Believe me when I tell you that the last thing I have any desire to do is draw politics into our enjoyable look at tools. That’s why it surprised the crap out of me when I noticed that the Specialty Tools and Fasteners Distributors Association — a not-for-profit educational trade group — selected Sarah Palin as their keynote speaker for the yearly convention this November.
Really? Wouldn’t it make more sense to invite someone who, I don’t know, knows something about fasteners, specialty tools, or fastener and specialty tool products? Forget politics here. I’d be just as stunned if they invited Nancy Pelosi. Or Rush Limbaugh. Or Harry Reid.
Hey, maybe this makes sense to you. If it does, by all means let me know in comments where I missed the boat.
