I do believe that the best way to point out McCain's insult to the regular American voter is to use humor against his "soulmate", Mrs. Palin. Good jokes follow:
"John McCain's VP pick is the governor of Alaska, a unknown hockey mom named Sarah Palin that no one ever heard of. The only other job she had in politics was the mayor of a small town known as Wasilla, Alaska, and now she has the opportunity to be on a ticket opposite of Barack Obama, the first black man she's ever seen." –Bill Maher
"This isn't a presidential ticket, this is a sitcom. The maverick and the MILF." –Bill Maher
"She's not bad looking. She looks like one of those women in the Van Halen videos who takes off her glasses, shakes out her hair, and then all of a sudden, she's in high heels and a bikini. All of a sudden, I am FOR drilling in Alaska." --Jimmy Kimmel
"Alaska Gov. Sarah Pallin is John McCain's choice. Here's what we know about her: her name is Sarah Palin." --Jay Leno
(More below the fold...)
These and other new jokes are coming in bunches:
"Actually, it was kind of a smart choice. McCain went with a woman because he didn't want to have to be in a position to have to get CPR from Mitt Romney." –Jay Leno
"Palin and McCain are a good pair. She's pro-life and he's clinging to life." –Jay Leno
"Today President Bush called Gov. Palin and congratulated her. Bush told Palin the job of vice president is very important because as vice president, you get to tell the president what to do." –Jay Leno
"The McCain people believe that Americans will disregard her inexperience because they will fall in love with her story. She was a runner up in the 1984 Miss Alaska Pageant., which may sound trite, but you try walking in high-heeled snow shoes." –Bill Maher
"Five kids? Does anyone in that party understand the concept of pulling out?" –Bill Maher
"John McCain turned 72 on Friday and apparently decided he deserved a really hot birthday present so he introduced his "Vice President" choice.
"When John McCain takes office, he intends to be less formal than his predecessors. Instead of "Mr. President", he'll have his Vice President call him "Daddy".
There you go. Nothing works better than humor in this case.
