Here are two paintings by Marc Burckhardt - previously featured here - that would make perfect sense to the rotting, stinking and twitching gelatinous mass that Governor Palin refers to as her "brain". A sticky place where dinosaurs and humans happily coexist. Because, you know, she once saw tiny human footprints inside fossilized dino tracks which - being a leading palaeontologist, I assume - told her that they happily strolled to school together.

The truth, however, generally looks a bit bleaker and in your case, Governor Palin, here's what that dino would have done to you without thinking twice (... and even if it was of the herbivore variety):

    Hear hear! I'd like to believe that the American people couldn't possibly be stupid enough to vote for the demonic duo...then again, look at who's been running the country (into the ground) for TWO terms. *mutters incomprehensible curses and shakes fist*

    Oh well.. I still have high hopes that America will vote Obama and that his secret super powers will make this world a better place.

    *Sings "heal the woooooorld - make it a betterrrrrr plaaaaaace. For youuuuuuuuu and for meeeeeeeee and the entire human raaaaaaaace"* o_O

    If however, McCain/Palin get voted in, I'll have no choice than to go and do shift work in a communist factory in North Korea cloning kamikaze killer dinos to destroy the US of A. :D
