Obama Makes First Cabinet Selection – Crosses Party Lines

In a surprise move, President Elect Barack Obama quickly filled an important position by crossing the aisle.  “I want to begin my presidency by filling a top position with a person I respect, admire and believe in.”  The position of Secretary of State requires expertise in negotiation with foreign powers.  Typically it is a partisan position filled by a senior member with vast knowledge and experience.  The position is also fourth in line for the presidency, hence the excitement over the move.   “Her foreign policy experience is second to none.  She is on the front lines and has proven successful in managing what many believe is a tenuous situation.”

“For the extremely important post of Secretary of State of the United States of America, I nominate Governor Sarah Palin of the great state of Alaska.  Some have asked me why?  My answer is simple.  She said it best:”


Alaska has a very narrow maritime border between a foreign country, Russia, and on the other side a land boundary that we have with Canada…(that enhances my foreign policy experience) because our next door neighbors are foreign countries.  They’re in the state that I am the executive of.”

Governor Palin could not be reached for comment, but is said to be mulling over this position with sincere thought.  Randy Scheunemann, John McCain’s chief foreign policy advisor, said, “This is a brilliant move by the President Elect.  This could be the first step towards healing relationships with foreign countries.  Sarah Palin will shine in her new role.”

Who’s the most excited person in the Palin camp?  Amy Strozzi, Gov. Sarah Palin’s traveling makeup artist.  Ms. Strozzi, who was nominated for an Emmy award for her makeup work on the television show “So You Think You Can Dance?”, stated, “I can’t wait to dress her up in the various outfits she’ll need when visiting so many different countries and cultures!  It’ll be like dressing up a doll!”  Ms. Stozzi was paid $22,800 for the first two weeks of October alone for her work on the presidential campaign.  Also excited about the possible move is  Angela Lew, who is Ms. Palin’s traveling hair stylist. She got $10,000 for “Communications Consulting” in the first half of October for the campaign.  “You know, when I did Sarah’s hair and came up with that cool updo, I was asked by Tina Fey to do her’s also.  My business has really taken off!”

Governor Palin’s husband Todd, when asked his thoughts on the move, said, “Look out Saks 5th and Neiman Marcus, we’re coming for YOU!”

Governor Palin is set to announce her decision later this week.  Last night, after Senator McCain’s concession speech, she boarded a plane headed to Illinois, presumably to meet with President Elect Obama.

  1. That’s why McCain did not win. Maybe he would have had a chance if he would have chosen a different candidate. After all he does look like a descent human being. I liked him.
