The real Mama Grizzlies vs. Sarah Palin

| »

Here’s the most funny, unwittingly clever and quite apropos way of addressing Sarah Palin’s silly “Mama Grizzly” meme I can think of: Real mamas dressed in silly Grizzly costumes and telling Palin that she does not speak for them at all.

I’m sure some will see this as a silly and immature comeback – but that’s the whole point. It’s a deliberately sophomoric response, carrying a very important message, to counter an unintentionally sophomoric meme intended to get women to oppose Democrats in office on the faulty premise that liberals are out to put their children in danger.

You just can’t get better symbolism than that, intentional or not.
