The 2012 Republican Primary

Text settings

A (Democratic) friend sends me this entertaining scenario:

Muscatine, Iowa 2012


Gov. Palin:  We are going to change America, change it from higher taxes, higher crime, and a quagmire in Afghanistan.


fmr. Gov. Romney:  I know how to make change. I'm running on 20 years of a record of change, of commitment to America and conservatism, Gov. Palin is running on the strength of a speech from four years ago.  Are we going to have change with results, or change with a teleprompter?  We know what that has gotten us.

UPDATE: Mike Crowley received the same email and beat me to posting it by three minutes. Damn you Crowley, damn you.
