Tapped out?

Did anyone else notice how often Sarah Palin used the verb "to tap" while debating Joe Biden last night? Does everyone here know that to "tap" is colloquial for "to fuck." As in, "McCain tapped that"? Is some Rovian strategist congratulating himself right now, thinking, "America wants to tap that, yes!"

Maybe I'm just losing it.

(I was mashing up some butternut squash for dinner when in her first answer Palin said something about "Saturday soccer games." I screamed and almost threw a spoonful of mashed squash at the TV. Then I realized that I was in my own house, it was my TV, and I really like mashed butternut squash and didn't want to waste it on her.)

Speaking of Sarah Palin: Don't forget that it is still Banned Books Week!

Yes, I noticed that too. Did she mean tapped into or chose or what?

Well, she said McCain tapped her - as in chose her. But I thnk she also used "tap" to talk about tapping into resources. But REALLY I think it was a Republican strategy to suggest sex. I think they're trying to sell her as MILF.

I have officially become a conspiracy theorist.

You know what? I don't want my next door neighbor to be my vice president. I want someone smarter than me. Not a six schools in six years journalism major. Do you know the last time a journalism major was president? Warren Harding. And yeah, he proved that journalists should NEVER be president.

Wow, Warren Harding was a journalism major? My mind is boggled.
