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

The 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 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 rancher saw a puzzled look on the doctor’s face, so he explained.

 ‘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.
