From my pops, regarding a conversation he overheard in my hometown of Clio, Michigan. The names have been changed to protect my dad. Also, please be aware that VGs is our local supermarket.
I was at Rotary this morning and watched the following conversation between Jim Growly, cigarette smoking cynic / pragmatist, and Grace Happypants, superintendent / ex cheerleader:
Jim: When I listen to her [Sarah Palin] I expect her to pull out a flaming baton and twirl it for the talent competition.
Grace: I like her.
Jim: Do we need a no-talent beauty queen as our Vice President?
Grace: I really like her.
Dennis: Do you all realize that Bill Jones (our mayor/VGs bag boy/fellow Rotarian) is qualified to run for Vice President of the United States?
Bill: Actually, I am more qualified. I’ve been mayor longer than she was.
Grace: I don’t care, I really like her.
Clio has spoken.
