    I'd go for "Daddy Day Care Worker" because the Palin family already has a "First Dude, named Sarah". :eusa_eh:

    He was cc'd on Palin's government emails, presumably because she relies on his opinion.

    Is that legal, do any of the knowledgeable people here know? I have no reason to think it isn't but the thread I started links an article where it looks like it might not be?

    Those Pentacostal churches Sarah and the First Dude attend, teach their women to be submissive to their husbands. The woman's role, as they see it, is first and foremost to obey and submit to their husband.

    I'm not at all surprised Sarah has the first Dude attending meetings, and giving him a big role in government. In fact, if they are the typical pentacostals, the First Dude probably gets the final say on what she does.

    I don't know about illegal, but it certainly seems relevant whether or not he has undue influence over policy, considering no one ever voted for him. I'm sure anyone in office confides in their spouse, but to have the communication apparently on such a formal basis does seem questionable.

    Remember when everyone was screaming about Hillary being too much in evidence, about "policy?" And then when Laura was the "right kind" of "first" as she "stayed home sweeping the porch?"

    Todd's "place" in all of this is to stay home and be the "house husband, see to the CHILDREN, make them behave," and serve tea to Congressional wives!
