Failsafe Plan for Palin by Robert S. McElvaine

Tina Fey as the White Princess

It is--thank God, John McCain and the greedy Wall Street fat cats--looking less and less likely that the Republican ticket will win the election on November 4th.

But should disaster happen and place in the White House the man who chose Sarah Palin to be a heartbeat from the presidency and place Gov. Palin on the edge of the presidency, there is an obvious solution.


The failsafe plan to avert catastrophe was on view once again this past Saturday night. Tina Fey looks and acts more like Sarah Palin than Palin herself does.

In the event that the Gone Old Party candidates are elected, it will be incumbent on patriotic Americans to spirit Gov. Palin off to Dick Cheney's Undisclosed Location and keep her there throughout the Republican administration.

Tina Fey would then take Palin's place. Then, were "Palin" to be elevated to the presidency, Fey could take over and keep the nation in the hands of a sensible, informed person.

Is there anyone who seriously thinks that Tina Fey would not be a much better president than Sarah Palin?

Defend the bad against the worse."
