Dear T-----:

 

Thank you for sending me this bit of information on Governor Palin.  I'm quite impressed. Before I was kind of scared of Palin because she could hardly speak English, but now I think I'm ready to give her control of my country.

 

After reading this I'd say McCain was actually wise to choose Palin, and actually, the more I listen to her, I think maybe HE should be running as VP and she should just be given the keys to our future. It seems Palin herself is starting to think this way too.  I'm hoping Todd will be in there too between snowmobile races and Alaska secession rallies to help her formulate policies. We need that Todd input.

 

She's so subtle and diplomatic in her demeanor, I really think she ought to be handling China and the Middle East and our economic problems too. She's already in command of the Alaska National Guard, why not just give her the whole show!

 

And actually, come to think of it, since any Alaska governor is de facto put in command of their state National Guard, this means that if the Alaskans decided to elect a grizzly bear as governor then the bear would be put in command. But this isn't to doubt the wisdom of the people of Alaska as to who they might elect to office. It's just to stress what you need to convince John McCain you're qualified for the second highest post in our government.

 

A lot of those Alaskans live kind of in the woods you know, and the forest teaches you a lot about life, so, again, if Alaskans elect Palin as governor I think she's probably also ready to be the most powerful political leader on the planet.

 

That's what McCain thinks, after all, he chose her.  So, again, I'm changing my vote. The planet has a lot of forests on it just like Alaska, and Sarah Palin should be in control of managing and deforesting this overly forested planet.  And since she's already been entrusted with our national security, as your Forward makes clear, she should be Commander in Chief of our next wars with Iran or China or Russia or Venezuela or (a secessionist) Alaska or whatever other country God decides we should attack next. 

 

Because in these dangerous times it seems clear that you don't have to know what the Bush doctrine is to be put in a position to use it.  And Palin seems just the type who wouldn't hesitate, or blink, as she says.

 

Gee, since I've decided to change sides, I really think I'm starting to get the hang of this Republican logic. Just read the above--how it flows, how it all hangs together, how it would be certain to convince just about any reasonable red state being. I should be writing stump speeches.

 

Thanks again for waking me up to all this!

 

See you November 4th!
