PUNK'D BY McCAIN
Palin phenomenon is actually the result of a practical joke gone haywire.'

PHOENIX -- (PTSD News)
-- Now that the election is over, bits and pieces of campaign secrets
are starting to see the light of day. The most shocking of these so far:
Governor Sarah Palin was not supposed to be Senator John McCain’s choice
for running mate.
“The Palin phenomenon is actually the result of a practical joke gone
haywire,” admitted Rick Davis, former McCain campaign manager. “John was
a guest on the Morning Madness radio show on Phoenix’s KZZP, hosted by
Fireball Frantic and Gene the Bean. When Frantic asked McCain which political
figure was the least qualified to be his running mate, McCain mentioned
an obscure governor from who was an ex-beauty queen. Frantic insisted
McCain prove he was still young enough to be ‘with it’ and insisted he
make that call to Alaska.”
“It was just a joke,” McCain recalls, “but she was so sincere and so excited,
I didn't have the heart to tell her I was just kidding. The hardest thing
about it,” admits McCain, “was having to tell my real selection -- Senator
Joe Lieberman -- that he was, well, not a chosen person when it came to
being the veep.”
“I must say that I was a little put off when John told me I wasn’t one
of the chosen people,” Lieberman said. “But it is just as well. The Republicans
took a monumental shellacking at the polls and I am going to have to peel
my lips off of George W. Bush’s tuchas and start kissing up to the Dems
Governor Palin was unavailable for comment, but a spokesperson said the
Governor would address the new allegations that she was part of a practical
joke right after she purchases a $150,000 commemorative Remington Rifle
and a box of shells that, in Palin’s own words, “has McCain name all over
This new joke revelation comes on the heels of a rather embarrassing prank
played on Palin by a couple of Montreal disc jockeys on CKOI radio, when
they called pretending to be President Sarkozy of France.
“Wait until Palin
learns about that other joke played on her,” said Reverend Pat Hailey
of the First Baptist Church of Juneau, “the one were it wasn't really
St. Peter who sent her that special invite.”
