The time to advise former Alaska governor and future cartoon villain archetype Sarah Palin to proofread her social media posts has long passed.
Palin posted an alarming New Year’s greeting to her Facebook fans: her 6-year-old son, Trig, standing on the family dog.
This is, in Palin’s mind, a sign of perseverance. Trig wanted to help wash dishes in the kitchen sink, Palin wrote, and the dog sat in front of it. So the dog, as an object and not a living being, became a stepping stone instead of a hindrance.
Having largely retired from political life after her failed vice presidential run in 2008 and subsequent time as a Tea Party icon on a speaking tour, Palin now is the star of the subscription-only, online-only Sarah Palin Channel. Here’s hoping “humans standing on animals, possibly injuring them” isn’t a big theme for its 2015 season.
