You know you've strayed from the true purpose of being a politician when the media cares less about what your views are on things such as the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the economy, health care and immigration reform, and more about whether or not you've recently had breast augmentation surgery.
Such is the strange case of Sarah Palin whose tight-fitting white top at the Belmont Stakes had tongues wagging more about her appearance than about her future plans.
1st Reporter: Did she or didn't she?
2nd Reporter: Did or didn't she what? Announce her candidacy?
1st Reporter: No, silly. Did she or didn't she get a boob job?
2nd Reporter: Oh that! Yes, I believe her boobs do look larger and a bit more perky than in the past.
1st Reporter: Do you suppose it was paid for with Sarah-PAC money?
2nd Reporter: Don't know, but I'll get my ace investigator on it right away.
1st Reporter: Notice how Todd just can't take his eyes off Sarah's chest?
2nd Reporter: Yes, he does look a bit happier these days. I would assume the boob job was a trade off for Sarah being gone so much lately.
1st Reporter: Is it just my imagination or did Sarah get her teeth whitened?
2nd Reporter: (Sigh) I'll be glad when this oil spill business is all cleaned up so we can get back to reporting the real news without being called anti-American.
