Just Like Dr. Pepper, So Misunderstood! Part II

Continuing our look at the Dr. Pepper/Princess ad campaign.

Kids, I thought we would take a few moments and remember some of the highlights of Princess Sarah’s run for the veep job. Let’s start at the beginning, the reason she was picked. From The National:

Phoenix // Some say John McCain had the decks stacked against him. Others say he ran an erratic campaign. Many believe the Republican Party has simply lost touch with moderate Americans.

A day after Barack Obama and the Democratic Party gave the Republicans an ample drubbing, winning the White House and majorities in both houses of Congress, Republicans were picking up the pieces, trying to figure out what went wrong and where to go from here.


Political scientists said the ordinarily moderate Mr McCain had pandered too heavily to the religious right, reversing his earlier positions on ethical issues such as abortion and choosing Sarah Palin, a Pentecostal Christian, as his running mate.


Will we ever forget the tender moments, like Princess hiding behind her little girl at the hockey game?


And will we ever forget this?


Oh crap! Sorry, kids, my bad! 😳 That’s from the Cindy Lou/Dr. Pepper series!

Okay, back to Princess. We can’t think of Alaska without thinking about Uncle Ted!


Of course, there were the controversies as well. The election is over, so let the mudslinging begin! From Politico:

John McCain’s campaign is looking for a scapegoat. It is looking for someone to blame if McCain loses on Tuesday.

And it has decided on Sarah Palin.

In recent days, a McCain “adviser” told Dana Bash of CNN: “She is a diva. She takes no advice from anyone.”

Imagine not taking advice from the geniuses at the McCain campaign. What could Palin be thinking?

Also, a “top McCain adviser” told Mike Allen of Politico that Palin is “a whack job.”

Maybe she is. But who chose to put this “whack job” on the ticket? Wasn’t it John McCain? And wasn’t it his first presidential-level decision?


Of course, that’s just sour grapes. None of that is true. Just ask Princess!


Ah, good times!

    I hope they can hear us laughing all the way to Moose-illa!

    nonnie, what can I say? Nobody does it better…

  2. i think there are very many embarrassed moosilians. serves them right for foisting princess on alaska and, in turn, the rest of us by electing the moron mayor in the first place. all i can say is that they have ruined northern exposure for me for all time.

  3. God, what a hoot.

    These $hitheads don’t care about Jesus, either. They just like to hit people with that big ol’ cross.

  4. p.s. How bout sticking a testicle in Palin’s ever-open mouth? Squirrels love nuts!

  5. hi lulu! 😀
    they care only for themselves. they made that clear by supporting an imbecile that would bring down the country but would push their fundie agenda.
    what’s the sense in putting a testicle in princess’s mouth? she’s already got balls!

  6. the artist known as nonnie only gets better and better (and better)

  7. sam! 😀
    what a nice surprise! you finally left a comment here! i’m honored!

  8. awwww, thanks dcAp! 😳

    thanks bunches, nonnie! and have fun living in a blue state!

  10. it’s nice to be a blue state again. i didn’t recognize it for many, many years. 🙂

  11. Poor Alaska. After decades of hiding out and trying to stay out of the limelight, Stevens and Palin exposed the state as being one big dysfunctional nut haven.
    Seriously, Alaska is famous for being the last great hideaway for criminals on the lam, misfits, loners, meth makers and survivalists.
    Their leaders exemplify the state.

  12. Two of the loopiest nut cases I ever had to deal with on the Internet were from Alaska. One of them was the 1998 Alaskan Independence Party candidate for Governor, who was so nutty (as well as likely too liberal) for the AIP higher-ups to endorse her (that’s right; they didn’t even endorse their own candidate). The other I won’t identify, because he’s both violent and lawsuit-happy.

  13. karen,
    poor alaska? they got what they asked for! if they didn’t elect crooks, they wouldn’t be getting so much attention. i hope all their eskimo pies melt!

  14. neon vincent,
    being independent and proud is one thing. being bat$hit crazy is another. what a shame that such a beautiful place has been taken over by a fringe element. maybe they’re all just pissy from having to pay extra postage for their mail-order purchases.
