Sarah Palin is invited to meet with the Pope while he is vacationing 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 white skullcap (zucchetto) blows off his head and out into the water.
The gondolier starts to reach for the Pontiff’s cap 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, steps aboard and hands the hat to the Pope amid stunned silence.
The next morning the MSM headlines of the — Associated Press, New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, CBS News, NBC News, MSNBC News, ABC News, and CNN — are screaming with delight:
“Palin Can’t Swim.”
