I got a cute email forwarded to me by a friend. It was a make believe conversation between John McCain and a top advisor. The advisor told McCain that everything was now set with Sarah Palin to be the vice presidential candidate. “Pahlin”, said McCain, shocked. “Who is she?”, he responded with exasperation, “I said Pawlenty, not Pahlin. You know, the first term governor from the northern state.” The aid agreed, “yes, the first term governor from the northern state, Palin”. McCain responds that this Sarah Palin is clearly not qualified to be vice president, and asks the aid to apologize to her for the confusion. The aid tells McCain that it’s already been arranged, it’s too late for that, a public announcement has been made…….
It will be interesting to see what happens, to be sure, but if Sarah Palin becomes the 45th president of the United States, the curse will continue: we will live in interesting times.
