Palin grabs a seat at the bar
Source: Philly.com

Perhaps it was coincidence that the song "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" was playing as Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin worked the crowd at the Irish Pub last night.

But her amorous fans were definitely ready to let the moose-hunting Alaska governor rule.

"I expect her to be president of the United States one day," said Suzanne Haney, the Republican leader for the 2nd Ward in South Philadelphia, who gave Palin a $2 bill for luck.

Palin appeared at the bar on 20th and Walnut streets last night to shake hands with her fans for about an hour before the first presidential debate. While the crowd inside was friendly, hundreds of people lined the street outside in protest with signs that read things like "Palin is Santorum With Lipstick."

Palin did not take questions from reporters nor did she talk policy. She posed for pictures and chatted with supporters, many of whom were from outside the city limits, and made an approximately minute-long statement.

Ironically, although it was the campaign keeping her under wraps, the networks were receiving hate mail from McCain supporters about their bias in preventing their hot hockey mom from imparting her astute analysis of the event. I guess if you're deluded enough to think that she's qualified for office, it wouldn't occur to you that the media has been griping for weeks that they can't get any face time with her, so naturally they believe it's a conspiracy by the 'liberal' media.

I wouldn't be surprised if the McCain sends out a fundraising letter stating just that. Why not? They lie about everything else.

1. "I expect her to be president of the United States one day," Uh huh.
I expect her to be in jail one day, myself.

3. The networks didn't think to look in a bar for a Christian lady.

4. I think a more appropriate song may have been...
REM's It's The End of the World as I Know it (And I Feel Fine). Hey, maybe McPOW could steal THAT as his new campaign event song!

5. For a minute I thought this was going to be about her being made an "honorary" lawyer.
But from the sound of it, the only thing missing was her bathing suit.
