Oh, not just culture, sports too, per one-time half-term Gov. & bitter clinger Sarah Palin, here slurped all over by one Tony Lee of Breitbart. No longer-Gov. Palin apparently influences sports by making a big deal of athletes so insecure & pathetic they must wear Gawd on their sleeves. This, somehow, will make Americans ... well, it'll make them do something. Asian-Americans polled during the height of Linsanity thought Sarah was swell when she bought a Lin jersey; it must be working, except for actual votes.
Non-sporting types should be aware that as soon as these Jesus freaks stop performing well (Has their gawd forsaken them?) no one gives a shit about them. (See: Tebow, Tim & Lin, Jeremy.) And we mention to Sports Culture Warrior & Breitbartian typist Tony Lee that one doesn't win "a" pole at a NASCAR race. Drivers earn the pole. Getting a pole at Daytona is something else entirely, probably from Deliverance.
*Satire, or a lampoon, or a parody, maybe ironic or even sarcastic. Will not be looking each word up to get an exact & definitive definition.
