I am not one of those panicky people who stays up nights worrying that Sarah Palin will be elected — or even run for — President, but something about her latest video that gives me a little bit of the generalized fear. I think it may have to do with the voiceover? The way her disembodied voice incants, “There is more than enough reason to have faith in America,” is almost menacing. Like, uh oh, what does she know that I don’t? It feels like being smirked at by a particularly perky syndicated talk show host who will turn on you at any moment and tear you to pieces. The guitar riff is kind of fun though.
Uh, you’re welcome, I guess.
