TBogg has a whole list of reasons Sarah Palin had to rush back to Alaska after the convention:
* Winter is coming and Sarah needs to start stocking up on food by canning moose jelly, moose niblets, moose pate, and moose mac & cheese.
* School is starting and middle daughter Willow wants to get back before all the good hockey players are taken and she's all alone during the rutting season.
* Cram sessions with Joe Lieberman who will explain to her that Jews are not treacherous Jesus killers who steal Christian babies and drink their blood. Just in case, Trig is spending the week at Aunt Heather's.
* Bear hunting season is coming and they need the fur for Bristol's wedding dress.
* Need to track down and kill at least thirty nine people in Wasilla who "won't keep their fucking mouths shut."
