Sarah Palin: She’s not a mini-van … she’s an Escalady!!

By liam

A few months ago, I wrote this little piece about ‘the Escalady’ .

Now, it seems, this piece was fairly timely in that it is a much more accurate description of the new Vice-President nominee, Sarah Palin.  In fact, so many Republicans (and Conservatives) seem to want to latch on to this ‘demographic’ like they’re all friends and they have so much in common.

Yeah.  Like water and cement have a lot in common.

I suppose it has worked in the past, trying to create empathy with a class of people that aren’t just driving a minivan, they’re driving a 1992 Chrysler minivan that’s at risk of losing the floor.

What do you think?  Do you agree that Sarah Palin is more like the Escalady than the minivan mom?  How do we make it stick?
