Palin, Huh? Random Neural Firings

Well McCain didn't shoot himself in the foot, I suppose. At the very least, he managed to pick an Alaska Republican who's not under indictment yet. That whole pesky influence peddling in the nasty sibling divorce thing is pretty mild in the grand scheme of McCampaign so I suppose he'll be able to gloss it over.

I've already seen the first reference to GILF. That's over the top, perhaps, but damn funny. Picking the beauty queen isn't new for McCain, is it?

Is picking Palin McCain's way of telling all those Hillary voters, once and for all, to go run up an alley and holler, "Fish!?" She believes the polar opposite of just about everything the Senator stands for. If someone is telling him that picking Palin will secure the Gyno-American vote he probably needs better advice.

It's tough to criticize Palin. She seems to be a reformer in a state that needs one. I'm not sure she has coattails for McCain. It's not as if she's going to be carrying the neighboring states for him. (Unless, of course, you count the Canadians she's been schmoozing.) I'm probably not one to ask, though. I still believe that John McCain would be a reckless choice for America. Picking that Monty Python guy won't change my mind there.

Palin's a curious choice, to say the least. Her resume is a little thin, a fact that flies in the face of the McCain campaign's attacks against Obama. Now sure, Palin isn't at the top of the ticket like Obama, but with a 72 year-old at the top of the ticket, she really is a heartbeat away from the presidency if McCain were elected, and that should scare folks, given her lack of experience.
