Consider this scenario.
Sometime this week it will be revealed in the press that Barack Obama wrote a paper in college. In the paper he said that he strongly believed that in some parts of this country there are colonies of elves living a mile below the surface of the earth. And when questioned about it Obama says he still believes that to be true.
What do you think the reaction would be, especially from the right? You guessed it. The election would be over and next Jan. 20th we'd be watching John McCain and Sarah Palin being sworn in.
Of course Obama never wrote such a paper and I'm pretty sure he doesn't believe in elves or fairies or hobgoblins. Or that the earth is flat.
Now consider this. Sarah Palin once told a Wasilla resident that "men and dinosaurs coexisted on an Earth created 6,000 years ago."
"When he asked her about prehistoric fossils and tracks dating back millions of years, Palin said 'she had seen pictures of human footprints inside the tracks.'"
That's not a scenario however. It's true as the LA Times reported this morning.
More reason than ever as far as I'm concerned to make sure that the McCain Palin ticket doesn't get elected.
Couple that with the revelation earlier this month that Palin actually had a screwball pastor decalare her to be "witchcraft free."
And that she believes she has foreign policy experience because of Alaska's close proximity to Russia.
A friend of mine who supports McCain keeps telling me that Palin isn't running for president. He can't grasp the fact that John McCain shows signs that he may be slowly unraveling and probably won't serve a complete four years if elected.
And that leaves us with Palin in the White House.
And the prospect of that is scarier than any Jurassic Park movie.
