McCain Picks Fly Weight Sarah Palin

In the fly weight department, it takes one to select one. Does that doddering old war monger and superannuated napalm dropper really think that disgruntled Hillary supporters and “independents” will go for an anti-feminist (= anti-abortion) beauty queen, who could be mistaken for a late night cable news anchor, and whose “experience” consists in being the mayor of a town with fewer than 10,000 people, Wasilla, Alaska, and then a governor of that distant state (pop. = approx. 670,000) for less than two years? Evidently, the man is either desperate or nuts or both.

The choice of a right-wing “hockey mom” is surreal, but not nearly as surreal as the prattling of the spinmeisters who claim McCain “hit a home run” with this choice. Please, Biden, when you debate her, nail her good, but don’t come off like you did with Anita Hill! McCain doesn’t need the white bread sympathy vote.

What could geezer McCain have been thinking? Who knows! The only sure thing is that, in less than 24 hours, John McCain succeeded in moving discussions of the impending election from the (meretriciously) sublime in the aftermath of Obama’s acceptance speech, to the outright ridiculous.
