Nightmare: Mrs Moose governs the globe!

Here's a terrifying thought experiment. Hypothesis: John McCain is elected president. Now imagine: In the exciting high-altitude post-electoral atmosphere, while screwing over-energetically his golden girl Cindy, the 72-year-old war hero ruptures some kind of bodily aeronautical valve, fails to manipulate correctly the bail-out device, and crashes in flames to his death. Oh my God! It's youthful Mrs Moose, 44-year-old Sarah Palin from Alaska, totally inexperienced in worldly affairs and primed with primitive religious beliefs, who would then take the reins of the most powerful nation of the planet...

Let's be optimistic. In selecting Simple Sarah as his presidential running-mate (she strikes me as the sort of earthy backwoods creature who knows both how to run and how to mate), John McCain has surely removed all barriers on Barack Obama's highway to Washington.

  1. Reportedly Mrs Moose, is quite complex: fully in favour of oil exploration in Alaska, she has been by all accounts quite feisty with the oil companies.

    All well and good. Sadly I have discovered that this highly-motivated woman is a creationist which rather puts her beyond the pale as far as I am concerned.

    On the other hand there are orthodox Muslims apparently with university degrees.

    The human mind is undeniably complex...
