Is Sarah Palin ovulating? It's a personal question, but we need to know. Last year, a highly-publicized study of strippers found that dancing girls always earned more during the time of the month when they were most fertile. Simply put, men were more attracted to them for reasons they were not aware of and could not control. With that in mind, ovulation may be part of the reason that Palin charmed a certain segment of American during the debates last night. I mean, check this out:

  • Rollins gave 10 points to Palin on CNN.
  • "Sarah Palin was sensational tonight... she wiped the floor with Joe Biden." -Pat Buchanan on MSNBC
  • "Palin too projects through the screen like crazy. I'm sure I'm not the only male in America who, when Palin dropped her first wink, sat up a little straighter on the couch and said, "Hey, I think she just winked at me." And her smile. By the end, when she clearly knew she was doing well, it was so sparkling it was almost mesmerizing. It sent little starbursts through the screen and ricocheting around the living rooms of America." -Richard Lowry, pundit on National Review's The Corner blog. [via Wonkette]
  • "She delivered big-time... It was the best 90 minutes this campaign has had in two weeks... Whatever expectations there were, she blew them away." -Tom Rath, New Hampshire-based GOP strategist. [Washington Post]

All from (admittedly Republican) men. Coincidence? No, Joe—pheromones, transmitted through the TV. That said, even if men seem to like Palin more than women do, that doesn't mean they'll vote for her McCain. Because, continuing this logic, the same dudes love strippers, but not for marrying.
