With such sure-as-heckfire phrasing as, “he looked back at me with a twinkle of determination which I hadn’t seen since I told him my goal of having another baby in my fifties and naming it Tron,” Wisconsin’s own Ann Sensenbrenner has won Slate.com’s “Write Like Sarah Palin” contest.
The stay-at-home mother of two, and wife of Gov. Jim Doyle spokesman Lee Sensenbrenner, said she hasn’t read the former Alaska governor’s memoir, “Going Rogue,” but felt a vibe from Palin that she channeled into a 112-word sentence filled with folksy prose such as “Todd’s eyes, which were as blue as the stripes on Old Glory” and “this long, Iron Dog race of a marriage.”
Sensenbrenner, a supporter of President Barack Obama, said it was her first time entering an online writing contest. “I spend an ungodly amount of time on the Internet, so something like this was bound to happen eventually,” she said.
