NEW YORK - It’s Halloween and I'm going as the president. Not the president we have now, George Bush. And not the one we could have after Tuesday, Barack Obama or John McCain. No, I'm going as the scariest possible president of them all - Sarah Palin.
Gov. Sarah Palin's doppleganger, anchor Jami Floyd, on In Session set
Because if Sen. McCain wins next Tuesday, this woman will be a heartbeat away from the Oval Office. And maybe she's ready. Maybe all you need to be president is a good hairdo, a pair of non-reflective lenses and a red suit. Heck, I've got all of that. Maybe I should run?
After all, lots of Americans say they can relate to Sarah Palin. But I can't. Because we just don't have all that much in common. She's a Republican. I'm a Democrat. Her kids play hockey. Mine play soccer. She lives in a state with a population of 700,000. I live in a city of 8 million. They hunt moose in Alaska. In New York, we hunt cockroaches. She's got a $150,000 wardrobe. Me not so much.
But what do I know? She's a maverick. She can see Russia from her backyard. So maybe she is ready to take that 3 a.m. call. But be careful what you wish for. Because after tonight I can take off this Sarah Palin costume. But Palin may just one day find herself president. And we may all pay the price.
