Any who laboured under the delusion that the former governor of a state with a population smaller than Detroit's (who quit before completing a single term to jump at the chance at a lucrative career in the entertainment field) can now confront reality."There will be an election for president in 2012. If the presidential election were held today and the candidates were Barack Obama, the Democrat, and Sarah Palin, the Republican, and you had to choose, for whom would you vote?" Options rotated. Among registered voters.

Yes, the Huckster is an affable rodeo clown who claims not to share the same genetic heritage as the rest of humanity, and he is now vying with Willard, the universal, mandatory health insurance innovator, as they slap each other silly for first place in the dole line at the GOP's five-star soup kitchen.
