First, although barely implied, there isn't a leftist Liberal bone in my body - I see nothing wrong with making fun of anyone, either or any side - it is only fair to let everyone have a turn in the barrel and her recent comments brought her back to my and my wife's discussion. And for what it is worth, I never acquainted Bush to being stupid, only looking stupid - hard to argue with that no matter how well or poor you think he did as a President.
Next, "Sharp as a Cookie" is not anyone's saying but mine, I have used it for years, and it is NOT a spin concerning tools, but a spin of "as sharp as a bowling ball" a reference to a point that there is NOTHING sharp, nor was there ever, nor could there be anything sharp about a cookie -nor bowling ball. At least tools, which I did not reference, are typically expected to have been sharp at one time - my reference had no such agenda in saying Palin is an more or less sharp as she has ever been.
If we can't make fun of our politicians, who can we make fun of.?!
