Buy One, Get One Free? Not For Me

Because she had a good night last night, I'm going to go a little easy on Sarah Palin today. In fact, I think I'll give her a little free advice, which would be this:

Sarah, we all know you launched your bid last night to be the main occupant of The White House in 2016 (assuming you don't get to the Oval Office sooner). But do us all a favor and try to keep the First Dude out of it until then, 'kay? (wink) I mean, you don't need to let the American people in on the fact that your husband has played a very active role in governing Alaska. Last I checked, the First Dude wasn't running for anything. We all saw how well the "buy one get one free" strategy worked in '92 with Bill and Hill, so doggone it, why dontcha take a cue from them and leave Todd back in Alaska to help little 7-year old Piper take care of her infant brother.

I offer this free advice to Sarah based on her response to McCain's decision to concede Michigan to Obama/Biden:

I fired a quick e-mail and said, 'oh, come on! Do we have to call it there?' she said. "Todd and I would [be] happy to get to Michigan and walk through those plants [with] car
manufacturers."We'd be so happy to get to speak with the people there in Michigan, who are hurting because the economy is hurting," she added. "Whatever we can do and whatever Todd and I can do in realizing what their challenges in that state are, as we can relate to them and connect with them and promise them that we won't let them down in the administration."

We won't let them down in the administration. Hmm, well, ain't that special. (Perchance the Palins would enjoy watching "Roger & Me" before their trip to Michigan.)

As The Dean says, "Todd Palin makes Yoko Ono look like June Cleaver."
