Here is something I got through email from a friend of mine. I just couldn't resist posting it here for all to see.
Sarah Palin is invited to meet with the Pope while he is vacationing
south of Rome in Venice.
The liberal press reluctantly watches the semi-private audience, hoping
they will be able to allot minimal coverage, if any.
The Pope asks Governor Palin to join him on a Gondola ride through the
canals of Venice.
They're admiring the sights and agreeing on moral issues when all of a
sudden the Pope's hat (zucchetto) blows off his head and out into the
The gondolier starts to reach for the Pontiff's hat with his pole, but
this move threatens to overturn the floating craft.
Sarah waves the tour guide off, saying, 'Wait, wait. I'll take care of
this. Don't worry.'
She steps off the gondola onto the surface of the water and walks out
to the Pope's hat, bends over and picks it up. She walks back across
the water to the gondola and steps aboard.
She hands the hat to the Pope amid stunned silence.
The next morning the topic of conversation among Congress, CBS News,
NBC News, ABC News, CNN, the New York Times, Hollywood celebrities, and
in France and Germany is...
...'Palin Can't Swim.'
