We have to get to the bottom of this.
There is no higher national purpose than to determine whether Sarah Palin rolled her eyes when a propester[*] carrying an anti-Palin banner asserted that she was a teacher.
Via Andrew Sullivan and the other members of the Sarah Palin Body Part Brigade, a slow motion recreation of the scene of the crime (neither Mr. Zapruter nor Keith Hernandez could be reached for comment):
And, I want Alaska family services involved because this all took place in front of Palin’s daughter (via Sullivan):
Well, you make the call. Did she roll her eyes at the mention of the word “teacher” in front of her own daughter?
(Please ignore the photo in Sullivan’s post of the type of boots Palin was wearing. Palin’s feet are outside the scope of the inquisition, as is her uterus. We are bound to follow the ancient legal doctrine of “one body part per commission.”)
[* This originally was a typo I didn’t catch, but now that I noticed it, I kind of like the term; it certainly conveys a meaning not already accounted for in the word “protester.” If we can have a living constitution, why not a living language? I think this sort of thing could catch on.]
