The Writers’ Guild would never let her in. One week on staff, and she’d put all the other writers out of work. You really can’t teach that sort of comic genius!

I’m actually looking forward to the Vice Presidential debate. I suspect that the reason we haven’t seen much of Palin is not that the McCain crew are hiding her out of embarrassment, but rather that she is being put through an intensive crash course in world politics. I expect that they’re counting on the dems assuming she’ll come out in clown shoes. Biden should probably be sure to be well prepared for this as they are not going to let her out on the stage unless she is loaded for bear. Of course, it would be funnier if she was as bad at the debate as she has been everywhere else…

As an aside, an interesting thing happened in the lab the other day. We had been discussing the bailout when one of the other lab members walked in. The person I had been talking to immediately turned and asked him how it felt to be the sole republican in the lab.

I’d like to make this clear. I am NOT a democrat (though I have voted democratic on numerous occasions…silly habit of picking the person best-suited for the job)! I have never agreed with the ideals of the democratic party and tend to lean much closer towards the ideals of the republican party. The problem is that the current crop of republicans no longer seem to believe in the ideals of the republican party. It is clearly time to reboot the entire party system, as the names no longer match the faces…
