Song: "(I'm thinkin' 'bout nailin') Sarah Palin"

I'm of the mind that Democrats would do well not to over-react to the application of the Peter Principle to Sarah Palin. With her lack of experience and a litany of positions on most matters of policy that are horrific when they aren't nonsensical, the Veep-in-Waiting is a gift to the Obama team, should it decide to run on the issues. The party will have no difficulty building a convincing case against her. The campaign's advocates ought to leave her personal life, her family, her peck of pickled peccadillos out of the race. As Obama himself said, families should be off limits. So should personal attacks, especially by Democrats. Leave that to Republicans. They're oh, so much better at it.

What makes good sense for politicos, though, in no way applies to comedians. In fact, comics all over the country are energized at the prospect of a GOP win. Take, for example, the latest from Nashville-based songwriter and satirist Steve Goodie:

In the same spirit, here are some other thoughts on Sarah Palin:

"John McCain's VP pick is the governor of Alaska, a unknown hockey mom named Sarah Palin that no one ever heard of. The only other job she had in politics was the mayor of a small town known as Wasilla, Alaska, and now she has the opportunity to be on a ticket opposite of Barack Obama, the first black man she's ever seen." – Bill Maher

"When they were vetting her for this job, she said, quote, 'What is it exactly that the VP does every day?' Let me field that for you, Sarah. They start wars, they enrich their friends, they subvert the Constitution, and they shoot people in the face. That's what the vice president does." – Bill Maher

"Not only is she young, they're saying she's the prettiest candidate for vice president since John Edwards." - Jimmy Kimmel

"Palin and McCain are a good pair. She's pro-life and he's clinging to life." – Jay Leno

"Today President Bush called Gov. Palin and congratulated her. Bush told Palin the job of vice president is very important because as vice president, you get to tell the president what to do." – Jay Leno
