Jumping the shark

... by restaging "The Birdcage"?

McCain camp prays for Palin teenage shotgun wedding--

The marriage of the vice-presidential candidate’s pregnant teenage daughter could lift a flagging campaign.

Inside John McCain’s campaign the expectation is growing that there will be a popularity boosting pre-election wedding in Alaska between Bristol Palin, 17, and Levi Johnston, 18, her schoolmate and father of her baby. “It would be fantastic,” said a McCain insider. “You would have every TV camera there. The entire country would be watching. It would shut down the race for a week.”

Good gravy. Sad but true. How fucking pathetic.
