Dunk tanks are fun exhibit A

Posted: June 24, 2009 by datechguy in fun, oddities, personal

Here is the proof of the fun of dunk tanks at any party night or day:






all wet

How do we end up with senators like this in Massachusetts:

The Bay State senator was telling a group of business and civic leaders in town at his invitation about the “bizarre’’ tale of how South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford had “disappeared for four days’’ and claimed to be hiking along the Appalachian Trail, but no one was really certain of his whereabouts.

“Too bad,’’ Kerry said, “if a governor had to go missing it couldn’t have been the governor of Alaska. You know, Sarah Palin.’’

The Democratic-centric crowd laughed.

Of course they did.

It just so happens that right now Governer Palin is on her way to an undisclosed location…to visit the troops:

“She’s traveling overseas. For security purposes, the governor’s office cannot release information until it is cleared by (the Department of Defense),” said Palin’s spokeswoman, Sharon Leighow.

Leighow said Palin is travelling with Craig Campbell, commander of the Alaska National Guard, and Alaska Command Sgt. Maj. Gordon Choat. She said they’ll be going to training exercises, promotion ceremonies and hospitals. Leighow said Palin will be on the trip through the weekend.

Ya wanna laugh about that John? In my opinion she’s worth 10 of him.

Update: Hotair notices as does Conservatives 4 Palin.

…at least that’s what this ad leads me to believe.
The small text is even more amazing:

Fill your desire for something long, juicy and flamed grilled with the new BK super 7 incher?

Am I actually reading this? Can’t anyone play this game?

…or even have a chance to be nominated.

Not quite Henry Clay is it? I guess Mark Twain had it as pegged as it can be:

Of the delights of this world, man cares most for sexual intercourse. He will go to any length for it-risk fortune, character, reputation, life itself

Have ever truer words been spoken?

The sad thing is the idea could be to get this out of the way now to give him a few years to “rehabilitate” himself? If Sarah Palin is a candidate in 2012 that plan is as doomed as it can be.

Update: Interesting perspective from Roger Simon (via Glenn) but Michelle Malkin nails it.

Update 2: Welcome Anchoress and Michelle Malkin readers take a peek around. Learn how Catholic Sainthood works, see the return of Taxachusetts, ponder the relationship between prayer and probability, enjoy a little Doctor Who online comic and remember for a party, go with the dunk tank every time!

Update 3: Another difference between Sanford and Palin is where they go when the location is undisclosed.

Update 4: Did you ever find yourself typing one thing and seeing another? Corrected grammar above.
