Last November, when the rumors of a Sarah Palin book deal first surfaced, I wrote posts for DailyKos and Oxdown Gazette, called "What Can We Title Palin's Book?" In mid-November, the USA had only known and loved the Palins for a bit over two and a half months.
Here we are in mid-May, six months later. Like the aging of a bottle of Thunderbird, another six months has given new meaning, new depth to the term "Palinism," so - of course - the book titles have more depth. Also.
Here were some of my favorites from November, 2008:
In What Respect, Sarah? (large print edition only)
I'll Get Right Back to Ya, OK?
Don't Blame It On Me!
A Bozo's Guide to Children's Names
The Lyin', The Bitchin', The Wardrobe to Nowhere (from fdl's punaise)
I'll Ban THIS BOOK, Too!
Last night, at the Mudflats, commenters spontaneously started coming up with new titles like (skipping over titles and ideas similar to those last November):
Sarah: The Uncovered Truth In Her Own Words’ -- Followed by the sequel: “Sarah: The Uncovered Truth In Her Own Worlds”
“Progressing My Pocketbook in my Naughty Monkey shoes also”
The Silencing of the Turkeys
The Grapes of Graft
Sarah Palin - Corrupt but Unimpeachable
And DailyKos has a new book titling diary, called - simply - Name That Book. Hundreds of entries, and climbing. Here are a few of the top rated ones:
Bible Spice. Word Salad Made Easy. Also
Palintology: How Nominating Me For Vice President Helped Kill Off The Goposaur
Brain Freeze: The Sarah Palin Story
The Snows of Killing-a-Turkey
Sarah: The Most Important Person in the World
and on and on.
Meanwhile, Palinism has been joined in the Urban Dictionary by:
Palin Derangement Syndrome
Palin Truth Squad
and 31 other Palin-based definitions.
And I once thought Sen. Ted Stevens did more for creating internet art than any other Alaska politician possibly could.
Update - Wednesday 1:00 p.m: The Mudflats has a new post up - Name That Book!
