Professor Sarah Palin
About a third of Americans think the best job for Palin is homemaker (32 percent), while nearly one in five see her as a television talk show host (17 percent). Vice president of the United States comes in third (14 percent), followed closely by college professor (10 percent), with president coming last (6 percent).
Republicans think the best job for Palin is vice president (27 percent), followed by homemaker (18 percent), talk show host (14 percent), president (12 percent) and professor (7 percent).
Jim Henley shares the post via Google Reader and remarks, “College professor?”
Aside from name recognition and the publicity angle, she’s quite literally not qualified to teach at a community college, let alone have the title “professor” bestowed upon her. The woman has been a mayor and (briefly) governor of a state and presumably has some knowledge to impart to young people. But she barely cobbled together an undergraduate degree, let alone demonstrated mastery of a scholarly discipline.
Update (Alex Knapp) I beg to differ with my colleague James on this score. As the video clip below demonstrates, Sarah Palin is eminently qualified to be a Creative Writing Professor.
