Meg Stapleton is not a good spokesmonster

"Trig is our 'blessed little angel' who knows it and is lovingly called that every day of his life."
-- Meg Stapleton, Spokes-Orc for Former Something-or-Other Sarah Palin, as quoted in MSNBC's First Read, "Palin vs. Levi -- again"

HT Immoral Minority.

Two words: Puh. Leese. NOBODY'S child -- at least nobody's child that didn't grow up to be some kinda Baby Jane or Li'l Lord Fauntleroy is called "our little blessed angel" every day of his life. Unless, of course, "blessed" is some sort of euphemism for holy terror.

Far be it for me to write anything naughty, but reading Stapleton's press release was like experiencing it got my glands all riled and then made with the big let down.

1. "We have purposefully ignored the mean spirited, malicious and untrue attacks on our family."

-- Ok, good start, feeling the burn rising, although it's somewhat dampened by the over-general use of the assumption "attacks" (coulda been just, y'know, reporting), but let's leave that for now and keep going...

2. "We, like many, are appalled at the inflammatory statements being made or implied."

-- Yeah, yeah, that's right, laughin' at the "retarded baby" *is* pretty harsh, give it to me, give it to me....

3. "Trig is our 'blessed little angel' who knows it and is lovingly called that every day of his life."

-- *Air-escaping-from-a-balloon sound* Oh, so close. My...interest...has been deflated by her over-the-top and overly-saccharine ridiculousness.

Next time, Meg, I'd suggest *not* shopping for Hallmark cards before writing up public statements. Or at least forgoing the "blessed little angel" aisle.


And now, cuz I can't get it out of my head, here's ShaNaNa covering Curtis Lee's "Pretty Litte Angel Eyes":
