Democratic War Room – Post Palin Choice

INT. CONFERENCE ROOM – EVENING

The Democratic War Room. There’s a large table in the middle of the room but no one can stay seated for any length of time. Agitation  and cigarettes are the name of the game. A television news channel drones on softly.

DAN

Palin?

KEVIN

Dan, you’ve said her name nine times and it’s not helping. We need a strategy. 

DAN

I’ve got zip. All my subtle attacks were worked up for Romney, Lieberman and Ridge. I even threw in a wild card attack for Kay Hutchinson. 

STEVE

Personally, I think she’s hot.

SHARON

Tuck it in Steve and let’s stay on point.

DAN

This is crazy. 

SHARON

This is some Rove Crap.

STEVE

They double dipped.

SHARON

They pulled a woman on to the ticket that forces us to dialogue about experience. 

DAN

No way she compares to Obama. Are they serious?

STEVE

Graham is all over Fox with it.

SHARON

Forget her it’s about the top of the ticket.

STEVE

You can’t make a pick like that and think people are going to pay attention to the top of the ticket. She’s got “Trooper Gate”, never been involved in politics outside of Alaska and…

DAN

Steve, check it out…

They all stop and turn their attention towards the television as Dan turns up the volume.

NEWSCASTER

This just in. Republican Vice Presidential Nominee, Sara Palin has announced that her 17-year old, unmarried daughter is five months pregnant. This announcement was made in hopes it would push back internet rumors that her youngest son actually belonged to the same daughter.

STEVE

Wasn’t this on “The Young And The Restless”?

SHARON

Guys… I don’t know about you… but I need lunch.

TO BE CONTINUED… In the GOP War Room.
