The Saga of the Post Turtle

The debate ‘tween Palin and Biden is on tonight!
by Charlie Leck

I don’t know who is responsible for this one, but it’s been making the rounds this week. It’s down-home all right, with a simple spin; but, you know, it says it all.

While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75-year old Texas rancher whose hand was caught in a gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually, the topic got around to Sarah Palin and her bid to be a heartbeat away from the presidency.

The old rancher said, 'Well, yuh’ know, Palin is a post turtle.'

Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what a post turtle was.

The old rancher said, 'When yur’a driving down a country road and yuh come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top – that’s a post turtle!

The old rancher saw a puzzled look on the doctor's face, so he continued to explain.

'Yuh know, she didn't get up there by herself. She doesn't belong up there. She doesn't know what to do while she’s up there. Yuh just wonder what kind of dumb ass put her up there to begin with.'
Watch the debate tonight and tell me how it goes. I don’t think I have the stomach for it.
