I’ll have a half-calf latte, please…

October 9, 2008

palin-1008-shoes-1-160.jpgA McCain supporter from Pennsylvania writes to say she attended a rally there yesterday and was impressed with Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin.

“I just wondered if you have any news photographs of Palin’s legs and shoes at that event, which I can save for my grandchildren?” she asks.

We sure do! Take your pick. From yesterday’s rally we’ve got half-calves blurred, full calves and shoes in focus, front shins blurred, etc….

In the event you want news photographs of the candidate’s actual face, well, as Palin likes to say, “I’ll try to find ya some and I’ll bring ’em to ya.

Would it be fair to say that the kid there is practically six feet under? So young…

Wait, wait, wait… Before offering up photos of the Republican VP nominee’s legs, didn’t anyone first ask what the fetish with her legs is? This would have gone directly into the e-mail folder marked “Bizarre/Never Open Again!”

No one can deny the fact that the woman has nice calves and excellent taste in shoes.

Nothing bizarre here, most men have a thing for an attractive woman’s legs and lots more than one can imagine have an actual,unrealized fetish for women’s feet and shoes.You think it’s an accident that women wear such toe crimping ,calf extending attactive shoes while men wear comfortable lace tie-up flats? Proof is right here, otherwise why all the photos? And just go on YouTube and search “foot fetish”, Palin’s shoes and legs is all over the place and there are thousand upon thousands of videos reflecting this rather common,it seems,obsession. She might be the first Vice-President ever to hold this office as a result of the American man’s obsession with her feet. This country is just getting weirder and weirder………….

The fact that you’re so knowledgeable in this arena of “foot fetishes” only makes me wonder about you a little “Alfredo”.

So will the next Oval Office scandal involve the stain on the VP’s shoes??

You don’t want to see Biden’s calves, I’m sure. Metaphorically speaking, I suspect he is a trellis for varicose veins.

I am a retired Vet who has lost respect for Sen McCain since he chose “HER” (Sarah Palin) as his running mate. It is an embarrassment to the people of the US to have to make a choice when one of the candidates is so under qualified on top of being sleazy. He had so many well qualified persons to choose from yet he chose her only because he was losing so badly and hoped she could get him the womens vote. And, perhaps she has nice legs, but will that help her brain in making appropriate decisions. I doubt it. And now, he has chosen to allow his associates (HER, and his wife, among others) to tell lies, mistruths, and name calling to disparage Obama. What a wonderful political circus. I wonder what the rest of the world thinks about this election. An election or a circus????? This has cost Sen McCain votes and will eventually cost him the election and the loss of a lot of respect.

cankles like that, and you think she’s ready to lead?

Governor Palin scares the hell out of the Democrats as well as their requisite media members. I’m truly amazed just how much attention she garners because of their fear. They are so quick to point out her “lack” of experience, whereby she has 2 years of executive branch experience as Governor of Alaska; yet Senator Obama, as a freshman senator, lacks the seniority to even chair a Senate sub-committee. But no one mentions that, because…well why don’t they mention that?

RE: Fat Ankles

On the murder of his wife, one of Oscar Wilde’s characters explained: ‘Yes; it was a dreadful thing to do, but she had very thick ankles ….’

Nice legs, true. But who in the world would vote for somebody that reminds them of a rather strict mother? OK, maybe this is just saying too much about my age and upbringing but its almost cringeworthy. Still, nice legs.

Is it true that the guy in a red McCain tee was seen between palin’s legs?
