Remember that one time when Sarah Palin invented feminism and shattered all kinds of glass ceilings because pitbull lipstick hockey mom mama grizzly roar also?
To some of us, the clear lesson was: Never put Sarah Palin on your ticket. To others of us (cough Mitt Romney cough), however, the lesson was that from now on, only put an "incredibly boring white guy" on your ticket.

Kelly Ayotte, are being considered:
"I think unfortunately, Palin poisoned the well on that," said one informal Romney adviser, fretting that any woman selected as VP would draw inevitable comparisons to the former Alaska governor. "I would guess if I were inside the Romney mind that they're worried that any woman chosen will be subjected to a higher level of scrutiny."
