Palin Flack Thinks Obama Can Learn a Thing or Two from Mickey Rourke

610x.jpg 610×479 pixels.jpgNicolle Wallace is a Republican operative whose resumé includes working for the Bush White House and handling the early media strategy for Sarah Palin's VP run. She's the lady who decided those Charlie Gibson and Katie Couric interviews were a good idea. There is basically no reason whatsoever to take any advice she gives at this point.

But here she is today, writing for Tina Brown's fledgling Internet concern, the Daily Beast, that President-elect Obama could learn a thing or two from Golden Globe winner and Riptide obsession Mickey Rourke. Rourke thanked his dogs during his acceptance speech this past Sunday, and Wallace was surprised to learn he's a Chihuahua man. From that she deduces that when Obama finally gets his much-buzzed-about puppy, he should, um, pet it and stuff. Because it helped Mickey Rourke. Brilliant!

"Even though you have a million people ready to take responsibilities off your hands, don't hand off Fido. Rub his belly. Let him sleep with the girls. Take him out in the morning and enjoy watching the sun light up the Washington Monument while he does his business. I know it's hard to imagine right now with the entire nation -- Democrats and Republicans -- pulling for you, but trust me on this one. As the enormity of the office you are about to assume sets in next Tuesday, you will appreciate the precious gift of a little dog who knows you."

Is this how you get your credibility back after helping run one of the worse political media strategies in recent history? Simply say basic stuff that no one can really disagree with until everyone forgets your Palin blunders? If you get a dog, make sure to pet it! Eat breakfast every morning! Wave to your constituents! Remember to breathe!
