Ten random things: July 7

Ten executive agencies that will be part of the Cabinet of (God forbid) President Sarah Palin:

  1. Department of Drillin' For Oil
  2. Department of Places to Live
  3. Department of Learnin'
  4. Department of Fightin'
  5. Department of Money
  6. Department of Law
  7. Department of Gettin' Places
  8. Department of Stuff That's Outdoors
  9. Department of Workin'
  10. Department of Growin' Stuff

Inspired by the following quote from the soon to be ex-governor of Alaska and possible candidate for the 2012 Republican Presidential nomination, as reported by ABC News:

     But as for whether another pursuit of national office, as she did less than a year ago when she joined Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., in the race for the White House, would result in the same political blood sport, Palin said there is a difference between the White House and what she has experienced in Alaska. If she were in the White House, she said, the "department of law" would protect her from baseless ethical allegations.

    "I think on a national level, your department of law there in the White House would look at some of the things that we've been charged with and automatically throw them out," she said.

In her defense, in Alaska it is called the Department of Law, and she probably does genuinely believe that it's part of their job to automatically throw out some of the things she's been charged with. But still.
