Just goes to show you, the polls rule the politics, the tale wags the dog. With questionable backing from women who might be deluded enough to vote for a candidate from the Grand Old [white, male, middle-aged] Patrician party, John McCain has thrown out a desperate left jab, choosing as his running mate a completely inexperienced (two years as the Alaska state governor--golly, that's somethin'!), political lightweight in Sarah Palin.
If you stack Palin, who is charming, young, and enormously popular in her home state (she decries a woman's right to choose abortion, and is an avid hunter--kind of an Annie Oakley with a little more responsibility) up against Delaware Senator Joe Biden, with his 20-some years of experience in the Senate, with missions to countries all over the globe, as the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, it's like putting Evander Holyfield in the ring with PeeWee Herman--ludicrous at best. And there goes McCain's chance to bray on and on about his own experience versus Obama. Kinda pandering to the undecided soccer moms nationwide, huh? Desperate tactics, to say the least.
For McCain to have chosen Palin is also demeaning to the likes of Hillary Clinton—as though any token woman would do for an office mere steps from the presidency. Pathetically bad decision-making ability on the part of McCain, in bold type for the world to see. All I can truly say is this will be a feast for the Left and I am looking forward to the carnage.
