Comment Deleted By Left-Leaning Blogger

It finally happened to me. A few days ago, I left a comment defending Palin’s views on abortion and how her personal views don’t seem to be reflected in her governing. It was amidst 10 or so “yeah, me too” posts agreeing with the view that Sarah Palin is bound to make abortion completely illegal.

When I went back today to see if there were responses to my comment that I should answer, my comment was not there. My comment was not nasty or profane, simply disagreeing.

Now, I’m not naming the blogger. Her site is not normally politically oriented and it’s not required that any blogger leave any comment displayed. It’s her space. I tend to leave up anything that’s not laced with profanity or obviously spam. This is my space.

I’m not complaining, but simply noting that this is the first time it’s ever happened to me. Even DailyKos let my comments stand during the 2004 election. (I’ve not commented since then there.)

I suppose I just never expected it to happen to me.

Maybelline? Mary Kay?

Where are you? Who is going to be the first to come out with “Palin Pink” as a lipstick color? It surely can’t be an expensive cosmetics company. That would just taint the candidate, don’t you think?

Has anyone dared ask her what brand cosmetics she uses? Surely Charlie Gibson will do so. Surely he realizes how important this is.

In fact, I think it is important to define the exact shade of pink that “Palin Pink” will be. Because if Jamie Spears ever decides to actually send Bristol some burp cloths, she needs to know what color this actually is.

I’m fairly jealous actually that Sarah Palin does not appear to need expensive cosmetics. Unlike myself, I think she’d be as well off with Maybelline, Mary Kay, or Clinique, or brands I’ve never heard of because I’ve never been in a place that expensive.

Listen up, lipstick makers — whoever comes up with it, I’ll buy it :-)
