She Who Shall Not Be Named In This House

My spouse and friends were stunned last week when McCain announced his choice of running mate and I immediately began to froth at the mouth. I am not known as a particularly political animal, and there are very few politicians who can set me off. But of those who can, She-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named-In-This-House is right up there at the top of the list with former secretary of the interior James Watt.

Though in the weeks preceding the announcement of her selection as VP her staffers assiduously rewrote her wikipedia entry giving her a pre-election shiny new face, she is still the wolf-killing, snowmobile-riding, oil-mad, anti-environmentalist that I have come to know and despise.

And for those who need issues about people not animals and wilderness to guide them, there's this lovely piece by Hilary Rosen (shown at right).

Considering that my Hebrew and Yiddish names mean wolf, I'll have to be careful when I'm in Alaska...

And "Siyeh" means "rabid wolf" in Blackfeet.
