I hereby invite Senator John McCain to consider replacing Governor Sarah Palin with me as his running mate.
Well, there are many reasons why he need not. For one, I am not a former Miss Alaska runner-up. I don’t know what a moose is. Hockey-moms won’t vote for me. When last measured, I had a three-digit IQ (and the first digit isn’t a zero!).
But here is one strong reason why. I have had a photo of me taken outside the gates of the White House. That means, I have a thorough understanding of foreign policy, defense, the economy and handling crisis situations. At least, that is what Palin-logic leads me to infer:
Couric: You’ve cited Alaska’s proximity to Russia as part of your foreign policy experience. What did you mean by that?
Sarah Palin: That Alaska has a very narrow maritime border between a foreign country, Russia, and, on our other side, the land-boundary that we have with Canada. It’s funny that a comment like that was kinda made to … I don’t know, you know … reporters.
Palin: Yeah, mocked, I guess that’s the word, yeah.
Couric: Well, explain to me why that enhances your foreign-policy credentials.
Palin: Well, it certainly does, because our, our next-door neighbors are foreign countries, there in the state that I am the executive of. And there…
Couric: Have you ever been involved in any negotiations, for example, with the Russians?
Palin: We have trade missions back and forth, we do. It’s very important when you consider even national security issues with Russia. As Putin rears his head and comes into the air space of the United States of America, where do they go? It’s Alaska. It’s just right over the border. It is from Alaska that we send those out to make sure that an eye is being kept on this very powerful nation, Russia, because they are right there, they are right next to our state.

Oh, and I have been to a couple of other countries as well. I’m so confident of getting onto the ticket! Moreover, I’m only 25, so the average age of our ticket is lesser than the Obama-Biden combo. So all you folks, go out on November 4, and vote for Senator McCain and me. Remember, we’ve seen it all.
