Was I the only person who noticed that Palin, as in brave new leader Sarah Palin, sounds like a present participle (running, talking, killing, etc.)? Well gang, I have an idea! Let’s make “Palin’ the McCain” a euphemism!
Wouldn’t that be fun?! Not following me? How about I give a series of examples, each with usage and appropriate context:
“Alright, Danny Bonaduce, we’re finally taking the time to sit you down for an intervention. Your substance abuse is clearly out of control!”
“Hey, look at his eyes!”
“Oh my God! He was Palin’ the McCain in the car on the way over here!”
“Honey, what’s wrong?”
“I walked in on Billy in the bathroom, and he was. . . he was. . .”
“What is it, honey?”
“HE WAS PALIN’ THE MCCAIN!”
“How was your date last night, bro?”
“It was awesome, dude! This girl was nuts! She was all over me! But she drew the line at Palin’ the McCain.”
It’s as easy as that! We can totally make “Palin’ the McCain” an awesome euphemism!
