Ms. Amos Goes To Washington?

I've always been a fan of Tori Amos. He wit and ability to capture an emotion or moment is more powerful than most female musicians of her era. But would that make her a good politician? Moreover, would she be accepted - as a Republican?

American singer TORI AMOS has vowed to run for office if former U.S. Vice President candidate SARAH PALIN ever tries to get elected again.
Republican Palin's role in the 2008 White House race divided America, with many questioning her credentials - and the Spark hitmaker insists she'll run alongside the Alaskan if she ever eyes the vice presidential candidacy again.
She says, "If Palin runs again, I'm going to run on a Republican ticket. What I know about Middle Eastern policy could fit on a thumbnail, but I still know more than she does. You have to ask, how could a nation nearly vote in somebody who isn't qualified for the job?"
But Amos feels more positive about the future of her country now U.S. President Barack Obama is in power: "I'm a lot more hopeful. The (George W.) Bush years were really difficult times if you were an American who loved your country. Having someone now that so many people respect doesn't mean there aren't going to be problems, but so many problems have been left behind."

Even though Tori Amos is more extensively travelled and knowledgeable of the world around her - as well as being an activist for multiple causes for many years - it's far more likely that that Cubs would win the next two World Series than her gaining political office.

And this is just the type of statement that the fine folks over at Fox"Nation" just love. It gives them a chance to make fools of themselves again while defending Sarah Palin without being able to enumerate even one aspect of her that would be beneficial to the American public. Not only that, but a lot of these people don't even know who Tori Amos is. But that's the least of their problems.
