Sarah Palin: Ahmadinejad in Heels

President of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and Sarah Palin.  One’s a naive, oil-obsessed, holy war-calling, religious extremist, and the other is an Iranian.  Here’s the Lovesick Billy take on this dynamic duo:

Ahmadinejad: Thinks the Holocaust is a myth.

Palin: Thinks evolution is a myth.

Lunch with Erin Saul of NamasteMoFo

Erin Saul had a lot to live up to before she even came to the door. Sam had gone on and on about her, and well, in the impromptu video Sam shot, she looked pretty cool. And I mean ‘cool’ in that San Francisco ‘I’m cooler than you because I live in SF’ sort of way.
