HOLLYWOOD, California - Hugh Hefner has stated that if John McCain is not elected president that he would like for Sarah Palin to appear in Playboy Magazine.
Hef said that Palin would make a great centerfold and that the edition would literally fly off the store shelves.
When told of his remarks, Governor Palin smiled and said, "You know losing the election really and truly would not be such a bad thing. I mean people are always taking pictures of me for free so getting paid $1 million would be, and please excuse my French, a damn good deal. It's true, I'm 44-years-old, but I've been told that I have the body of a 40-year-old.
"Golly, gee, $1 million, just think of all the high-powered hunting rifles that could buy, and all the snowmobiles. Gosh I could even buy all of Anchorage. But the first thing I'm gonna buy, excuse me, I mean the first thing that I would buy, and it would be for my Toddy, is the biggest, fanciest salmon fishing boat in the entire world. You know, I've never been one to buy things for myself but I could probably finally get those contact lenses that I've wanted since I was 31."
In a related story, a McCain campaign aide said that he overheard Cindy McCain remark about Hefner's offer to Palin, "Hey how about me? I'm pretty, I slim, I'm trim. Yes it's true I don't need the money like Sarah does, but it sure would be a tremendous ego booster to this 54-year-old gal. And remember not long ago, when we were up in Sturgis, Johnny actually suggested that I enter The Miss Buffalo Chip Contest."
