October Surprise

Golly, Sarah Palin to play herself on 'SNL'. NY Post 10/10/08:
SOCCER moms and Joe Sixpacks, listen up. Get your beer, mooseburgers and caribou dips ready. Sarah Palin is doing "Saturday Night Live." Not Tina Fey doing Sarah Palin doing "Saturday Night Live." But the Sarah Herself. She has already OK'd it. She's booked. It's confirmed. Done deal. Sketches are being sketched as we speak. She - eyeglasses, haircomb, designer jacket and trunkful of gosh-darns, golly-gees and gol-dangs - will be on "SNL" Saturday night, Oct. 25. Sarah's rehearsal time has already been penciled in for Friday the 24th. And it's because she wants to do it.

So, my question is: Does this mean Tina Fey has plans to run for VP?
Unless this is dangerous, in the same way that allowing networks were forbidden to run bin Laden tapes in case that was a signal to terrorists. Somehow, with Fox and other "news" networks hanging on her every word, I'm less worried about a signal to rise up against the country than I am that this is just a psych-out to make her seem human. She's probably doing it to get SNL to soften their parodies so she won't swim off in a huff. Which she'll do anyway.
