What has actor Michael McKean invoking the Unintentional Satire Department? The link leads to a — gasp! — gold Sarah Palin medallion from Alaska Mint.
What’s not satirical: a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the medallion will go to the Wounded Warrior Project, a service organization for wounded veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan.
Not only that: the description of the medallion is decidedly nonpartisan: “This 1 oz. gold medallion honors Alaska’s Sarah Palin. As Alaska’s first woman Governor, she had a reputation of being against ‘business as usual’. She was thrust into the national spotlight when she was chosen to be John McCain’s vice presidential running mate.”
And that’s it. It’s nothing to make Palin look foolish, and if it raises money for the Wounded Warrior Project, we’re all for unintentional satire.
