Twenty years ago Dan Quayle was plucked out of obscurity to solidify the Republican base behind George Bush, Sr.  He was a staunch, eerily conservative VP candidate who appealed to a broad swath of American fundamentalists.

Today, we've been dealt a new Dan Quayle, in lipstick.  Sarah Palin has the same unadaptable fundamentalist stances that appeal to a small but highly mobilized population of our country who are commonly referred to in many circles as 'the crazies'.  

They love her, as they loved Dan Quayle.  They always love people who agree with them.

The difference is, Bush Sr. didn't have to hide behind Dan Quayle. McCain is using his insta-celebrity running mate to dodge the issues and avoid talking about real policy.   It is classic evasive maneuvering, meant to dupe the people.  Don't be fooled.
