From hate to Hope

Palin-hater Kathleen Parker gets her Hope on:
For awe is the truest word to describe what transpired and what was inspired.
It is not only awe for Obama's meteoric rise to the highest human power. It is not only that so many trekked so far to be present for the moment. It is not even awe for the peaceful transfer of power for which Americans are deservedly proud.
It is awe for what is, in fact, not change, but the natural, if difficult, progression of an ideal that is true and good and transcendent through time. Barack Obama's presidency isn't a change from, but a continuation of the American experiment toward its hoped-for destination.
If you want to know where she was during the inauguration, just look for the puddles. Puddles of Hope.


  1. I don't get it. What's "puddles" a reference to? Not that "puddles of hope" isn't hilariously bad prose, but, I don't see any such reference in the linked article. What am I missing?

  2. Here Dean, let me help you out:

    What can happen when a woman gets sexually excited? Does the phrase "not a dry seat in the house" get the image across? Or do I need to be more explicit?

  3. Kathleen Parker and puddles of hope..

    there goes my appetite.
