Palinology versus Pythonology

Further to earlier discussion of Sarah Palin, I just came across this YouTube video, which proposes that McCain picked the wrong Palin, and that he should have gone for Michael Palin instead!

Before you say this has nothing to do with evolution, there are clear links between Monty Python (if not Michael Palin) and evolutionary theory, as seen here:

In fact, the parallels between this sketch and Michael Behe's evasive and vague responses at the Dover trial led William Saletan writing in Slate magazine to label the exchange "Monty Python's Flying Creationism"!

Forget all those TV debates, let's judge the presidential and vice-presidential candidates on each side by how well they can perform the Dead Parrot sketch!
