So remember the Manic Pixie Dream Girl? Coined by the Onion's A.V. Club, she is that "bubbly, shallow cinematic creature that exists solely in the fevered imaginations of sensitive writer-directors to teach broodingly soulful young men to embrace life and its infinite mysteries and adventures." Well Jesse Taylor at Pandagon had a Eureka! moment when parsing Sarah Palin: "the woman is the GOP's Manic Pixie Dream Governor. Literally, her entire stump speech is just wacky shit she's done that's supposed to get the dispirited base thinking about what could be, a woman who brings a variety of oh-so-charming experiences to help John McCain stop being such a sourpuss." Brilliant! [Pandagon]
