So now we know that Sarah Palin has been listening to Joe Biden’s speeches since she was in the second grade.
Katie Couric: You made a funny comment, you’ve said you have been listening to Joe Biden’s speeches since you were in second grade.
Gov. Palin: It’s been since like ’72, yah.
Katie Couric: You have a 72-year-old running mate, is that kind of a risky thing to say, insinuating that Joe Biden’s been around awhile?
Gov. Palin: Oh no, it’s nothing negative at all. He’s got a lot of experience and just stating the fact there, that we’ve been hearing his speeches for all these years. So he’s got a tremendous amount of experience and, you know, I’m the new energy, the new face, the new ideas and he’s got the experience based on many many years in the Senate and voters are gonna have a choice there of what it is that they want in these next four years.
If Sarah was listening to Joe Biden since she was 8 years old, does that mean that she was listening to John McCain while in utero? (Full credit time: that line comes to you courtesy of The Dean). Like how mothers put headphones on their stomachs to pipe in Mozart and foreign languages so that their fetuses can get a jump start on education? I mean, the man is a tad older than Biden, last I checked.
I can see it now, this year’s hottest Christmas DVD: Baby Palin. If Sarah Palin doesn’t make it to the real West Wing, she can create a series of DVDs for babies. (She’ll have two real-life examples to test-market the concept to.) Baby Palin can include a map, so one can see the proximity of Russia and Alaska. (“See the cool, clear waters of the very narrow maritime border between Russia and Alaska. Here’s my house. I can see Russia from my house. What can you see from your house?”)
