Think of the following scenario:

  1. Relations with Russia continue to cool.
  1. South Ossetia and Abkhazia secede from Georgia, under Russian protection.
  1. Russia annexes the breakaway provinces and continues to brutally censure Georgia.
  1. NATO is paralyzed, divided on how to respond.
  1. President Maverick McCain, proudly known as the Rapid Decider, sends in the troops to line up at Russian borders (Kazakstan!  Uzbekistan!  Kyrgyzstan! Pakistan!  Whatever!)  
  1. Tragically, the Rapid Decider, now 73 (or 74 or 75), is struck down by illness.
  1. VP Sarah Palin is sworn as President in just in time to fly to Paris to meet with Prime Minister Putin. (Fortunately she's had her passport since 2007 and not only that, she's already been to Germany and Kuwait with a stopover in Ireland, so she's good to go.)

  1. Prime Minister Putin says to President Palin, "Madame President, surely you understand the plight of the brave freedom fighters in South Ossetia, from your own experience with the Alaska Independence Party?"

I cannot wait until the VP debate.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Unfortunately, no snark tag for this diary: Can you honestly say that any of these steps is unlikely?

    Heard that she was getting some tutoring leading up to the debate. Do you think McSame will put in for an open book debate? Or will they let her bring notecards?

  •  I've been dealing with this mental image (0+ / 0-)

    for three days.

    McCain is bad enough. Short fused, ill tempered and mentally deteriorating. Palin is far worse.

    For some reason, I don't think her 21 months as governor of Alaska and her 6 years of playing the mayor in "Northern Exposure" is going to serve her well in dealing with Vlad the Invader.

    I hope America is paying attention.

    The loudest cries for war come from those who have never seen one.

  •  Hubbie Todd at a White House dinner is... (0+ / 0-)

    hard to imagine. What would he talk about with Dmitri Medvedev or Hu Jintao--and their spouses?

    Perhaps Alaskan independence? Maybe the Russians and Chinese could help out Todd and Sarah on that one.

    Jeesh. How could this get any more embarrassing for the Republican ticket?
