Here’s my favorite of the numerous Sarah Palin cartoons found at MSNBC. Each day we find out something new about McCain’s choice for VP that’s more fitting for Entertainment Tonight than a national election. Now McCain tells us he’s sent a team to Alaska to look into Palin’s background in more detail. Shouldn’t have he done that before he thrust her onto the national stage?
Part of me feels bad for Ms. Palin because this feels similar to when Bush nominated his pal, Harriet Miers, for the US Supreme Court when she was clearly out of her league. The choice was such a disaster than even Bush supporters lambasted the selection which lead to Miers withdrawing her nomination.
Could we see the same thing happen with Palin? I personally hope she stays in the race and McCain is forced to deal with the distractions as a consequence of not fully vetting her.
