Leno/Palin 2012

"No one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American Public."
-Henry Mencken

America loves low-brow middle of the road humor as evidenced by Jay Leno's high ratings upon his return and the fact that America's Funnies Home Videos is still on the air. That America also loves Sarah Palin and seems hell-bent on making her a White House hopeful is, at best frightening, and at worst, indicative that the American public may be suffering from brain damage in larger numbers than anyone ever dreamed possible.

I do not understand anyone's fascination with the ever-vapid Sarah Palin. How she ever became governor of a state is a testament to the power of white privilege and being considered pretty. That she ever became a vice-presidential candidate and, God forbid, a contender for the White House is proof that the dumbing down of America is near completion.

If she runs, she choose Leno as her running mate. I'm sure they'd sweep the nation. Between his contempt for middle-class America and her folksy dimwitted charm, I can only promise that I, and many like me, would make good on our previous campaign promises and move to Canada.
