27. They might as well rent a bunch of bouncy houses

9. How succulent that would be

I mean we'd have a misplaced canadain/texan running and a real live hair-brained texan running, how cool is that? The horses will be glad to see that as the spurs will be used on each other rather than on them. Now I can get behind that

Goooo Louuuuuie

and then I remembered.
Palin was just poor trailer trash before she made a killing on the campaign trail.
