Hey, I never heard that before! I like it!

James Maxton, to whom this saying is attributed (quot. 1935), was a
British Independent Labour Party MP (1932-46). Denis Healey (see quot.
2002), another British Labour politician, was probably consciously quoting
Maxton.

    Maxton made a brief intervention in the debate to say‥that he did
    not believe it was necessary to pass a resolution for disaffiliation
    [of the ILP from the Labour Party]. He had been told that he could not
    ride two horses. ‘My reply to that is’, he said‥‘that if my
    friend cannot ride two horses—what's he doing in the bloody
    circus?’ [1935 G. Mcallister James Maxton xiv.]

    A producer who ‘can't ride two horses at the same time shouldn't be
    in the circus.’‥Current affairs television should be both serious
    and entertaining. [1979 Daily Telegraph 15 Mar. 15]

    But politics is a practical activity, not an intellectual one. As
    Denis Healey once said, if you can't ride two horses at once, you
    shouldn't be in the bloody circus.

Simply validities my suspicion: nothing new or original out of Palin's mind
or mouth. Thanks for the research (;-)
