b: a souffle

What: "The soon to be former governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin, is like one of those souffles my mother sometimes made. The recipe warned against premature removal from the oven because the dish would collapse."

Sarah Palin Is Like Annie Oakley

a: Sarah palin ~
b: Annie Oakley

What: "The gun-toting Sarah Palin is like Annie Oakley, a brash ambassador from America's pioneer past. She immediately reminded me of the frontier women of the Western states, which first granted women the right to vote after the Civil War -- long before the federal amendment guaranteeing universal woman suffrage was passed in 1919.

Sarah Palin is like George McGovern

a: Sarah Palin ~
b: George McGovern

What: "When parties lose power, pundits generally expect them to move to the center. But they don't, at least not at first. Instead, recent history suggests that defeated parties become more extreme." This is very good article that looks at ~50 years of presidential elections. The core of the article; when a US political party falls out of power, they elect candidates who are ideologically pure and extreme. Typically and ironically, they loose the election they wanted to win.

Sarah Palin Is Like Madonna

Sarah Palin is a like a Breakfast Burrito

a: Sarah Palin ~
b: Breakfast Burrito

What: "You could take any piece of vile rhetoric, wrap it up in a populist tortilla, and Palin would endorse it. Palin's repudiation of President Obama's health-care initiative (though it would benefit thousands of Alaskans), is the political equivalent of the chicken tikka-masala burrito."

Sarah Palin

a: Sarah palin ~
b: a pinup girl from the 1950s

What: "Described as the crack cocaine of political celebrity, Sarah Palin is like a pinup girl of the 1950s era: You want to ignore her but just can't, as Ms Palin (like Bettie Page before her) serves up the latest embarrassment."

Sarah Palin is like Grace Kelly

a: Sarah Palin ~
b: Grace Kelly

What: " Sarah Palin is like Grace Kelly and Jacqueline Kennedy wrapped up into one spunky package." ..."Michelle Obama may conjure up pleasant images of Jackie-O but that's only in the minds of the unenlightened. If you really want to see the elegance-elegance of a sunless winter in fact-head over to Wasilla, Alaska and shoot your guns at the nearest deer because Sarah Palin will probably be there." See the link for all the great pictures.

"sarah Palin, Is Like "snooki" From The Jersey Sho

a: Sarah palin ~
b: "Snooki" from the Jersey Shore

What: "Sarah Palin, is like "Snooki" from the Jersey Shore, in my opinion. Not the sharpest knife in the drawer, and she knows it, but she's popular and makes tons of money. No one will ever take her seriously as a talent, so she's taking advantage of her 15 minutes before they're up."

Sarah Palin

a: Sarah Palin ~
b: a heavy metal band

What: "Sarah Palin is like a heavy metal band that debuted in 1991. They might be just as talented as a dozen other eighties bands who had way more success than they did. Their only shortcoming was being late to the party. Palin's every bit as talented and articulate as W. and she has better hair. But after 8 years of experience with W, voters found her frightening."

Palin As William Jennings Bryan

a: Sarah palin ~
b: William Jennings Bryan

What: "actually I sometimes think Sarah Palin is like William Jennings Bryan: a celebrity politician, popular speechifier, driven by religion, his quotes "a romantic invocation of the American past, a populist insistence on the wisdom of ordinary folk, and a faith-based insistence on sincerity and character" from wiki. nott that they have anything in common on most specific policies although I imagine Bryan today would be as anti-abortion as he was anti-evolution and anti-alcohol."

Sarah Palin Is Like Joan Of Arc

a: Sarah palin ~
b: Joan of Arc

What: "Sarah Palin is like Joan of Arc in the healthcare battle. Forcing the weak-kneed opposition to stand up and fight. It will be interesting to see how appreciative Americans respond when they realize she has single handedly saving their private insurance plans from falling victim to a government take over." This is a stretch, but worth noting.
