McCain, You Crafty Bastard!


Either John McCain is more clever than I thought, or his advisers are, but he just announced that his running mate will be Alaska governor Sarah Palin. I've never heard of her, but her record seems to be one of political reform. She's young, only 44, and an experienced mayor then governor. Ladies and Gentlemen, I believe we now have a race on our hands. This should be interesting since Palin may now give all the disaffected former Hillary supporters a reason to not support Obama. If I may indulge in a wee bit of prognostication, it's about to get bloody out there.

Ohboyohboyohboyohboyohboyohboyohboyohboyohboyohboyohboy!!

I know! This is so exciting. I cannot wait til Mr. Monkey comes home tonight so I can talk his ears off on my impressions of this!

My impression: I don't trust the republicans, male or female. And should we think the Rep. party expects McCain to die in office? Otherwise it's still an old man running. Marius, you didn't hear Hilary's speech, but she basically asked her supporters if they were in it for the issues or for her, & shame on you if your support is only because of the sex of the candidate. Just seems like a sleazy trick to me.

Oh, I agree, Rose. But there are still far too many former Hillary supporters who are so pissed that they may fall for it. I'm not happy that McCain now has more than a snowball's chance in a blast furnace, but at least the next couple of months should be...interesting. Plus one of the worst things Barack could do now is be complacent. This should put a little more fire under the Democrats.

See, I think he just cut his own throat. I think he has badly miscalculated if he thinks Hillary supporters will blindly vote for any woman who happens to be on the ticket, even one who (at least based on the little I know about her) is so woefully unqualified for the job. In other words, I am delighted with this turn of events.
