Since Palin’s VP acceptance speech, she has been tutored by McCain’s assistants and handlers on the topic of the wide world beyond Alaska.Â Teaching her how to think like a 72 year old POW enthusiast is a monumental task.

Itâ€™s like cramming for the LSAT in two weeks, except in this case, the LSAT is â€œthe entirety of foreign and domestic United States policy,â€ which has nothing to do with The Law. (Wonkette)
But what if she rebels? What if upon considering the fate of the nation under McCain she is allowed ten minutes of bedtime youtube exploration. Say she watches a Cindy Sheehan video, or perhaps stumbles upon McCain’s faithfully documented failures. Would she run away? Return to Wasilla?Â
Perhaps the tutoring will turn her into a Republican dream machine….
