Not long after Sarah Palin emerged from tundra obscurity to take her dubious place on the national stage, I suggested that the GOP had picked the wrong Palin--that in fact Michael Palin, the Python, brought many more positives (and far fewer negatives) to the McCain ticket than the former mayor of Wasilla.
And now, no less an expert than fellow Python John Cleese claims that, of the two Palins, the governor is actually the funnier one:
So perhaps we could offer a straight swap: The Pythons get Sarah Palin, and the Republicans get Michael Palin.
Doesn't seem like a fair trade to me, but it was Cleese who brought it up.
