Look, we've had our disagreements on whether the hockey-centric details of Gov. Sarah Palin's vice presidential candidacy belong on this blog or do not. But wicked satire cuts across partisan lines, whether it's "Dr. Strangelove" or "Primary Colors."
We're not saying this CollegeHumor.com movie trailer parody is on that level of informed political insight. But if a line like "well, I have to pick up Algebra at hockey practice and I've got a lasagna in the oven" can't earn at least a grin in these maudlin times, what can?

We actually have a rooting interest here: If Sarah Palin is the vice president, then there's a chance we could one day have the second most powerful person in Washington (based on line of succession) give us Five Ways She'd Change the NHL.
Or, at the very least, we could have her provide expert analysis of the impending threat of the KHL, based on geographic osmosis. One of the two.
