In an attempt to discredit the Republican vice-presidential nominee, fifty-something political pundit Arianna Huffington has challenged forty-something Alaska governor Sarah Palin to three rounds of mud wrestling.
"We are going to roll around in the mud until one of us emerges the clear victor," stated Huffington. Most odds compilers give Huffington the edge as she stands a full head taller than California Congressman Henry Waxman, who at 5'5" measures the same height as Palin.
"Arianna may have a leverage advantage," replied Palin. "But I have youth and quickness on my side. In addition, my dear old friend John McCain has been showing me some tricks from his 'Nam days when he was in the so-called Shit."
In the lead up to the event, media mogul Rupert Murdoch has announced that he owns sole television rights to the competition and that it will be carried exlusively as pay-per-view on the SKY Italia digital satellite network. Meanwhile, seventy-something Ronald Reagan Freedom Award Winner Mikhail Gorbachev is expected to officiate the match.
