McCAIN / PALIN TICKET IN TROUBLE? | A Damsel in Distress

That’s what we hear. Rumors are flying all over the internet that Palin’s poor performance in her two TV interviews have Republicans scrambling.


Words like “clueless” and “incompetent” are bandied about. Palin is being kept away from reporters and TV.


It’s just a rumor at this stage, but that’s good enough for me – so here it is.


Palin will drop off the ticket citing “family reasons,” disappear back to Alaska to care for her newborn . . . and the VEEP spot will morph into Mike Huckabee.


Or, as we prefer, Puckabee.


I can’t put my finger on it, but something about this stunt seems somehow “off” in terms of sure-fire voter appeal. Maybe I’m wrong, but . . .




You decide.

  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
