What’s in a Nickname

I too played high school basketball. How much you want to bet Sarah Barracuda had nothing to do with Sarah Palin’s athletic prowess?

Where are this woman’s friends? Where are the people closest to her who know her best? I don’t see a mad rush of lifelong Palin supporters jumping out in front of the media to talk about what an exceptional human being she is – kind, compassionate, well-educated, wise, thoughtful, giving, committed to making the world a better place. We’ve heard nothing from anyone who’s known her for more than like a week.

Someone should really start asking some questions about Sarah Barracuda and her past. I’m guessing there’s something to that nickname.

  1. Her college count is now up to six in six years (if you count her two stints at U Potato). I have a lot of friends who wandered through their college years, had to transfer, etc. But no one came close to six schools–that takes insanity or drugs or something. I’m totally intruiged.

  2. Damn, you’re good. I hadn’t settled down enough to realize we’ve heard nary a word from her college roommate(s), the PTA vice president, the hockey team fund raising chairman.

  3. Speaking of “Barracuda.” They have been using the ‘Heart’ song by that name to promote their hockey mom, and played it immediately following McCain’s speech, but they had already been given a cease and desist letter to stop them from using the song.

    And, maybe it’s just me, but it seems they didn’t properly vet the lyrics to that tune ….

    You lying so low in the weeds
    I bet you gonna ambush me
    You’d have me down down down down on my knees
    Now wouldnt you, barracuda?

    Back over time we were all
    Trying for free
    You met the porpoise and me
    No right no wrong, selling a song-
    A name, whisper game.

    If the real thing dont do the trick
    You better make up something quick

    You gonna burn burn burn burn it to the wick
    Ooooooh, barracuda?

    No?

  4. Thanks Nancy. (I really shouldn’t be having this much fun)

    And you’re right, Bill. They’re not big into vetting much of anything these days.

    I’m now obsessed with the 6 schools in 6 years thing.
