Palin way under the radar

Apparently, the GOP vice presidential nominee — Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin — has come as a huge surprise to Democrats.

How big of a surprise? Of the nine contenders listed on TheNextCheney.com, Palin is not among them.

"Since the print publication of this list, Christie, in his capacity as chairman of the Republican Governors Association, helped decisively turn the midterm elections in the Republicans' favor, which makes him a bit more influential than we initially gave him credit for, post-Bridgegate. So when your state governments do absolutely nothing for you for the next four years, be sure to thank him!"
