Yam - you may have heard this, but I will pass it on:I was talking to a friend in Anchorage about Sarah Pallin. He told "Well, you know, she is a post turtle.""A post turtle? What do you mean - I don't get it", I said."Well, if you are driving down the the road and see a turtle stuck up on top of a fence, that's a post turtle.""Uh-huh. I still don't get it", I said."Well think... what do you think when see a post turtle?1. You know it did not get there all by itself.2. You know it has no idea what to do now that it is up there.3. You wish people would not do things like that and all you want to do is pull over and help the poor thing down.""I see", I said.And in fact, I did see.
Post turtle...love it!
Seems I've heard the current resident at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave described as a post turtle.
