Too Much Work

God forbid Sarah Palin should embark on anything resembling "work," and that goes for the American tradition of turkey dinner with all the trimmings on Thanksgiving. It's Quiznos sandwiches for the Palin family (didn't know they were open on T-Day!) because, as she told this news crew, preparing Thanksgiving dinner is "too much work":

She's right, it is too much work. Next year I suggest we all take the Christian NewsWire up on their War On Thanksgiving fantasy and go to Quizno's instead.

And as for that 5k race she started, well, that was apparently "too much work," too.

Speaking of work, Palin's agent has been very busy lining up the speaking engagements, including not one but two in Nashville. How did we get so lucky? I'm getting lots of e-mails from folks asking if I've heard about Palin's February 2010 National Tea Party Convention appearance at Nashville's Opryland Hotel. Yes, we're all just tickled to death about it.

Here's a little "Ms. Cheap"-style tip for you tea baggers balking at the nearly $560 ticket price: Palin is also booked for the National Religious Broadcaster's dinner on Feb. 28, 2010, also at Nashville's Opryland. Tickets to that event are a comparatively affordable $150, and even better she's appearing with Pat Boone, who I imagine is much more entertaining than Michelle Bachmann.

Unless, of course, she cancels. Which, given her recent history of not finishing things, is always a possibility. You know, someone should tell Palin that things would be a lot less work if only she could ditch her opposition to human cloning and find a way to be in two places at once.

Ooops. Looks like she's way ahead of me:
