Sunday Mandala: Sarah Palin Edition.

sarahpalinmandala

I have watched the speech three times since I posted my original thoughts, and I still cannot understand a thing Sarah Palin was trying to say. I love it. It was like performance art. It makes you wonder.

Please, Sarah. Please don’t disappear. You make me laugh. You make me laugh a lot. Things just wouldn’t be the same without you.

Sarah Palin is more than just an action figure.

SarahPalinSuperHero

Sarah Palin is the most entertaining politician in the world. Today’s resignation speech was straight out of a Tom Robbins novel. Brilliant, free-wheeling, stream-of-consciousness poetry. If she is really about to be indicted by the feds, I am really going to miss her.

Iran is won, it is only a matter of time.

The first segment of the Rachel Maddow show last night was one of the most inspiring things I have seen. It gave strong evidence that the opposition movement in Iran is on the verge of victory. It was so good that I want to re-phrase it in my own words.

It started with the eight Iranian soccer players that wore green accessories to show their support for the movement. There were words about their courage, and the risks they were taking.

There was coverage of the marches, including one of the most amazing protests I have ever seen on film. There were no chants. They marched in silence. They were totally coordinated and controlled. When the state police riot squad showed up, they passed the word quietly. They did not throw rocks. They did not hurl insults.

They all sat down.

The guest explained the inner workings of Ayatollah politics, and that was the thing that convinced me that this battle is won. He said that the days of mourning that are beginning today mark a tidal wave that will not be quelled. The protestors that have been killed so far will be honored as martyrs. There will be more deaths today, and another day of mourning tomorrow. And so on. And so on, until the government is overthrown.

Perhaps the most amazing part was the fact that Ayatollah Khamenei is pretty low on the spiritual totem pole when it comes to power from God. One of the Ayatollahs above him has made it a mortal sin to fix elections. Another is supporting the opposition. The guys that are closest to God seem to be ready for a change.

Anyway, that’s my version of Rachel’s amazing show. Click the link and watch it if you missed it last night. It’s a great day to be a freedom fighter.
