From My Friend in Deep South Texas - the Post Turtle
I'm really posting up a storm lately.
Here's what my friend D.R. in McAllen sent me:

While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75-year old Texas rancher whose hand was caught in a gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to Sarah Palin and her bid to be a heartbeat away from being President.

The old rancher said, "Well, ya know, Palin is a post turtle."

Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what a post turtle was.

The old rancher said, "When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a post turtle."

The old rancher saw a puzzled look on the doctor's face, so he continued to explain. "You know she didn't get up there by herself, she doesn't belong up there, she doesn't know what to do while she is up there, and you just wonder what kind of dumb ass put her up there to begin with."

Wow, that's a horrible thing to do to a turtle. I guess that means it's a horrible thing to do to Palin, too.

I think I accidentally deleted your comment about Bristol Palin, with which I agree. Sorry.
