Out of left field literally and figuratively, John McCain's choice for his vice president is the governor of our least populous state, Alaska. Sarah Palin is a 44-year-old "maverick" who just gave birth in April to her fifth child, a boy with Down Syndrome.
What's she going to do when McCain croaks and Iran attacks? Unleash the sled dogs?
This reminds me of when the Republicans put a guy who organized horse shows in charge of FEMA.
Not to mention the choice of the cadaverous Michael Chertoff, a fancy New York lawyer with no experience in law enforcement, who was picked to be the head of Homeland Security.
I can't wait to see how this one plays out. McCain is this close to checking out and his running mate is a soccer mom whose experience in foreign affairs is limited to dealing with a Latina cashier at Wal-Mart.
Somebody tell me this announcement was really an SNL spoof.
PS: Governor Pallin is being investigated for having a state trooper removed from her detail for personal reasons. Tsk. Tsk.
