Palin keeps Michigan in her sights

From James Cameron's 1997 hit movie Titanic(Kate Winslet as Sarah Palin, and Leonardo DiCaprio as "Michigan)

"Hold on Jack!"
"I'll never let go."


First THIS:
"Todd and I, we'd be happy to get to Michigan and walk through those plants of the car manufacturers," Palin said, referring to her husband. "We'd be so happy to get to speak to the people in Michigan who are hurting because the economy is hurting."

Palin acknowledged the GOP ticket's lackluster poll ratings in the state, but said: "I want to get back to Michigan and I want to try."


"I want to try." How refreshing is that!? I have an image of Sarah doing a Jerry Maguire, "help me to help you" plea to us. (Cuba Gooding Jr. plays the part of "Michigan" in this clip from the movie)

Then THIS:
Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin continues questioning presidential candidate John McCain's decision to abandon efforts to win Michigan.
"Honestly, in Michigan, we are hurting so bad," she said. "We don't want to hear just 'by golly, aw shucks.' We want to hear what are you going to do to help everyday citizens."
Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm

Seriously Jenny? Did you say that with a straight face? Nice and professional of you to make fun of her dialect, eh? (dialect: a regional variety of language distinguished by features of vocabulary, grammar, and pronunciation from other regional varieties..), you elitist Canadian snob. The "everyday citizens" of Michigan don't need any more of the kind of "HELP" you and your ilk bring to the kitchen table.

All I have to say, by golly, is COME BACK!


or if you prefer...
Don't give up on us baby!

Baby Come Back
