Nothing says “Merry Christmas” like a 2009 Sarah Palin wall calendar. Absolutely nothing. Not a Jennifer Aniston calendar or a Jessica Alba calendar. Nothing. Sarah Palin Wall Calendar = Merry Christmas. See?
And if you’re a Sarah Palin- phile (or you know someone who is), this has got to be a ‘must buy’ on your Christmas list. Chock full of Sarah Palin and family photos (over 50 in all!! and none of those objectionable nude photos or swimsuit pictures to deal with), it lends to the average buyer that feeling of connection to the religious fundamentalist Alaska family every individual in the true parts of America will cherish and enjoy throughout the coming year.
No other Christmas gift this season could be more appropriate for the true believer’s trailer wall.
After such a long and glorious presidential campaign, one filled with almost as many firsts as the Guinness Book of World Records (and a few that made the book), Americans find themselves nearing the end of 2008, going into Christmas season, and getting ready to tackle upcoming 2009. And nothing says Christmas like a 13-month calendar. Calendars are the ultimate in optimism – they’re a map of the future with room for personal planning. And if things did not turn out like one hoped they would on Election Day, the 2009 Sarah Palin wall calendar will help one forget for just a few seconds and replace the feelings of impending doom that surely will befall the United States and the world for the next four years with feelings of hope and anticipation for the upcoming presidential race in 2010 (for Palin’s assumption in 2012).
The best part? The “2009 Sarah Palin Wall Calendar: A Personal Look At Alaska’s Governor” retails for less than $16. You betcha!
The more than 50 photos (sorry guys, no nude photos or swimsuit photos of Sarah Palin in this offering, either) were taken by Judy Patrick, Palin’s long-time friend and self-described “Palin surrogate” deputy mayor of Wasilla. The photos show the governor and her family during work and various functions. The cover of the 13-month calendar is a shot of a smiling Sarah Palin with a broken-open shotgun draped over her shoulder and a huge American flag waving behind her.
But not only does the 2009 Sarah Palin Wall Calendar contain glossy memories of the Governor and her family, there are captions for the more adventurously literate of her supporters. For example, the cover photo’s caption reads: “This flag photo was taken just days after the terrorist attacks on 9/11 in 2001. Sarah, like the rest of the nation, was trying to cope with the attacks on American soil and demonstrating her patriotism.”
Yes. Nothing says patriotism like a smiling, bespectacled Sarah Palin and a shotgun.
Patrick said in an interview (Wall Street Journal) that the project was self-funded and she hoped to make enough off of the calendar to help pay for a $250,000 condo her family was purchasing. She also said she used remnants of her extensive photo collection of Sarah Palin, the best were given to the McCain-Palin campaign.
So, if you are a Palin- phile and need to catch up on your Palintology, there is absolutely no Christmas gift available that will add more to the beauty of your aluminum home or provide a better compliment to your velvet Elvis (sorry, Mr. Earnhardt) than a 2009 Sarah Palin Wall Calendar.
And it’s printed and produced in the U.S.A! (Proof that it is a quality product.)
You can find the calendar at SarahCalendar.com. It can also be found at various booksellers (most notably Barnes and Noble), located in a prominent position between the volumes of GED For Dummies and the “My juvenile delinquent knocked up your honor roll student” bumper stickers.
