That’s “Palin” with a long “a”

Since I read news more often than I watch or hear it, I have had a hard time knowing whether Sarah Palin’s last name is pronounced with a long “a” or a short “a”.

And then I read that she gave her son the middle name “Van” because “Van Palin” rhymes with “Van Halen”, so now that’s all cleared up for me.

She was governor of a state that’s right near Russia, and she named her kid after a band who had a hit in the 80′s with a song called “Panama”. And you thought she didn’t have foreign policy experience…
