In a perfect world -- a perfect comedy world, that is -- Mitt Romney would choose Sarah Palin as his running mate for President in November. We had so much fun with her in 2008, it's a shame that it probably won't happen again.
In it, Palin sits down with longtime Romney aide Beth Myers and tries to impress her with her great knowledge of foreign and domestic policy. But what happens when Myers takes away her index cards? Watch the video above to find out, and check out a slideshow from Gotcha Media below highlighting Palin's biggest misses.
Using the Term "Blood Libel"
If you don't count <a href="http://twitter.com/#!/SarahPalinUSA/status/23831859926409216"target="_blank">Twitter</a>, <a href="http://fb.me/FcGTV0dG"target="_blank">Facebook</a> and <a href="http://gtcha.me/g2dtmm"target="_blank">email to Glenn Beck</a>, this was Palin's first public statement on the Arizona shooting.
Coining the Word "Refudiate"
Palin invented the "<a href="http://www.gotchamediablog.com/2010/11/snl-seth-meyers-refudiates-sarah-palin.html" target="_hplink">word of the year</a>" on Twitter while blasting the Ground Zero Mosque.
Writing Crib Notes on Her Hand
After making fun of Obama for using a teleprompter, it was particularly egregious to see Sarah Palin <a href="http://gtcha.me/aV8Z5g" target="_hplink">using notes written on her hand during an interview</a>. This led to endless parodies, my favorite being <a href="http://www.gotchamediablog.com/2010/02/robert-gibbs-mocks-palins-hand.html" target="_hplink">Robert Gibbs writing "hope and change" on his hand</a> before a press conference.
Making the Crosshairs Map
In the run-up to the 2010 Midterm Elections, Sarah Palin made this <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/03/24/sarah-palins-pac-puts-gun_n_511433.html" target="_hplink">"Take Back The 20" map</a> to show which Democrats she wanted the GOP to take out. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, who appears on the map, was <a href="http://gtcha.me/gA6OJV" target="_hplink">concerned about it back in March</a> and it has now led to pundits laying some blame on Palin for the shooting.
Attempting Stand-up Comedy
When Sarah Palin went on <em>The Tonight Show</em> early last year, for some reason <a href="http://www.gotchamediablog.com/2010/03/leno-sarah-palin-on-tonight-show.html" target="_hplink">Jay Leno let her do stand-up</a>. At least the hosts of Fox and Friends got a kick out of it.
Pardoning a Turkey In Front of a Turkey Slaughter-House
This move was <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/11/20/sarah-palin-holds-news-co_n_145375.html" target="_hplink">just plan odd</a>. Hard to tell if she didn't notice or didn't care.
Palin first major mistake on national TV was her inability to come up with anything that she reads during an interview with Katie Couric. She later couldn't recall any <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/09/29/latest-palin-gaffe-cant-n_n_130395.html" target="_hplink">Supreme Court decisions</a> or <a href="http://www.gotchamediablog.com/2010/01/sarah-palins-favorite-founder-is-all-of.html" target="_hplink">Founding Fathers</a>.
Getting Pranked by Canadians
Leave it to Canadians to <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/11/01/masked-avengers-prank-cal_n_140023.html" target="_hplink">successfully prank call</a> and brutally embarrass Sarah Palin.
Quitting as Alaska's Governor
<a href="http://www.gotchamediablog.com/2009/07/sarah-palins-farewell-speech.html" target="_hplink">Leaving her job as Governor of Alaska in the middle of her term</a> didn't exactly make Palin seem any more presidential.
Forgetting Joe Biden's Name
It was Palin's first debate with with Senator Joe Biden, and as her opening "Can I call you Joe?" question demonstrated, she was <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/01/07/steve-schmidt-palin-debat_n_415391.html" target="_hplink">having trouble nailing his last name</a>. She still messed it up once.
