Am I the only one that is disappointed with the media for not coming up with any headlines that rhyme Palin with an abbreviated gerund? C’mon guys! Here, I’ll help:

Tailin’ Palin (close media coverage)
Wailin’ Palin (complaining about close media coverage)
Nailin’ Palin (with direct questions)
Sailin’ Palin (I dunno, maybe she goes out on a yacht?)
Mailin’ Palin (a snail-mail or e-mail campaign)
Failin’ Palin (we can only hope!)
Curtailin’ Palin (get the media to ignore her for a bit)
Derailin’ Palin (her train of thought)
Hailin’ Palin (as in “to the chief”. Shudder!)
Unveilin’ Palin (for what she really is…which might result in…)
Jailin’ Palin (hopefully it won’t come to that, but if it did, some rich white guy would be…)
Bailin’ Palin (out of jail)
Exhalin’ Palin (beats me…but it rhymes)

…and finally….

Pailin’ Palin (when she gets asked foreign policy questions)

Do all the headlines need to be prose? Let’s have a little poetry in there to liven things up!

Disclaimer: None of these were meant to be remotely sexual or promote sexism or violence against women. If any of them mean that, it’s coincidental and not the primary definition of the verbs as I understand them.

    I thought of another one!

    Q: What do you call it when Sarah Palin keeps repeating the same talking points over and over again?

    A: Palin drone.

    “Am I the only one that is disappointed…?”

    I was just coming to terms with this OR SO I THOUGHT. Now you’ve opened up this wound and I have to start the healing process again.

    Palin drone is my fave.

    Palin drone is my fave.

    I thought the “queen bee” angle might be sexist, but I couldn’t figure out which against which sex. I’ll save that one for when she takes the oath of office in 2010.

    That’s so sexist. Just kidding!

    My personal favorite which I thought I had come up with on my own until I saw it on the cover of Time (or was it Newsweek?) magazine is “Palintology.”

    Hi. I used the phrase Hailin’ palin for my cartoon on YouTube. Check it out here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gqeggF5CfeQ I’m sure you’ll get a kick out of it.

    Bravo, Shaun! That was great!

    Hi Eric
    Great minds think alike, though I have to say your scenery is a lot nicer than mine here in Brooklyn! I just posted a piece on rhymes with Sarah Palin, and, as a fellow traveler, wanted to share with you: http://americanaffairs.suite101.com/article.cfm/the_sarah_palin_brand_a_name_game
