Slightly more useful than a typeface composed of paw prints.

Wasn't that featured on the 2002 Honest Fonts site? ;-)

That should be the typophile "featured face" on Nov 4!

It will probably crash the server though!?

Ah, yes, the "Nailin Pailin" crowd ;-)

@Sii: I'd love to see Typophile covered in that mess on Nov. 4. I'd imagine there's enough extra points in each glyph to crash the site 10 times over, though.

@Dezcom: I was trying to think of something type-related, but "Optically Scalin' Palin" doesn't really make any sense. Anything you can think of, in the world of type, that rhymes with Palin?

How about "She is Pailen in Comparison"

Whoops! That is not type related :-)

Maybe what we need is a Pailindrone (before I get a Pailin Groan :-)

In the Bering Strait we went a sailin,
where we met a young dimwit named Pailin.
We thought she was smokin but buckshot was spokin,
the Moose smoked it without even inhalin.

Why would anyone develop type for people that don't read?

@BlueStreak: Judging by the state of the conservative movement today in America, maybe The National Review should start publishing their articles in Palin Dudes. If Obama is GQ urbane with his use of Gotham, then the conservatives need a rural imperfect typeface.

@Dezcom: Wasilla would be a fantastic name for a typeface, I'm not sure what it would look like though. It would definitely need a Cyrillic version, regardless, with its proximity to Russia.

Speaking of Herself, I strongly disapprove of and would never refer you to [[http://www.pleaseenjoy.com/project.php?cat=4&subcat=&pid=107|this site]], so don't blame me :)

@William Berkson: I think I can tell you which one would result in a child 9 months later, which I'm not in the market for. Sarah Palin may have the child with the most typographically relevant name, though -- Track. In fact, all of her children sound like they could be names for typefaces -- Bristol, Willow, Piper, Track & Trig.
