As you might guess, today's blog is about word choice. At least partially. In the middle of an article discussing the face-slapping Biden and Palin have done lately over a congressional election on my home turf of New York State, the title of this blog appears. And it's obviously a link to a video. Anyone with my sensibilities - and I know you're out there - thought something else entirely. Just saying - think before you write. At least they didn't say "pound."
Anyhow, apparently Palin is still trying to keep herself visible, and people are still accepting her endorsements. Somehow. Most of the party, including her former running-mate, have at least somewhat trashed her, but there's some force - not just her - trying to keep her in the public eye. The fear, of course, is that that force also has enough money to help her run her own campaign.
In other, more interesting news (and, oddly, the only part of this blog relating to the main image), there is a man out there who has sculpted a tiny Joe Biden. And an Aaron Burr, among a few other VPs. He's been recreating the famed Marx figurines from the 50s and 60s hat portrayed political figures of the past and (then) present for a while now, and they are wonderful. Oh, and did I mention he's a writer on Futurama? Patric Verrone's work can be found here, and you can check out a few choice VPs here and here. He'll also do custom figurines - I may be the first and only person to pay a man to sculpt Charles Curtis, but its my God-given right and I won't let anyone take that away from me.
