The finding that Sarah Palin is now regarded least favorably among the four presidential and vice-presidential candidates leads Mark to say that she’ll be a millstone around McCain’s neck by election time.
Though I wouldn’t object greatly to McCain’s being cast into the Bering Sea, I beg to differ. Palin won’t be a millstone; she’ll be an albatross.
Having to bear a dead albatross around his neck was, as we all know, the Ancient Mariner’s cosmic payback for shooting that animal cruelly and without good reason.
Or, as my Greek teacher used to say, “Euripi-des, Eumeni-des.”
Update: Palin’s even more unpopular than we thought. Anyone for calling Palin’s albatross level the “wingspan meter?”
