[Michael Palin for President!!!

I can only support the idea. Sarah Palin scares me, but I love how people come up with brilliant things concerning her.
Check out this.

Cheers,

Bush Gator Palin

From the moment she was chosen as McCain's running mate, we've said we'd rather have Michael because he's more qualified. She's a rather scary person who's being groomed for "greater things", such as polar bear wrestling and swimming the Bering Strait to meet with Russian dignitaries.

This is soooo wrong but it's funny...

Cheers!

She's terrifying--like Dr. Laura Schlessinger, only with a lot more power. People who are that hard-line end up breaking their own rules left, right and centre.

My vote's or Michael Palin! Bring in the Spanish Inquisition!

I find it interesting that members from foreign countries are so concerned with Sarah Palin. First of all, she is running for vice president, not president. The office has very little assigned power, only what the president allows the vp to do. Is she qualified to be vp? She has a pretty thin resume to be sure, but it is thicker than Obama's. A senator for less than 2 years with no executive experience at all. Joe Biden is a seasoned veteran, but he is in the vp slot. Go figure. More importantly, it seems doubtful that McCain & Palin will win the election. If the polls are right, Obama will win the election and a weaker economy only helps him.

Perhaps I am not looking in the right places, but I don't see much concern on this forum about Mahmoud Ahmadinejad running Iran. Here is a guy who has stated in print that Isreal should be wiped off the map. Since they are currently trying to enrich enough uranium to make a nuclear weapon, it might be of some concern to TP members that prefer Isreal to remain a country. I also don't see much discussion about Dmitry Medvedev steering Russia back into a cold war stance. Rolling the tanks into Georgia last month did not win many friends in the rest of Europe. I thought that move might provoke a bit more discussion than if Sarah Palin becomes vp. My 2 cents. And that is about all this rant is worth!

Tway - I could not agree more! Glad to see I'm not the only one who can see right through Dr. Laura and Ms. Palin!!! Did you see that Rollingstone set of articles - love that cartoon: http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/story/23318320/mad_dog_palin

Hey Mike, you're quite right that we should care more about governments in Russia and Iran (although Iran actually has been debated quite a lot on here). Incidentally, I don't really consider Medvedev to be "steering" much of anything.. Putin is pretty much still the man in charge from my understanding.

The US presidency does however have a disproportionately large effect on the rest of us who don't vote in the US elections. You just have to look at the current financial crisis to see why! Maybe people are interested in Sarah Palin, because McCain is just kind of, um.. uninteresting
