Sarah thinks twice ... uh, oh!

Gov. Sarah Palin has got quite a job on her hands tonight. She must prove to America that she is not a ditsy fluke who should be dropped from the ticket. Still, given the withering coverage of her clueless interview with Katie Couric, yes, in a way, expectations are down.

But with her knowing Tina Fey is probably going to get huge laughs delivering some of her goofier lines from tonight's debate, verbatim, it has to be making Palin think twice.

If all she can do is come up with how Alaska is the closest state to Russia and lame jokes about Sen. Joe Biden's age, Palin's stock will drop lower than shares of Wachovia Bank.

Then there's this problem: For the Republican nominee for vice president, thinking twice might be once too many. Talk about expectations ... oy vey!
