What the title will be has not been settled, but one thing is definite, by Halloween Sarah Palin will no longer be referred to as "Former Vice Presidential Candidate, Sarah Palin."
"She was the nominee for 67 days. How long do you leave a job you kept for two months on your resume?" said a card-carrying member of the political left. "The press is tired of calling her that, the public is tired of hearing it, and quite frankly, we think it may be one of the reasons why she won't go away."
Her new title? Mr. CCMOTPL said the question is unresolved. "We were going to call her "Former Alaska Governor" because she held that job a little bit longer than 67 days," he said. "Then, the Alaska Attorney General threatened to take us to court. Coming up with titles isn't hard. The difficulty is coming up with a title you can say on television."
The following are names that at some point were proposed, but for a variety of reasons did not make it to the list of finalists.
The Great Fabricator
The Old Tea Bag
McCain's Idea of a Joke
The Moose Stalker
Drill, Baby, Drill
A final decision is expected in late October.
