Why I have opened the window!

Amerykah has turned a corner and we should all turn with it. I have thoughts ideas and suggestions but I also have patience and desire for us to be whole and one. I have been speaking a lot lately of the human condition and the generations of Black Americans. i will entertain any and all conversation as long as we can be respectful and grown up. Let the healing begin......

Sarah Palin's alter ego.....

A few weeks ago it came to me that Pat Buchanan was a modern day Archie Bunker; well a few days ago it came to me who Sarah Palin is. For the closest analog to the Alaska governor turned super star I have to go back a few years and across the pond to the show “Keeping up Appearances”.

For those who are unfamiliar with the BBC classic “Keeping up Appearances” was a show centered around Hyacinth Bucket (pronounced according to her Bouquet) who lives a middle class life but dreams to be on top of the social ladder. Every episode is about the great pains that Hyacinth goes through to impress her friends, neighbors, and strangers while deflecting attention away from her two poor sisters, brother in law, and slightly off the beam father.

Hmmm a social climbing woman trying to impress and make people think she is better than she is while her family is constantly being themselves and causing her to do spin control. Yeah Sarah Palin is Hyacinth Bucket….
