I just gave an Oscar performance to a neo-con and dammit,
I want to be nominated for best actress evah!
Anyway, I've told y'all about my neocon neighbors who know I'm pretty knowledgeable about politics. These peeps are Fox watchers so immediately I'm way ahead of the game. Our patio furniture has been gone in prep for the hurricanes that never showed and today she was there waiting for me to "come and sit with me for a minute, I want your opinion on something." I avoided her a few days ago because I knew she would want to reinforce how correct she was about Obama being a Muslim 'cause he said so himself on the teevee. I didn't feel like dealing with her on that because I knew no matter what I said, he was being sarcastic and Georgy was being an ass, she'd never buy it. I already had groceries in my hand to prep for my dramatic exit.
Anyhoo, I was prepared today. I'll just do the dialogue.
HER: "Hey, I haven't seen you in ages, how've you been? Come, sit a minute, I want to ask your opinion on a couple of things."
ME: "Hi, how are you? What's up?"
HER: "What do you think of "our" Sarah?"
HER: "You know, Sarah Palin, the Governor of Alaska."
ME: "Oh, you mean McCain's "girl?" She notices my slur. "Well, to tell you the truth I don't really think one way or the other about her, she's sort of a gimmick I think." As I begin to rise from the chair with aforesaid prop of groceries in my hand, I departed with "she's sort of a silly little thing, don't ya think?"
HER: Sputter, sputter, but, but
ME: "Gotta go, Haagen Daz is gonna melt. Take care now."
