Casting Call

Blogger is really acting up on me tonight, so I'll keep this short and sweet. (Actually, all of Google is problematic--it wouldn't even let me in to Google Mail in Firefox, let alone Blogger.)

If McCain wanted to hijack the news cycle, it sure looks like he's gotten his wish. Nobody's talking about much else but Sarah Palin. Unfortunately for McCain, not all of the talk is positive. I still find the whole thing surreal. Earlier today, Atrios brought attention to the following graphic:

Expressing surprise that the McCain campaign itself was responsible for such a cheesy graphic, he wrote:

I'm not even sure what to say about it... I don't know. It just looks like something from a bad Hollywood sitcomish movie about a presidential campaign.

He's right--it has that quality about it. Yglesias builds on the idea and suggests Tina Fey for the role. Although the glasses are right, Fey herself is wrong for this role. It can be none but Debra Messing. But who's going to play McCain? The floor is open for suggestions.

Senator McCain actually has a fair amount of acting experience (expecially considering that he is absolutely not a celebrity). Maybe he can play himself -- I'm guessing he'll have some free time after November.

That's a good point. McCain didn't exactly steal any scenes from Vince Vaughn or Owen Wilson in Wedding crashers, but he was pretty convincing as the stalker ex-boyfriend when he hosted SNL.

I have a wrinkled old shoe that looks a bit like McCain...
