Oct. 12, 2008 (Reuters) In a stunning move today designed to "open herself up to the press", VP candidate Sarah Palin mooned the entire press entourage that, for some unknown reason, blindly follows her around.
The stunned press corps had no time to take official pictures of the ground-breaking and cheeky event as they were too busy picking their collectives tongues up off the floor.
Here's some reactions from folks around the world:
Tucker Bounds: "Ha! I'd like to see Joe Biden try that!" Tucker then quickly retreated back into the closet.
Hillary Clinton: "Damn, I wish I'dve thought of that."
Sean Hannity: "Now THAT'S Leadership!"
Cindy McCain: "Fat ass, not phat ass."
Tawd Palin: "Which way did Walt go?"
Joe Biden: *We regret to inform you that we cannot print Senator Biden's comment as we would have ran out of ink*
