The American people.
You know what’s a real hilarity-killer? The Democratic version of that joke, had Obama lost the election.
President Sarah Palin.
Right. You might want to check your facts there.
Why do I have to spell everything out today? Why must I connect every dot? Is the Internet high?
Barack Obama, John McCain, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are on a boat together and it starts sinking. Who gets saved?

Except that joke’s not funny to Democrats, or even broad anti-incumbents. They’d prefer Old Man War to the Most Unqualified Person to Ever Seek the Office. Sarah Palin’s approval ratings are around where Bush’s were when he got booed out of office.
There are a lot of people (in certain regions, *ahem*) who would find “President Biden” far preferable to President Terrorist McBirthCertificate. But ”President Sarah Palin” isn’t comforting to people who don’t like Sarah Palin — which is most people. It’s chilling.
