Topic: " Putin' Out" (5)
Frodo was deeply engrossed in the news of the day, and almost missed an apparent off-hand comment from the former Governor of Alaska. Sarah Palin announced that there was no truth to the rumor that she and Todd were contemplating divorce. Now Frodo is no authority on matters of this nature, but he learned a long time ago that a denial by a politician of something contemplated by absolutely no one generally precedes an event of some magnitude. As he raised his eyes toward the black-and-white, the picture was changing to images of the masculine symbol of mighty Mother Russia. It was another series of shots of Putin, bare-chested again, and his tensed "pecs", on horseback, and on display.
How could Frodo have missed the signs?
Sarah said that Putin was flying over all of the time, and that she was watching from her front porch. Now, here he is, for the second time, in something like GQ, strutting his stuff.
Does the Appalachian Trail run from South Carolina through Alaska to Siberia?
Sarah resigns her position as Groovenator of Alaska, closing out her responsibilities with a rambling love poem that could be best scored with the music from a balalaika (and the irrepressible William Shatner doing his best Rod McKuen imitation). She then fails to show up for her scheduled appearance to honor Ronald Reagan (which is not much different from the Pope missing Easter Sunday entirely).
Hey, isn't that the same guy ticketed on the next Alaskan Airlines plane that sat up all night outside John Edwards' hotel room for the National Enquirer?
Inquiring minds want to know (wink) (wink).
