What must the Republicans think of the average American voter? They must think we are either ignorant or stupid (there’s a difference in my mind) to have nominated a person like Sarah Palin for the vice presidency. I’m sure she is a very nice mom and a good shot from an airplane. But to be next in line for the Oval Office if Senator McCain dies or cannot serve out his term for some reason? They might as well have just come right out and said that they think we are all idiots who are dumb enough to buy into this blatant pandering. You have to wonder too, I think, what the Senator’s decision making process is like. If his staff and advisers did not foresee the uproar over this selection perhaps it’s they who are stupid. How many of them would end up with appointments to responsible positions in a McCain administration where their lack of vision would be affecting our lives.
The Democrats must not allow themselves to be sucked into political verbal shooting gallery where all sights are trained on the Governor of Alaska who may well have been selected only because she, because, because? Because of what?
Her expertise in foreign policy because she can see Russia from her patio or front porch or whatever?
Her state borders Canada?
Her familiarity with defense issues based on her experience commanding the 4,000 member Alaska National Guard in the suppressing the great seal rebellion?
Any reference to lipstick is chancy but they just don’t make enough lipstick to spruce up the Caribou Barbie.
