Phelps Advised McCain on Palin

Dayton, OH--

As McCain made his VP pick known to the world yesterday, there was a person behind the scenes which no one expected. Gold medal Olympian Michael Phelps, according to undisclosed sources, closely advised McCain on his pick of 2-year Alaskan governor Sarah Palin.

According to our sources, McCain was apparently very tepid about choosing Palin. Palin, who has come under criticism for her little experience, lack of foreign policy knowledge, as well as a on-going and serious investigation of her administration was backed by Phelps from the beginning.

Phelps apparently revealed to McCain that it was him, in fact, that put pressure on a state trooper supervisor to fire Palin's ex-brother-in-law. When asked why Phelps said, "Alaska isn't really a part of the U.S". When asked about Palin's inexperience Phelps said, "I've been to Beijing, what other experience do you need?", while fondling his gold medals.

McCain is trying to keep the story hush-hush. Barack Obama, when asked for comment, said he felt betrayed; Phelps apparently wrote his much heralded and historic acceptance speech he delivered Thursday night.
