A new father has secretly named his baby girl Sarah McCain Palin after the Republican ticket for president and vice president.
Mark Ciptak of Elizabethton put that name on the documents for the girl’s birth certificate, ignoring the name Ava Grace, which he and his wife had picked earlier.
“I don’t think she believes me yet,” he told the Kingsport Times-News for a story to be published Tuesday. “It’s going to take some more convincing.”
Dedication like that should surely be enough to offer him a lucrative gig posting at the Corner. After all, when you are down to posting rumors and innuendo, quality control and intellectual heft are not really first order hiring principles. I would suggest that this guy has the dedication to the cause that is needed to continue the fight against the liberal fascists.
In all seriousness, Tim and I im’d back and forth, and we both agree this is one of the saddest things we have ever heard. Not even telling your wife?
