Presidential hopeful John McCain has picked Sarah Palin because of her British family connections.

In a statement issued today, the office of John McCain said:

"We felt Sarah Palin's relationship with a brother who has direct access to an important British Ministry was most relevant in terms of the USA Presidency.

"As sister to Michael Palin, the British TV star who worked alongside your Minister for Silly Walks in the Monty Python Government, she would be well-placed for some first hand and first class advice from Mr Palin.

"Your Minister for Silly Walks is very revered here in the USA, and the fact her brother Michael worked closely with this Ministry is bound to have serious political ramifications for the run up to the elections in November, or whenever they're held.

"If we can tie down and wrap up Silly Walks, we will be well on the way to a totally silly presidency, not seen since Gerald Ford fell off an aeroplane. Now that was silly. And as for the names President Regan called your Princess Diana, well that was even sillier.

"Also, from an accounting point of view, Mr Palin's alter-ego, Arnold Putey, the famous accountant who went on British national television to explain why accountancy is not boring, well this is so unbelievably relevant as to be totally astounding.

"We are expecting the British Minister for Silly Walks to tour with Ms Palin as the election process hots up."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
