moose hunting!

Dave Barry = Best Election Coverage EVER. A sample:

"But the McCain camp is defending Palin's résumé, which, aside from being a governor and a mayor, includes being a mom, playing basketball, hunting moose and being runner-up for Miss Alaska 1984. There was some grumbling among Republican insiders that McCain would have been better off choosing somebody with a thicker résumé, such as Mitt Romney, who actually won Miss Alaska 1984.

"But the choice has been made, so the question now is: Does Palin really have what it takes to carry out the duties of vice president of the United States? Specifically, would she go moose-hunting with lawyers? Because if so, let's vote her in NOW."


I'm going to be hugely disappointed if this year's campaign doesn't feature at least one moose hunt. Especially since Governor Palin is from a state that has a moose roadkill distribution program. You sign up. On a list. There's a separate list for programs that serve those in need.

Goodness, I love America.

You are a little obsessed with this moose thing, my dear! Did you have an unhappy Bullwinkle experience as a child? ;)

No! My friend Allison and I just always wanted to see one in New England, and I have yet to see a real, live, unstuffed moose.

Also, I think a vice-presidential moose hunt would be a defining moment in the history of American politics.
