Obama supporters might want to put your "Palin is McCain's last coffin nail" celebration on hold. Liberal/progressive/Democratic-leaning blogs had exploded with glee, hailing John McCain's choice of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his Vice President to be the worst political move since Michael Dukakis decided that driving a tank looked presidential and that she would more likely replace Tina Fey on 30 Rock than Dick Cheney at 1600 Pennsylvania.

Arianna Huffington called the move "clearly a Hail Mary pass," suggesting "Maybe an anxious nation can offer John McCain a do-over." Jewish Journal editor, Rob Eshman, advanced the thought that her support for Pat Buchanan's Presidential run could alienate Jewish voters and "cause 'Israel First' Jews, who seemed to be pretty much done with Obama, to take a second look." Even noted blogger and incessant, self-promoting author/satirist/TV writer/columnist, Steve Young, wrote facetiously of the seeming attempt to attract the female vote, "I can just see the deluge of anti-science, anti-women right to choose, anti-gay, anti-environmental Hillary supporters lining up for this one."

Albeit the Democrat's delight, the majority of Americans aren't making plans for the Obama inauguration. In fact, it seems the immediate reaction to the Palin pick has more Americans believing Palin is ready to be president than not.

That's not an Onion headline, folks. Not even That was READ THE REST OF THE "YOU GOTTA BE KIDDIN, BUT I'M NOT" STORY" "HERE
