A Wyclef-Palin Joint Ticket Is Not Totally Out of the Realm of Possibility

Sure, it's a long shot, but the first obstacle — presumed mutual self-loathing — has already been cleared. Said Wyclef to WWD: "I am a huge fan of Sarah Palin. Cause she's rad. She's shrewd. She's cool … Anyone should have the right to say, ‘Look I can do the job and this is what qualifies me to do the job.'" Jean did go on to qualify the statement — "I'm not saying she could be the next president, you know" — but close readers will note that he didn't mention anything about Palin's ability to serve as vice-president. And Wyclef already has a whole album about running for president himself. Wyclef-Palin 2012! Crazier things have already happened in this election cycle. (Seriously, just watch this.) [WWD]
