Another Political Post That Will Only Bring Me Trouble And Strife

... but I'm doing it anyway.

Announcing the 2008 Republican Nominee for Vice President of the United States:

Sadly, no.
Oh thank the Lord Jesus no.


So why am I posting this on a card blog after my last political post caused the closest thing to a flame war there has ever been on this site to break out? Well, equal time for one thing, but mostly because she's a

And because it gives me an excuse to post an autographed card of one of my favorite players - three time Stanley Cup Champion Joey Mullen, who grew up in New York, which is the state that Hillary Clinton represents as senator, and since Hillary is the reason Sarah Palin was chosen to be the nominee in the first place, the whole thing fits together nicely.

Just call yourself a soccer mom. they just have to drive minivans, eh? ;)

Probably not the start of a flame war that you were anticipating, but maybe this one can go down a more light hearted path.

So it's Obama/Biden vs. McCain/Palin. Interesting...

Let's hope the next 4 years will be better than the last 8 years. It can't get much worse, eh?

I agree with Chris; she looks almost exactly like Tina Fey! If only McCain were more like Alec Baldwin, it could be a great 30 Rock ticket...

I guess to stay consistent, 2008 Topps would make the most sense. It might be more fun to see her in a well-known hockey set design, though.
