Sarah Palin Answers the Dinosaur Question

Posted: Updated:

We have all heard that Governor Sarah Palin believes that the earth is only 6,000 years old and that man and dinosaurs co-existed. We all had a good chuckle at the Matt Damon interview. But what we haven't heard is Sarah Palin's response.

That is, until today. Palin has finally given a direct answer to the "dinosaur" question. Take a look.

God bless her, Sarah Palin is putting the "fun" back in fundamentalist Christian. Are we all so jaded that we can't remember when we were kids thinking how cool it would be to live with dinosaurs? Well, she hasn't lost that. She lives it every day of her life.

Let's be honest. Wouldn't it be more fun to ride a pterodactyl than an airplane? Wouldn't you rather shower with the snout of a woolly mammoth than with plumbing? How much cooler would it be to cut bread with a swordfish instead of a boring old knife?

Would the bridge in Minnesota had collapsed if it was a dinosaur? Isn't it more environmentally sound to cut your grass with a crab than a gas guzzling lawnmower? And who can argue that music sounds so much more full when played on the classic bird beak record player instead of digital MP3s?

The truth behind this is that we're all jealous of Sarah Palin. She reminds us of the naive innocence of childhood. Before we were burdened with horrible things like science and facts.

And who could deny how bad-ass Jesus would look shepherding in the Apocalypse while riding on the back of a Tyrannosaurus Rex?
