Sarah Palin–Sarah Who?

Sarah Palin, Vice Presidential CandidateSo by now you’ve probably heard about Sarah Palin, our beloved rookie governor, being chosen as John McCain’s vice presidential candidate.

The news has already made it’s way around Twitter and there are already things being said about her capability as a mother (she had her fifth child in March, one born with Down’s Syndrome) her political history (she was Mayor of the city of Wasilla) and some of the things she’s been facing as governor (people are questioning her firing of Walt Monegan because he wouldn’t fire her brother-in-law while he was in the midst of a divorce with her sister).

In fact it’s already been the talk of the house for a full 57 minutes. Andrew took Grace (age 14) to school and this is how the conversation went:

“Dad, turn off the radio–I don’t want to hear the news.”

“No, John McCain just picked his Vice Presidential running mate–guess who he chose?

“Uh . . . I don’t know . . . Obama?”

“NO!!! Sarah Palin!”

“Sarah Who?”

“Sarah Palin! The governor!”

“She’s already been elected?”

“Uh–Yes? For about a year.”

“But I thought they hadn’t elected a president or vice president yet.”

“The election is in November–she hasn’t been elected to anything but governor.”

“Oh.” [pause] “So you know who I think would be so good playing Edward in the Twilight movie? David Archuleta!”

I swear, if there were ever an argument to be made for IQ testing at the polls, this would be it.
