Sarah Palin will resign?

July 3, 2009

The only thing that comes to my mind is the old saw about how to survive in a tough neighborhood — act crazier than a hopped-up loon.  No one wants to cross the crazy guy.

Of course, neither will the neighborhood generally unite to elect the crazy guy to the city council.

Palin will resign, she says, at the end of the month.  Yeah, Larry Craig promised to resign, too.

Grandmother’s ghost said I should  check to see whether she’s been to Argentina lately.  Now she’s quietly singing “Don’t cry for me, Wasilla.”

At least she didn’t say “You won’t have Sarah Palin to kick around anymore.”  Since Richard Nixon, that line’s been better reserved for zombie movies.

Say what?

Happy Birthday, Judge Ben Davidian

July 3, 2009

George M. Cohan sang that he was a “real-live nephew of my Uncle Sam, born on the Fourth of July.”

Ben Davidian would have liked that birthdate, but truth be told, he wanted to savor the full day — so he was born on the third of July.

In April he was named by Gov. Arnold Schwarzeneggar to a judgeship in Sacramento.

Happy birthday, Ben. (Which is it:  39?  40?)   I won’t tell anyone that secretly you’re a great fan of Joan Baez.
