Political pundits around the world were startled by the findings contained in a white paper recently issued by the McNicholas Foundation for Political Research. The foundation contacted 4,160 Americans back in October 2008 and provided a hypothetical list of presidential candidates to each respondent. The study participants were then asked to choose which candidate for whom they would vote. The results are somewhat astounding:
Quite unsurprisingly, Sarah Palin finished at the bottom of the list. "I think the fact chewed gum finished better than Mrs. Palin is a bit ironic," laughed our political analyst, "given that her thighs and ass probably look like about 50 pounds of chewed bubble gum." Hey-ooooo!
