If John McCain kicks the bucket...

By Ai Lung Nguyen - October 2008.

UNITED STATES - If 72 year old John McCain wins the US presidency, but kicks the bucket in the next four year years his vice-president Sarah Palin will be sworn in as President of the United States of America.

McCain is already the same age the average America dies, and his health is not spectacular. Due to some recent gaffes its even become a question of whether he's going senile in his old age.

Its possible after all. America could end up with a president who keeps reminiscing about bygone eras in the midst of speeches, perhaps even forgetting where he is and thinking he is back in a POW camp in Vietnam.

I admit it sounds kind of funny, but its possible. Look at what happened to Boris Yeltsin and Fidel Castro. They both went senile but managed to stay in power for years.

And if he doesn't go senile there's always the potential for catastrophic heart attack, stroke, brain aneurysm or old fashioned cancer. It would certainly highlight the poor state of America's health care system.

In that event Sarah Palin would be sworn in as president, would pick a vice president and serve out the rest of the presidential term playing the "reluctant leader" and "grieving colleague" role. If she played her cards right she could even win a second term.

But will Americans like Sarah Palin? I mean, she's an extremist and by extremist I mean she forces her beliefs onto others against their will. She doesn't listen to polls or the will of the people (neither did George W. Bush for that matter).

Also given the current financial troubles facing the United States (the credit crisis, the budget deficit, the weak American dollar, interest rates, oil prices and corporate crime) does Sarah Palin have any experience dealing with such problems?

None whatsoever. Palin knows nothing about economics. She's a right wing crusader for pro-life, anti-gay marriages and conservative Christian values.

Does America really need Christian crusader for president when we should be focusing on the economic mess George W. Bush left the USA?
