Biden Taps Granholm to be Debate Prep Partner

Yes, yes, yes, a thousand times yes. If there is one person in this country that is perfect for this job - it's our own governor: trained in acting, well-versed in Republican doublespeak from having it thrown at her so many times, and wicked smart enough to slip into this role with ease.

Get wig and glasses. So not kidding about that. Be the spitting image of this woman, and Joe will be totally ready.

(I didn't have any doubts about that anyway)

And Starring as Sarah Palin . . .

. . . Will be Jennifer Granholm, the 49-year-old Democratic governor of Michigan, mother of three and former Miss San Carlos, Calif.

The Obama-Biden campaign has selected Ms. Granholm to stand in for Ms. Palin to help prepare Senator Joseph R. Biden for the nationally televised Oct. 2 vice presidential debate in St. Louis.

Ms. Granholm, a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of the University of California, Berkeley, and Harvard Law School, has agreed to devote four days to Mr. Biden’s prep work, Biden aides said. Ms. Granholm is particularly well-suited to the task, having herself faced questions of inexperience when she was first elected governor in 2002 against a field of male candidates with many years in public office, including former Michigan Gov. James Blanchard.

Do me a favor - someone film this? Please? Probably be more informative (and entertaining) than the real thing.
