Then she's off, late Monday night or Tuesday morning, to Philadelphia, where she has already spent a lot of time, during the late summer and fall campaign season. Palin will be there to attend the National Governors Association annual conference. Also attending on Tuesday, will be President-elect Barack Obama
Palin spokeseunuch, Bill McAllister, has tried to make something out of the possibility, dim as it might be, that Palin might meet Obama one-on-one, while there. I'm not going to say that such a meeting is improbable, but it might be unlikely, given what Palin will be doing in Georgia on Monday - throwing red meat to large crowds of people, drawn from her base base.
I posted a diary at Daily Kos early this afternoon, snarkily suggesting that Obama might offer Palin a post in his upcoming Team of Rivals. Besides the obvious suggestions - Ambassador to Russia (she can see it from....), Ambassador to France (she's already spoken with the Prime Minister) and Ambassador to Turkey (you betcha! -also suggested, "Ambassador to turkeys"), there have been more creative solutions. Here's one of many:
... Under Secretary of Data Utility Management, Business Administration Security and Services (DUMBASS) in the Department of Education. Then she could serve as an example to the nation's schoolchildren about the dangers of where you could end up if you don't stay in class and study hard to at least learn the English language.
One thing for sure, though. Palin challenges the snark level of a lot of liberals and progressives. Genuine conservatives, too...
