How I Predicted Sarah Palin's Debate Performance

You heard it here first--if Sarah Palin turns out to be an alien, or the product of a freak experiment, I get the credit, OK?

All day I've been accepting congratulations (well, mostly from myself) about my eerie prediction about Sarah Palin's performance in the debate. On the Monday before the debate on Wednesday, I wrote of Gov. Palin's surprising proficiency in foreign and domestic policy.

"Gov. Palin's surprising performance," I wrote, "began with the first question, 'How will Uyghur nationalism affect the future of the East Turkestan Islamic Movement?'" Gov. Palin responded with a detailed history of separatism in Xinjiang province and a list of the home regions of Uyghur farmers, from Kashgaria to Uyghurstan. She then winked at the camera and said, "Gotcha!"

I got the wink right, but missed on the Uyghurs.

I may also have been incorrect with my inference that Palin's agility would be the result of a brain transplant.

But what do you think is under all that hair? And did you see the pictures in the New York Times of the so-called "Beehive" salon she frequents? Nice place to hide a secret laboratory, I figure.

So you heard it here first--if Sarah Palin turns out to be an alien, or the product of a freak experiment, I get the credit, OK?
