Maybe she wanted to be able to click her heels three times and disappear if she failed miserably, or maybe it’s the girly version of the power tie, either way, Palin may have stolen these shoes right off the set of Wizard of Oz.
Granted, they may be dyed crocodile skin (most likely from a crocodile shot down by Palin as she flew overhead on her way to a gubernatorial meeting) instead of red glitter, but the sparkle from her shoes brought some new spice to the VP debate.
Of course, the shoes were the only sparkling aspect of the debate. As the daughter of writers and the granddaughter of an English teacher my ears burned in shame as they heard Palin butcher the English language over and over again. (We’re talking basic grammar here folks. She can has primer?)
Let’s not even talk about her clear unwillingness to answer any question posed. If she had chosen to answer, her syntax and grammar errors would have made her answers unintelligible anyway.
As a woman who campaigned her ass off to get Hillary (blessedly eloquent woman that she is) into office, Palin’s verbal stumbling makes me want to bang my head down on the table and cry.
