Today is a hot news day. Yet, although the stock market is crashing and Congress is locked in a bailout stalemate, I am having a hard time focusing on my work in the production of the next issue of The Indypendent.
That’s because I’ve gotten hooked on the Sarah Palin Baby Name Generator.
That’s right. If Palin’s interview with Katie Couric or the Saturday Night Live remake wasn’t enough of a crack up, you gotta try this.
Find out what your name would be if Sarah Palin was your mother by the automatic name generator on politsk.blogspot.com.
My new name? Wesson Scalper Palin. My colleague Frank Reynoso is Commando Coalfire Palin. And what about Barack Obama? Wood Corps Palin.
“Who knows, Wood Corps Palin you just might be president one day!,” reads the website. “Yes, the American people have learned from experience that it’s not the content of your resume but the quality of your character that will make you a good president.”
The website explains, “Sarah Palin has picked out an All-American set of names for her children. There’s Track, Trig, Bristol, Willow, and Piper. … Ever wonder, what would your name be if Sarah Palin was your mother? Well now you can find out!”
I definitely recommend dedicating some quality time during the workday for this. Well, I should really get back to work at The Indypendent, or if Palin had named our newspaper, we’d now call it the Crutch Camp.
