Palin presidency not so farfetched

The chances of Sarah Palin becoming president aren’t as farfetched as you might think.  Will Fairbrother, an assistant professor of biology at Brown University, calculated the odds and found that Palin has a one in eight chance of becoming president if the McCain-Palin ticket is elected.

A Palin presidency isn’t outside the realm of possibility – if elected, McCain will be 72 on inauguration day and has battled cancer four times.  In case you’re skeptical, the Brown University web site says Fairbrother uses computational techniques in his research on the human genome, so he had the tools to come up with more than just an educated guess.

Yikes, a one in eight chance?  That’s too rich for my blood!  Just one look at her stance on the issues scares the heck out of me.
