Jackson County Dems Bringing in Fake Sarah Palin - Jennifer Granholm Coming to Truman Days

Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm served as a stand-in for Sarah Palin while Joe Biden was preparing for the Vice Presidential debate. Frankly, I don't see the resemblance, other than the fact that they're both women governors who happen to be relatively young. Unlike the shrill and unqualified governor of Alaska, Granholm is smart, compassionate and successful.

She will be speaking at the annual Truman Days hosted by the Jackson County Democratic Committee. She's the real deal - political insiders see her as an up-and-coming leader on the national stage. Jackson County Dems are fortunate to have brought in such a leader for their annual conference.

I've never met a president, before or after they were elected. This could be my chance. You betcha!

Um, who is the potential president??

Granholm was born in Canada and is a naturalized citizen. Therefore she can't ever be elected president. The Constitution requires the president to be a natural born citizen.

I know there is some sentiment for amending the Constitution to change this, but do you really want to open us up to the possibility of a President Schwarzenegger?

Not at all, Eric. My dumb mistake. Thanks for catching it and correcting me.

Someone from Michigan writes-

Is today April 1st? Certainly you're pulling our leg about Granholm. She couldn't be more Republican if she turned into an elephant.

Truman Days only matters to a small group of old ladies, and most of them are from Eastern Jack; so the oh so Republican Granholm is just their speed.

Of course you know your statement that Palin is "shrill" is a very discriminatory comment. Although I'm not a Palin supporter, I do take exception to unfair characterizations of women, Republicans and Democrats.

Nuh uh, Jools. It's not fair to accuse Dan of sexism for using the term "shrill". You're way behind the times - on the internet, "shrill" is a common term generally used against leftists of both genders. See http://www.salon.com/opinion/greenwald/2009/04/18/allen/index.html, http://horsesass.org/?p=15255, or almost anytime Lieberman has responded to his detractors. I thought Dan used the word pretty deftly and nonsexistly (is that a word)?

Jools - What Kingsfield says is correct. Shrill has been altered by usage over the past years, and I was using it in the same fashion. Sorry, though, if I led you to believe that I was criticizing Palin for her gender.

Who's bright idea was it to bring in the Governor of Michigan anyway? It sounds like a painful way to spend a Saturday evening.
