    You didn't work your way down to Alaska...
    You are going to get imPalin-ated, if you're not careful.

      When Alaska becomes a card-carrying state, I'll include it. Right now it's a forgotten province of the Yukon Territory (or perhaps Siberia). It is, however, a handy place to pick up some nice cheap North Slope oil.

        Hey, Alaska's population puts it well ahead of Bhutan, just barely ahead of Comoros and well behind Guyana. But I bet she is better looking than the heads of those states - probably shoots better too . . .

          Hey, even the cute little Island that I live on, has almost 100,000 more folks than Alaska. However, we don't have mooses , at least not live ones...
          It sounds as though Alaska is moving in that direction too.... :wink:
          By the way, I know there is no such word as mooses, and no I did not mean Moses...

            I can't wait to see what SNL is going to do with her - they are going to have a FIELD DAY!!! It'll take them several shows to to get over the Babe Factor, before they even get to the hunting and book-banning and conflict of interest stuff. I personally think she is no better or worse than any of the other 3 ticket people, but that won't mean a danged thing to the SNL writers!!!

                It all depends on what criteria you use . . .

                  I meant 'well-intentioned', but we can't say anything beyond that . . .

                        Without any effort Tina Fey already looks a LOT like Palin....I bet they have her host SNL just so she can do a whole bunch of Palin skits.
                        You there, on the motorbike! Sell me one of your melons!

                            Yeah but all those countries would fit neatly inside Canada with room to spare.


                            Not touching the Texas remark........cos some of them are people too. :P

                              I was trying to find a similar to the same theme as yours but couldn't. There must be one out there.
