My Poli-Sci Breakthrough

The Sarah Palin story borders on the surreal at this point. I mean geez, I took a couple of days over a holiday weekend for some bicycling, barbecuing, canning peaches. And when I got back online, there were so many new wrinkles to the Palin story I couldn't begin to keep them all straight. And if anything, the pace of new and bizarre things just keeps accelerating. And then, of exasperation was born inspiration.
I propose a new unit of measurement, the palin. It can be used to measure political stability and viability.
1 palin = 10 RPD (Revelations per day)
Most politicians would measure their viability in millipalins or micropalins. Anybody who reaches 100 millipalins should actively consider alternate career options.
