“I think there’s a really good chance that Sarah Palin could be president, and I think that’s a really scary thing, 'cause I don’t know anything about her -- I don’t think in eight weeks I’m going to know anything about her. I know that she was a mayor of a really, really small town and she’s the governor for Alaska for less than two years. I just don’t understand. I think the pick was made for political purposes.... Do the actuary tables and there’s a 1 out of 3 chance, if not more, that [John] McCain doesn’t survive his first term and it’ll be President Palin…. It’s like a really bad Disney movie. The hockey mom, you know, ‘Oh, I’m just a hockey mom’… and she’s facing down President Putin [of Russia]…. It’s totally absurd …. It’s a really terrifying possibility.”
The idea behind this blog is to post stories, comments, essays and images - with a little humor, glamour and spirit mixed in - that inform our perceptions and bring to life the extraordinary day-to-day events in this historic election. Hopefully some of what you see on Chill Baby, Chill will inspire you to get involved, so together, on our common ground, we can make some difference and maybe, just maybe, change the country. I invite everyone to participate with comments, questions and any thoughts in general.
If you'd like me to post something written by you or someone else, please send the piece to firstname.lastname@example.org.
