“I know that earlier some of the experts this year are kind of tough on the Rays. I’ve been there. But what a difference a season can make. And now the Rays are in the playoffs for the first time ever. Florida knows a little something about turning an underdog into a victor, and together that’s what we can do.” –Sarah Palin

Listen toots, if you think you are as qualified to be the Vice President as Evan Longoria is at winning a World Series (or as adorable!) or as awesome and lovable as Cliff Floyd, you must be smoking some of that good old Wasilla meth. Couldn’t you have chosen the Phillies or something? You have many things in common, including coarseness, rudeness, loudness, and, uh, bumpkinness.

Full disclosure: I am absolutely fascinated by the Palins. I would love to read about them in a novel or HBO miniseries, and I would DIE for a Bristol/Levi reality show. But I don’t want them anywhere near the White House. The last day to register to vote in New York is October 10th. Please do so if you haven’t already. I am IN THE TANK.
