Mental Health Break: Sarah Palin Baby Name Generator

September 17, 2008

So, with Sarah Palin serving as the right wing analogue to the Frank Zappa counterculture school of child names (see Moon Unit and Dweazil, inter alia), leave it to some clever fellow — David Harrington at Polit Tsk Tsk Tsk — to come up with a way to generate your own Palin name — what you would be called if, mirabile dictu (and that’s the polite way of putting it), Sarah Palin were your mom.

This is definitely technology we can believe in.

So check it out, have fun, and just remember that you cannot have Still Hardrock Palin.  That’s mine.
