Chest-Painted Dads For Palin


Sure, Sarah Palin's totally unqualified to be president, but to the meatheads at her rallies, she's still a TUTBPILF. The NYT reports on another surefire place to go to avoid hipster baby names [two words: Maverick Maverick]:

"Katie Couric and Tina Fey are going to do their thing, but it doesn't bother me at all," said Rob McLain, an insurance agent from Avon, Ind., who attended a packed Palin rally at an amphitheatre in Indiana on Friday night. Mr. McLain wore a "Proud to be voting for a hot chick" button and was joined by his wife, Shannan ("Read my lipstick" button on lapel), and his 6-week-old son, Jaxon ("Nobama" button on beanie).

"The criticism is part of the process," Mr. McLain said, adding of Ms. Palin, "Who can't trust a mother?"

Stick that on your bumper sticker and plow through America's future with it.

Who can't trust a mother?

Like dads are inherently less trustworthy?

You don't have to look far in the news to find stories where mothers have done unspeakable things.

I guess that exposes the logic of at least one group Palin supporters.

You shouldn't quote the liberal elite media so... liberally. Oh, whoops.

I watched a little of her speech in Nevada today (on Fox, just to be objective) and it was so obvious that the same person had written all the signs that read "steve the cop" "ted the republican lackey" etc. Nice.

What made you think those guys are fathers? I didn't see a reference to it in the article (okay, I couldn't stomach that. I didn't find one via in-page search).

Looking at the enlarged image, they seem to be college-age kids. Note my careful word choice of "college-age."

And what sort of wife would allow her husband to paint his chest for another woman? Er, or rather, for another man, given that McCain is the claimed maverick. I'll believe they are Log Cabin Republicans sooner than I'll believe they are fathers.

You're probably right; I just wanted to use the picture to promote the baby name "Maverick."

I had to check twice to see if they were wearing t-shirts - these guys chests are whiter than Caspar the ghost!
