Sarah Palin, Incitatus, Mr Ed and horses for courses

The lady who understands Russia because it is not too far from Alaska, Ms Sarah Palin, is back tackling the big issues after her guest appearance on 'Oprah' and there she is having a wee dig at the hype man, and generally getting ready to get herself back onto the world stage. Yes, if we thought Caligula making his horse, Incitatus, a senator was a big bad joke enter Ms Sarah Palin.

'The Jerusalem Post' reports her giving her tuppence worth on the illegal settlements and deciding that the settlements have to expanded because, "Jews need a place to live". Yes, they have to expand because, as this full grown half wit says, "that population of Israel is, is going to grow. More and more Jewish people will be flocking to Israel in the days and weeks and months ahead." Of course, Sarah is too dense to even consider where they are flocking from. Yes, they are just flocking, flocking, flocking!

Unfortunately, Sarah really makes it easy for us not to take her seriously and this is the problem. For while we might agree with the 'New York Times' critic, David Brookes, when he called her a joke, we should be wary when he says, "The idea that considered seriously for the Republican nomination? Believe me, it will never happen." Sorry, Mr Brookes, sometimes we get a better view here on the outside looking in, and there is more than enough evidence to suggest that this lady can go all the way.

Finally, it is not known how much about Incitatus is truth and how much is legend but we do know from a certain Mr Ed that horses, when they do speak, don't have to spout out the sort of drivel that we have come to expect from Ms Palin. We also know that Mr Ed's tuppence worth was only heard by Wilbur and that unlike Incitatus he had neither a political sponsor nor political ambitions of his own. Now, isn't it time that Ms Palin's family and friends were the sole beneficiaries of her "words of wisdom"? Unfortunately, it would appear that, despite David Brookes thinking otherwise, Ms Palin will be the next Republican candidate for president and, while I don't want to flog a dead horse and I certainly don't want to put the cart before the horse, it really is going to be horses for courses and this particular trojan horse for big business is certainly not going to be a dark horse. After all, coorporate America does not back the wrong horse and, yes, we are going to be hearing a lot more drivel from this particular horses mouth.
