I'm Not Running For Vice President

I have pretty intelligent friends. Almost everyone I know has a college degree, follows current events, listens to NPR, sees Cohen brothers movies, eats goat cheese, has been to a museum in at least the past year, and does a whole lot of other things that are the hallmark of brainy people in America. I am positive that almost all of my friends are smarter than Sarah Palin. Or, at least I used to be.

Last night I was talking on the phone with Tara and we were discussing an article about the rumors that during Palin's interview with Katie Couric she could not name any Supreme Court decisions other than Roe v. Wade. We were shocked! We were outraged! And then we were silent -- because neither one of us could name another one either. About five seconds later we both blurted out "Brown v. Board of Education," but the damage had already been done. Ryan, who was sitting beside me, smirked. "Brown," he said, "that's all ya got?" He then rattled off at least a dozen cases, including the most obvious one -- Bush v. Gore.

Well, at least my husband is smarter than Sarah Palin.

Just give Ryan some goat cheese & turn him loose in Cabela's.
