The Sarah Palin Controversy or Why did John McCain Choose Sarah Palin?

Dear Tina Fey,

Sure the political pundits will kick around a lot of high sounding arguments for why John McCain might have chosen one candidate above another for his running mate for the job that puts a person in an empty office contemplating the one big question of the vice presidency, "What is it like to be one heartbeat away from the Oval office?"

By the way what is the shape of the vp's office? A parallelogram?

Tina, you and I both know that John McCain's decision to choose Sarah Palin lies in the frames of your glasses. One obscure political lackey was assigned the job of comparing current political figures to likely comedians and their abilities to do impressions. When this picture arrived on his desk, the decision was made.

"That, my fellow Americans," he said, "is the next Vice President of the United States." "Which one," said the staff? "I, I'm not sure," said McCain. "And could you get my wife a pair of those glasses?"

So that's how it happened, and for those of us who are members of the Tina Fey Fan Club, we are glad it did.
