America's Favorite Cougar?

Tina vs. Sarah

As per usual, I'm here to ask the hard questions. With Tina Fey's impersonation of Sarah Palin sinking in with the American public and the McCain/Palin tickets numbers dropping precipitiously, only one question is on the mind of this blogger: is this the single biggest cougar overlap in the history of America? Are we seeing modern day cougar history with this momentous occasion?

It's a fair question, and one that needs to be prefaced with a story. My good friends Colver and Lorna purchased a Christmas present for me after a couple of run-ins with cougars (also known as attractive older women who happen to be interested in younger men - not to be confused with their opposite number, the puma, which is an unattractive older woman who is interested in younger men). That present?

My Christmas present

The present was a t-shirt that was akin to the design above, except much darker. No less, it identified myself as a cougar hunter, which is hilarious and untrue, but I wore it with pride no less. I swear, they hunt me.

My point is, I think this shirt qualifies me as an aficionado on all things cougar related. Thus the question - is this the single greatest cougar overlap in the history of America? I say yes. I'd say Sarah Palin and Tina Fey, in some order, may be our top two cougar candidates in this great country, and Fey portraying Palin simply overloads the cougar scale to some sort of "queen of the jungle" levels. Even with the economic crisis and the uncertainty in the upcoming presidential election, I can say unequivocally one thing.

It's never been a better time to be a young man in America. We're in the midst of some sort of cougar renaissance. Bask it in America.

Note: I'd take Fey over Palin any day. Nerds are always better than hockey moms in my book.
