Unlike most of us, Roger Ebert doesn’t tweet just to read his own poorly-abbreviated words. So last Friday, when he suggested on Twitter that Coffee Party founder Annabel Park and Sarah Palin should chat, emphasizing that he was “very serious,” people indeed took the idea very seriously–Park herself has sparked to the challenge, and the Facebook group Annabel Park v. Sarah Palin Debate already sports 1,300+ members.
We’re not convinced Palin would ever agree to have an honest, fair, even-keeled dialog with Park (or anybody that doesn’t instantly respond to her favorite call words: USA! RULES! TEA! PARTY! OBAMA! IS A MUSLIM KENYAN SOCIALIST! NEWSPAPERS! ALL OF ‘EM! GOTCHA! GOTCHA!). But if this fantasy conversation ever did happen, we imagine it would be quite illuminating. Perhaps something like…
PARK: It’s a pleasure to sit down with you, Mrs. Palin. Thanks for speaking with me.
PALIN: Ohh, you think I’m gonna fall for that one, dontchoo? You sneaky little buggers!
PARK: I’m not sure I know what you mean.
PALIN: I’m not falling into any of your socialist liberal commie traps, MIZ Park!
PARK: Please—just call me Annabel.
PALIN: Okay, Annabel. Can I call ya Ann?
PARK: Well, I guess so, I mean–but that’s not actually my name.
