GBCW (Updated with waffling)

In an incredibly ironic twist, my identity has been exposed due to my own incompetence.  Trying to maintain a sockpuppet account, logging in and out of two accounts, can be fraught with peril.  I blew it, thinking I was typing a reply as Caribou Barbie, but posting it as myself.

I can’t continue making fun of Sarah Palin if I’m no smarter than her.  And I only had one more day to go before the election.  I’d have gotten away with it too if it wasn’t for you meddling kids!  No…no…I have no one to blame but myself.

Thank you for indulging me.  I had a blast, and Docudharma is a great audience!  I hope everyone enjoyed it half as much as I did.  Now let’s all hope that Caribou Barbie’s spectacular failure on Docudharma is a harbinger of things to come tomorrow!  

Update:  The whole sorry episode happened here.

Update 2:  OK, I’m starting to waffle on the GBCW thing and here’s why.  It’s lookin’ like nothing can stop Palin from running in 2012.  I would expect she will take a little time off after the election.  And then?  Move to Iowa and camp out right here in my own back yard (I live in Des Moines).  It just occurred to me that I’ll have to put up with her gibberish for THE NEXT FOUR FUCKING YEARS.  I may need Caribou Barbie to retain my sanity.

  1. I promise to stop tormenting Docudharma as Caribou Barbie.  For now.  Probably.

  3. And I think its only proper that you  beat the real one in bitting the dust.

    (can i call you barbs?)   i gotta turn in so i can turn out to the polls at 6:00 am tomorrow.

    you’ve made a good case for John McCain yourself, and you’ve been damn (can i say damn?) informative entertaining and everything, and i surely do, ah, yeah well, i’ll miss ya.  sure will.

  5. It was a brilliant charade while it lasted, but SP’s 15 minutes were just about up anyway–at least for this time around.  Now, for the first time ever, I hope SP runs again in 2012, if only so we can have Caribou Barbie back among us!  : )

    say it ain’t so!

    don’t go……


  6. I have enjoyed your sockpuppetry so much.

    Please come back as someone else in the future, if you feel so inspired.


    Anyway, having outed yourself, I don’t see why you can’t do a few more Caribou Barbie essays–they’re so funny, and knowing your dd identity doesn’t negate that.  The pleasure, for me, was in the reading and the laughing, not so much who wrote it–I mean, yeah, I wondered who, but knowing the answer doesn’t make the essays any less wonderful.  Y’know?

    Also too.

    please please please at least do one more after McPain loses.  please please please

  7. I just left a comment in that thread, and want to make sure you see it, so here’s the link:

  8. I am so sorry to have provoked your outing yourself.  If I had the codes/keys to delete that comment, I would’ve, but alas, I don’t.

    You were brilliant as CB!!  If there’s an Oscar or Emmy or Tube award for “Best Sockpuppet Ever” it is entirely all yours.

  9. Real Amuricans know you’re qualified cause the Pole sez so.
