an Alpine chalet and manservant during our years as classmates at a Swiss boarding school. “Kloonkie” (my old school appellation for the Viscount) reported the growing dismay of the Continental Right over Palin’s embarrassing enthusiasm for childbirth and Israel.

“Coddsie, old chap,” he warned, “You know I’ve always been America’s biggest defender in Monaco. But if you elect this ill-bred charwoman, I will be forced to move anchor to St. Tropez out of pure shame.”

Such ballderdashery should never be tolerated, my good chappies.


With an extremely narrow victory in our reader poll, the Palin Facts “It’s Science!” shirt is here! And just in time for Governor Sarah Palin’s debate with Senator Joe Biden!

(Because it was so close, we’ll be doing the second one, too…but this one was needed in time for the debate. As always, just ask in the comments if you’d like it on a type of shirt we didn’t offer by default).

This is a truly great day. Chuck Norris, the Man himself, has deigned to give an approving fist pump to us as chroniclers of the Little Known Facts about Sarah Palin. He cites his personal favorites as follows:

-Sarah Palin once carved a perfect likeness of the Mona Lisa in a block of ice using only her teeth.

-Sarah Palin doesn’t need a gun to hunt, because she can throw a bullet through an adult bull elk.

-And my favorite: Sarah Palin is courageous and tough enough to shave Chuck Norris’s beard – and face off against his third fist disguised as a chin.

In honor of Mr. Norris’s compliments, we have created a design at the newly launched Sarah Palin Facts Gear, where you can purchase t-shirts and other sundries, using one of his own Chuck Norris approved favorite facts.

Via NRO’s The Corner:

Nothing can stop this sort of thing from taking on a life on its own on the web — except Sarah Palin.

When we started digging into little known facts about Sarah Palin today, we never would have guessed where it would go.  Now we’ve made Mashable.

Perhaps most interestingly (and what’s been the inspiration for this post) is the wide variety of Sarah Palin Facts that have been popping up on the various microblogging networks like Twitter and FriendFeed today. If you’ve missed them, they’re very reminiscent of the Chuck Norris Facts, and our crack team of Mashable investigators have tracked this meme back to its source, the imaginatively named Sarah Palin Facts.

I’ve selected a few favorites from the site, but I’m sure you’ve “heard” a few yourself neither we nor the SPF creators have heard of.

Little Known Fact: Sarah Palin secretly runs Mashable as a way to keep tabs on the rest of us.

There are so many of them.  It’s time the world heard the truth.
