Sarah Palin’s Next Career

Sarah Palin, Republican John McCain’s running mate, tried to burnish her foreign policy credentials by meeting here with Israel’s ambassador to the United States. “We look forward to working with your Jewish agency,” she told Ambassador Sallai Meridor.

Governor Palin seems to be under the impression that any Jewish state would be a talent agency. That is true of William Morris (not his original name), Creative Artists Agency and ICM, but not Israel. (Israel, however, could give Mrs. Palin a good deal for its Philharmonic to play at Bristol’s wedding.)

But the Governor certainly would want a Jewish agent to negotiate for her book deal and Fox talk show. A Gentile agent–if one actually exists–could be raptured in the middle of the negotiations. That is not only inconvenient but unprofessional. No, Gov. Palin would want an agent who expects to be damned–and does business accordingly.

    My favorite Halloween costume for the kids trick-or-treating at the local mall was a 2-year-old dressed as Sarah Palin-wig and all! Wonder if she thought she was a princess?

    Aaaarrrrrgggghhhhhh! She’s Forrest Gump with better legs and worse personality!

    PLEASE God, Allah, Buddha, YHWH, Flying Spaghetti Monster, Possum Goddess, Thor, Zeus, Jupiter, Huitzilopochtli don’t let this woman get anywhere NEAR the White House!

    More ingredients for the word salad! I’m still on the fence about my office party Halloween costume. Some friends think I’d make a great Sarah Palin, as I look a teeny bit like her, and I do have a hockey stick in the garage. Do you think I could win the “scariest costume” competition?

    And when you and your kids look at the digital photos of the halloween costume party ten years from now, they will think you went as Tina Fey.

    Maybe the writers of St Elsewhere are in charge and we will wake up from this very overrated dream.

    I dread the possibility of “Nightmare on Pennsylvania Avenue” – wait! we already have that one. Sadly, Hollywood loves sequels. Pray the voters prefer originals.
