Sarah Palin really needs a hobby. Wasn't everybody (outside of Alaska) better off when she had a job?
The unemployed former governor is back with another Facebook note concerning health care reform, and it reads like a first-draft response to yet another imagined slight.

Fame, (fame) makes a man take things over
Fame, (fame) lets him loose, hard to swallow
Fame, (fame) puts you there where things are hollow

    By now it's clear that Chuck Norris has been kicked in the head one too many times.
    The fading "action star" has landed on the radical right website Townhall.com, joining his fellow fringe-dwellers to warn of the perceived evils of health care reform.
