In a shock revelation, a spelling mistake has been revealed in the running Vice President, Sarah Palin's name.
Records show that her names is actually Sarah Plain. It is an easy mistake to make, the A and the L were put in in reverse order on her application papers. An Office drone in Washington has been sacked,as his wages will now cover getting new stationary and cards made up for the potential Vice President.
John McCain, heir to the Chip and Frozen Food empire said: 'It was an easy mistake to make. We are glad we have found out about it now though, before it went any further'
Sarah Palin herself said: 'For years people called me Plain, because it was my name, not my looks. I won beauty contests you know. And then I had the chance to not be plain anymore. It has scuppered my chances now. For a while I was a Palin, and all I had to do was to put up with people thinking I was related to a bloke from Monty Python, the twinkly eyed travelling chap. It has all been for nothing, which is better than something, I suppose'
