I was driving to work yesterday morning and came across this yard sign, nearly causing me to hit a parked car. I seriously did a double-take. Had I missed something? Overnight had Senator McCain decided to step aside “for health reasons” and install Sarahcuda at the top of the ticket as the ultimate “stunt”? Who is actually running for president, Senator McCain or Governor Palin? I am getting confused.
There is definitely a pattern here. During one of the governor’s recent stump speeches she made an obvious Freudian slip and referred to the “Palin McCain” administration. Oops. Hold on there a minute, little lady. Not so fast. Last time I checked you were still NUMERO DOS on the ticket. But wait! There’s still time for things to flip here. Perhaps it is possible that by some miracle Saracuda might ascend to the top (is that sort of like cream rising? Hey, I could be a GOP speech writer!). Maybe during some late-night behind-the-scenes meeting with the RNC top brass the decision was made to quietly and sneakily switch the ticket. Who would ever notice? Certainly not the General Public. You know, the ones who supposedly wouldn’t understand the Bailout Package so why try and explain it to them?
Hopefully come November 4th it won’t matter who is at the top of the Republican ticket because the majority of the country will have risen up, exercised common sense and good judgment and finally stopped the madness.
As much as I am enjoying Saturday Night Live this season, I will gladly settle for a change of subject if it is as the result of no more Saracuda to kick around.
