This is how the McCain campaign plans to get Sarah Palin out of the debate. The conversation between the campaigns will go something like this:
McCain: She wrote a book about Obama! Bias! Bias! New moderator or we walk!
Obama: Okay, fine with us. Got anybody else in mind?
McCain: Bill O’Reilly. The moderator has to be Pappa Bear or we walk!
Obama: Welllllll, okay. We can live with that.
McCain: What? No! Did we say Bill O’Reilly? We meant Dana Perino.
Obama: What, Bush’s press secretary?
McCain: Yeah, it’s Dana or nothing.
Obama: Sigh. Okay, Dana Perino.
McCain: No! Wait! We meant to say, uh, uh, uh, John McCain. Yeah! John McCain’s gotta moderate the veep debate or we walk!
Obama: Heavy sigh.
If McCain's people decide that Palin isn't ready for her debate, this is how they'll get her out of it.
