Sarah Palin - The World's Most Dangerous Flutist?
The most popular woman in America right now - Sarah Palin, John McCain's vice presidential running mate - is a talented flutist!
Yes, that's right! The controversial gun-loving, environment-destroying, right-wing pin-up who charmed the hearts of middle-America and fascinated the world, has at least one hidden talent - the flute!

Although she wasn't going to major in music in college, her talent with playing the flute helped secure her college degree.
