Maceo thinking, “That’s One Ugly Bitch”

Maceo in Willie’s Diner sipping coffee staring down at the morning paper thinking, Man, that’s one ugly bitch. Looking  across the table at Murphy, all 280 pounds of him, he says, “Don’t she get uglier by the day?” and points his chipped coffee mug at the picture of Sarah Palin under a headline announcing the Alaskan governor’s resigning from office ,  “She’s resigning because she thinks she can,” he looks down at the paper, studies a moment, reads out loud,  “fight for our children’s future from outside the governor’s office.”

Murphy chuckles, swallows a belch, says, “She could help kids more maybe if she did it from outside the country,” pauses, then adds, “She did get fuckin’ ugly quick.”

Maceo, smiling now, says, “Like, you know, you meet someone and maybe they look, you know, alright and shit, and then they’re real nice and soon they look nicer and nicer. Well Palin’s the reverse of that shit. McCain picks her and I think, Now that’s one hot looking lady.”

Murphy nods once. “Yeah, that lasted.”

“Five minutes tops.  She starts talkin’ about she knows foreign policy and shit ‘cause she can see Russia from Alaska.”

Good glasses, man.”

She got ugly fast.”

Murphy nods agreement. “That’s one ugly bitch.”
