Yesterday, the New England Patriots ended their 21 game winning streak with a loss to the Miami Dolphins.
Many fans are blaming the loss on the absence of injured quarterback Tom Brady. With all due respect to New England’s backup quarterback Matt Cassel, we here at The Palin Doctrine think there is a better replacement for the injured Brady: Sarah Palin.
Palin is a dedicated football fan (she is a member of the Seattle Seahawks’ official team fan club) who has seen a good number of football games. Clearly this record of experience with the sport shows that she is ready to step in and lead the Patriots.
But New England would not be the only party to benefit in this arrangement.
For some reason, many people seem to think that Sarah Palin’s ability to see Russia from Alaska does not in fact give her significant foreign policy experience. And as a result, they aren’t sure that they can trust her with the nuclear football.
Proving that the experience she has gained from watching football has prepared her to play in the NFL will go a long way towards proving that she has the experience necessary to be Vice President.
No word yet from Bill Belichick.
