Just give me twelve more days.

That’s all I ask.  Just twelve days.

For now, I find images like this one irresistible, even when I’m not a fan of the caption (for multiple reasons).

So good:

  1. Wow. That’s even better than the homemade “I *heart* Palin” sign in my neighborhood, which closely resembles the ones on the left side of this pic. As David Sedaris says in this week’s New Yorker, “calling yourself a maverick is a sure sign you are not one.”

  2. Real America. {{{sigh}}}

  3. On the other side of the ledger, one of Barry Goldwater’s – BARRY GOLDWATER! – granddaughters publicly renounced her grandfather’s party. Unfortunately, here’s how she phrased it:
    “Myself, along with my siblings and a few cousins, will not be supporting the Republican presidential candidates this year. ”

    “Myself will not be supporting–” AAAAAGGGHHHH!!!

  4. This all ain’t no problem! But check this one out I had to mark. The topic was: “Should abortion be banned?” One of my students wrote:

    “… Furthermore to have a abortion for 30 years it is illegal, because you can’t understand the life, and why you are born, or why you have a mother and when you this all knew and knew what’s a baby you can have the right answer. …”

    No kidding!

  5. Oh, but your students aren’t native English speakers!

  6. Was your student a former Miss South Carolina contestant a few years ago “and such as”?

    The rambling, nonsensical writing is strangely familiar.

  7. That “socialest” sign it would have been pretty darned witty if only they had inserted an apostrophe – as in “No effete French social’est”.
