Yes, you did read that correctly..and yes you do know what that means. Sarah Palin's son - not the one in Iraq, the special-needs child- is named Trig Paxon Van Palin. And Yes she did that because she is a big fan of Van Halen and thought it would be funny. And Yes it is funny.
But you know what else is funny?
Her son has down's syndrome and do you know what that means?
That means that throughout his life he will never get the joke.
He will never really be able to comprehend the fact that his mom, the first female Republican Vice-Presidential Candidate, named a pun that references an 80s hair metal band.
but for the record Sarah Palin does make me hot for teacher. "I brought my peennncciill"
