You do the actuary tables, you know there is one out of three chance or more that McCain doesn't survive his first term, and it will be President Palin.

„My thoughts on veganism are that it’s a wonderful thing to do. I just can’t do it. I tried. Casey Affleck and I made a movie in the desert in Argentina like 12 years ago and he’s a vegan and I tried to eat vegan and I lasted like two days. I just, I literally can’t do it. And I know…that might be bad.“
