Well, I Guess I'm Going to Hell . . .

. . . and apparently so are many of you.

According to this post on the Huffington Post, Sarah Palin announced to a gathered throng that "There's a place reserved in hell for women who don't support other women." She claimed that she was quoting Madeline Albright, but it turns out she was (surprise, surprise) MISQUOTING Albright, who had actually said, "There's a place in hell reserved for women who don't help other women." A slight semantic difference, but a difference nonethless.

Anyway, it's nice to know that Governor Palin has damned many of us to hell for our failure to support her and her "maverick" ways. Oddly enough, on Thursday, she told Joe Biden that his wife Jill, who is a teacher, would find her reward in heaven for her work. So apparently, Jill Biden's (and my) reward is a one-way ticket to hell. Well, Jill, save me a seat in the cool "Anti-Palin" room with you and Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi and Claire McCaskill and all of my friends who have been setting my email on fire with their disdain for Iditerod Barbie and her homespun homilies. If my ticket to heaven is voting for McCain-Palin (and giving my tacit approval to the filthy politics they've decided to pursue for the remainder of this campaign -- judging from Palin's recent attempt to once again link Obama with William Ayers), then I'll take hell any day!

She is a piece of work, no doubt about it. I doubt she's truly helped another woman in her life. However, I don't mind giving her a hand--right back to Alaska! (And by the way, Madeline Albright herself clarified that her comment did not refer to politics...are we at all shocked that Ms. Maverick got the facts wrong again?)

Finally, the best comment I read about that teacher line was on fivethirtyeight.com: "That is the sound of every teacher in America voting for Barack Obama. Wow. What a mistake." Amen!

At least we get a SPECIAL place in Hell.

Maybe it has cup holders!

I'm kinda bummed that as a man (last time I checked) I won't be allowed in that special place in hell for not supporting her. Ladies like that seem like the kind of women I'd like to hang around with for eternity.

That said, I'm sure Governor Palin thinks I'm headed to Hell for other reasons too, and to be perfectly honest, eternity without fellow sodomites would probably get pretty boring.
