Sarah Palin is so phenomenally popular, drawing near-worshipful crowds wherever she appears, so completely in control, running the largest state of the Union - she could be a reincarnation of a Greek goddess! She could be Artemis! Or Athena! Or Aphrodite (just ask 90% of American men!) Or - dare I say it? - A trinity of all three!
Is she Goddess of democratic republics, or the Goddess of republican democracy?
Is it too soon to tell?
And, how do the others fit in?
Obama -- he's pretty fast on his feet -- basketball, and always pacing back and forth when speaking -- he's Mercury, the God of Fast Talk.
McCain -- single-handedly taking on the Republican machine -- the G.O.P.* -- he's Atlas, but a little tired out from holding up the Earth for so many centuries.
Biden -- I don't know. Maybe that little guy with the horns, furry legs, hooves, and a mean harmonica. Just imagine how he thinks of Palin!
