Oh, doncha know, it is on!
–Alaskan Governer Sarah Palin Panders to America’s Yoga-bama Supporters–
We never expected it, though we had hoped for it, and some had already pretty much decided to pretend anyway… but a presidential yogi? Ah, too good to be true! That’s why we have no doubt in our minds that Sarah Palin, posing in Vrksasana (tree pose) for Runner’s World article “I’m a runner”, will have no chance at Dame Commander in Chief come 2012.
Besides, this shot (and her shot at Obama) was about outrunning the prez in a long distance race. Also, it’s ingrained in every yogi’s brain not to place the foot on the knee…pfft. Yes, we’re afraid we still have no affirmative confirmation on a presidential yogi, and that this is just another candid abuse of asana for a cute photo op. You betcha, le sigh.
