Sarah Palin and President Obama share a milkshake


At times our nation seems so divided: conservative vs. liberal, Redskins fans vs. Cowboys fans, Bristol Palin vs. Margaret Cho. It seems there is so little that can bring the warring factions together.

But there is hope. A freckle-faced, redheaded hope.

Archie Andrews. An average American boy living in an average American town. In the December and January comic books, President Obama and former Alaska governor Sarah Palin will descend on the story-book town of Riverdale to help campaign for the student government race at Riverdale High.

This is not the first time Archie has taken on a hot topic. Just last April September, Kevin Keller, the comic's first openly gay character moved to Riverdale. (Ed. note: His move was announced in April, but Keller did not show up until the September comic.)

If the cover image reveals any hints, Palin and Obama's introduction to Riverdale is just as happy as Keller's was. The two politicians find a way to put aside their differences to indulge in that great American pastime of sharing a chocolate milkshake.

It seems there are no rivalries at Pop Tate's Chocklit Shoppe. Aside from Veronica and Betty's, of course.

Was it Cool-Aid?

If that would ever happen it would be because President Obama was a probation officer and Palin was a juvenile delinquent!!
