And the last tenuous link to reality finally snaps.

Over at Kate McMillan's Delisle White Power Laundromat and Tattoo Parlor, the final slender thread connecting Kate to the real world gives way:

Quite so, Kate ... the relentless media coverage of The Quitbull from Wasilla can only reflect her current relevance. You know, like the balloon boy. What other explanation could there be?

Sadly, Kate never bothered to follow some of those links, where we find even Diane Francis at the Post giving Palin her due, but probably not in a way that Kate had in mind.

Diane Francis: Real journalist. Kate McMillan: Not so much.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Oh, Lord, this is adorable. If one follows that link from Kate's House of Screechy Harridanism, one ends up here:

Thousands cheer Palin in Mich. for book tour

Nov 18, 7:03 PM (ET)


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - College students ditched class, employees skipped work and some huddled in the cold overnight just to make sure they get an orange wristband Wednesday that would let them meet Sarah Palin.

Thousands gathered outside a Barnes & Noble and chanted "Palin! Palin! Palin!" for the kickoff of the former Republican vice presidential candidate's "Going Rogue" book tour, which has taken on the feel of a political pep rally.

Yessir, the Quitbull from Wasilla is some kind of popular, and Fox News wants to make damned sure you know that:

Whoo hoo! Let the bells ring out, let the banners fly, Sarah's here, Sarah's here, Sarah's ... um, hang on, back that up just a bit, what's on those t-shirts?

I'm sorry ... do those t-shirts read "McCain"? Oh, so that's actually video footage from last year's presidential campaign. Attagirl, Kate ... way to be suckered yet again. This is starting to be a habit for her, isn't it?

Jon Stewart should have a field day with this.

(Wag of the tail to TP.)

I was in Borders yesterday (in America). The book is already on sale -- 40% off for Christmas giving!

Well, yeah. It's Fox News, so that must have been inadvertant.

Once again.

Daisy Mae from Delisle holds forth thusly:

When I consider someone to be inconsequential, I don't write any at all.

Yeah, sure you do.

Umm...didn't she say in her post that she doesn't consider herself a journalist? I mean, it's not like it's some great revelation to point that out.
