Here are a few:

I always wanted to be an explorer, but - it seemed I was doomed to be nothing more than a very silly person. (http://forum.woodenboat.com/quotes/quotes/m/michaelpal183860.html)

I am not a great cook, I am not a great artist, but I love art, and I love food, so I am the perfect traveller. (http://forum.woodenboat.com/quotes/quotes/m/michaelpal183552.html)

One of the most important days of my life was when I learned to ride a bicycle. (http://forum.woodenboat.com/quotes/quotes/m/michaelpal183555.html)

The trouble with travelling back later on is that you can never repeat the same experience. (http://forum.woodenboat.com/quotes/quotes/m/michaelpal183557.html)


Really gives you something to think about...

It is difficult to know quite where Michael Palin stands in British film comedy. His solo vehicles have often presented him as the common man largely beset by some form of adversity or temptation.



'I always wanted to be an explorer, but - it seemed I was doomed to be nothing more than a very silly person.'

I read a really interesting paper a while ago about why people vote for idiots like her. Basically it focused on group psychologies, how people feel more comfortable being around folks dumber than themselves, makes them feel superior, the bully mentality and all.

I'll try and look it up again but it was a while ago, the gist was that politics can only get worse. That a truly intelligent politician is a fluke rather than the norm. That essentially society is dumbing down rather than smartening up.

Palin was popular specifically because she appealed to idiots and bimbos everywhere, kinda made them feel right at home.

You mean as opposed to the group psychology of the genuinely superior people, holed up on internet forums, talking about other people that are supposedly dumber than they are?

She has nothing on the governor of Maine.
The phenomenon of the dumb cheerleader background noise is really entertaining.

The new Democratic party majority in the legislature for the next 2 years will make Maine politics worth watching for the chuckles. This governor is too dumb to resign and all he has in his political tool kit is anger.

Watch him become a national hero for the Tbaggers.

Deep thoughts from Biden and he is an elected official, not Palin.

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/.a/6a00d8341c630a53ef014e60e7f58c970c-800wi (http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/.a/6a00d8341c630a53ef014e60e7f58c970c-pi) Vice President Joe Biden was given another big job by President Obama on Wednesday and the burden may have driven Obama's go-to guy into a moment of sleep or, at least, contemplation.

Biden, who has more than a nodding acquaintance with deficits, debts and federal budget woes, was caught apparently deep in thought or catching a few winks while Obama outlined his plan for dealing with the deficit. The video (http://blogs.abcnews.com/thenote/2011/04/asleep-on-the-job-what-was-vice-president-joe-biden-doing-during-obamas-debt-speech.html) was posted on The Note, a political blog run by ABC News.

In his speech, the president explained that Biden would begin meeting with lawmakers from both parties next month with a goal of trying to work out a bipartisan deficit reduction plan.

The legislators will be chosen by the congressional leaders and they will seek some common ground between the widely different visions in the proposed GOP plan and the president's latest ideas.

Biden served in this role before on both domestic and foreign issues. He was one of those who recently helped negotiate the current compromise on this year's spending plan.

In this thread: people who don't recognize the difference between a British comic genius and a tired joke.

OP wins for fooling people into kneejerk reactions.

Thread losers: people who think OP was being deceptive and people who still think this is about the tired joke.

I can identify with 2 and 3, but I never claimed to be presidential material either. Funny that on the night of the SOTU a Palin thread pops up. Nothing in the speech to praise so it is time to bash the party from 4 years ago.

Sure, there's Palin Derangement Syndrome, which you have pointed out on numerous occasions. The mere sight of the letters p-a-l-i-n cause the reader to go into attack mode against the former governor of Alaska. Then there's Palin Delusional Syndrome, where the mere sight of the letters p-a-l-i-n cause the reader to believe that the former governor of Alaska was winking only at him(or her) during the VP debate of 2008. Therefore the reader reflexively wants to protect the former governor of Alaska. Even when the subject was Michael Palin, and not Sarah Palin.

Also it was kind of interesting to watch the thread drift.

Er, the Scots are British and nothing will ever change that. It seems your beef is with the English - you must feel it very keenly. Oh and the shaken not stirred thing? James Bond is a half Scottish, half Swiss character. Still, I am sure you kilt went down well - were you a true Scotsman underneath?

Norman:
The appeal of Palin, and others like her, is her simplicity; the idea that complex problems can be reduced into simplistic soundbites that provide a soothing prescription for problems that actually require things like subtlety, analysis, complex thought, and forethought. While people with extraordinary education and intelligence can differ strongly about the appropriate prescriptions for resolving important issues, people without the same intellectual brainpower are attracted to simple (but wrong, ineffective, or off-target) solutions. We have an immigration problem? Build a giant wall to keep out the foreigners. We have a gun violence problem? Encourage everyone to pack a gun. We have a debt problem? Drastically cut government spending all at once....

....all of which are terrible solutions to the difficult problems we face. But for people who desperately WANT a simple solution, it's got terrific appeal.The reds' "Celebration of Ignorance".

Tomkinson: It's a full-scale model, sir.

Tomkinson: Yes, it's good, isn't it, sir? It's got three engines, an enormous...
Mr. Ellis: No no no, that's not the point. That is not a model. It'll be hell if this comes out at speech day exhibition. You're a very stupid boy building icebreakers like this, Tomkinson.
