Shelf Check 261

Admittedly, Palin doesn't seem big on cultural centers by her record, but she's never been behind any bans. Hell, even the social-con crap that would normally induce my gag reflex - gay marriage, creationism - seems confined to her personal outlook rather than to public policy, and if there's one thing you can say, she is not shy about effecting public policy.

Harry Potter character comparison... hm, I guess I'll go with Amelia Bones, but I think a closer parallel would be Harvey Dent in the first half of The Dark Knight.

Hey, Naomi--I was referencing the Time article about Palin that mentioned book banning, also quoted here: http://www.librarian.net/stax/2366/sarah-palin-vp-nominee/

This is sweet!

[Ed. note: being a fifty-something curmudgeonly old librarian, I've never actually used that expression before.]

My biggest worry is that everything about Palin will appeal to the resentful, anti-intellectual, anti-liberal, anti-[your values here] voters who gave us four years of Shrub.


But thanks for the laugh.


BTW, I've added your blog to my Links.

Oy, oy...!

I meant eight years of Shrub. I'm stuck down here in the hurricane state that helped him steal two elections, so I guess my head is spinning.
