Some people need electro-shock therapy.
Even in a Twilight Zone year of “anything is possible” politics, the concept of putting Sarah Palin on a national ticket is beyond ludicrous. It suggests an departure from reality that zooms far beyond insanity. Yet emails suggesting her as Romney’s “best choice” for veep arrive at Capitol Hill Blue daily.
It’s bad enough that the washout from Wasila remains in the public eye. The idea of another political season of Sarah Silliness is the last thing this nation needs.
John McCain’s desperate campaign team, looking for a “game change” inflicted Palin on the national psyche in 2008, infecting the body politic with a virus of epidemic proportions.
Palin’s emergence stretched the boundaries of belief that anyone can grow up to be President. Of course, in Palin’s case, she would need to grow up first to be anything but what she is: A pop culture example of how celebrity overrules sanity and shallowness trumps reality in today’s political environment.
Still, some say Romney needs a “game changer” on the ticket.
Why? Why not do something unique this election season?. Why not look for the best qualified candidate for the job rather than some 15-second flash in the pan?
Scratch that outrageous idea. This is politics.
Anything is possible.
