Well, Sarah Palin could have been much worse in last night's debate with Joe Biden, but she still gave John McCain plenty of reasons to take her off the ticket and replace her with someone more competent. Here's a short list for such an honor:
Name Pros Cons
Former Pennsylvania Governor
Was the man McCain wanted to nominate before anti-choice activists told him otherwise. "Tom Ridge" is regrettably not a real person, but rather compiled 1950's file footage that Dick Cheney found in an archive.
Was the man McCain wanted to nominate before anti-jowl activists told him otherwise. His past use of a hearse as a campaign vehicle hits too close to home for McCain.
Former Massachusetts Governor
Displayed a mastery of economic principals in his past career as a "job killing machine." Much like Barack Obama, he may be too black for the electorate.
His vast knowledge of Wall Street will come in handy in wake of the federal bailout bill. May embarrass McCain at state dinners with all that shrieking.

With the rate at which these guys are undermining their own talking points, it's looking better and better for Barack Ayers Osama every day.
