It may not seem possible at first blush, but this e-mail missive grows yet more ridiculous. That's because, in honor of Palin's tome, Going Rogue, the Junkmailer who Shall Not Be Named came up with a list of "Rogue" movies one could watch while waiting in these hours-long lines (the notion of, say, reading a book, even Palin's book, was apparently deemed ridiculous).
Those "Rogue" movies: Patriot Games, Braveheart, Mission: Impossible, The Hunt for Red October, American Gangster, The Sum of All Fears, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and Van Helsing. How these films are in any way "rogue" or relate to Palin is anyone's guess. We did warn you this was mind-bogglingly inane.
Well, here's our take. When I see Sarah Palin, hear Sarah Palin, or even think about Sarah Palin it makes me feel stupid. Exposure to this woman is like pouring a shot of vodka directly onto your brain. The enduring popularity of a modern-day know-nothing also makes me fear for society. So, I think watching movies that make you feel stupid and fear for the well-being of society are the ideal way to pass those antsy hours in line while waiting to hear Palin's pearls of wisdom. Here are our picks:
Biodome; Tommy Boy; Billy Madison; Magnolia; Gigli; Encino Man; Forrest Gump; Around the World in 80 Days (with Jackie Chan); Titanic; Dogville; Caddyshack II, and, of course, Three Ninjas: High Noon at Mega Mountain (Jim Varney! Loni Anderson! Hulk Hogan!).
