An uneducated choice

As I've readily admitted in a previous blog, I know nothing about politics. I don't follow what's going on in the political arena. At all. But I happened to catch a fast fact about John McCain's vice presidential choice on the front page of the newspaper that almost made me spray my morning decaf out my nose.

Sarah Palin, the Alaska governor on deck to assume the duties of the commander-in-chief, has a bachelor's in journalism.

A bachelor's degree in journalism. The person who's a heartbeat away from being the leader of the free world--and the heart in question belongs to a 72-year-old--has a friggin' bachelor's degree in journalism.

You gotta be kidding me.

We have advanced degrees. I believe this means that you or I could become president. What do you think?

I remember when I turned 35. That was the only birthday that really bothered me. I thought, "Yikes--I'm old enough to be president!" And now I'm old enough and smart enough, and dammit, people like me. You never know... but I'd want a coronation instead of an inauguration.

Could this be the coronation that I've dreamed about? If I campaign for you, would you make me your Secretary of Agriculture? Because I have a dream of hemp fields from sea to shining sea.
