A right wing lunatic who has been governor of a state with fewer people than Columbus, Ohio for less than 2 years. My God if I had a vagina I would be so insulted. That was my first thought.
I mean, Sarah Palin opposes abortion even in cases of rape or incest. Just like Hillary!
Wait. Maybe not just like Hillary. Actually the exact opposite of Hillary. If Sarah Palin were ever in a position where she could exert real political power, unlike, say, governor of Alaska, she would pretty much undo everything Hillary Clinton has spent her life working for. But she does have a vagina, which John McCain thinks is all that matters to you chicks out there. What a cynical, contemptuous, middle finger John McCain just threw to everyone who worked so hard to bring down the good 'ol boy power structure that ruled this country for so long. That was my first thought.
My second thought was that it was a brilliant move. If his only motive was to win an election.
You see, Barack Obama has been running for president for almost 2 years, John McCain since 1999. Meaning that if you don't know who these two are by now, you are by definition a numbnut. That's who the campaigns have to focus on now. Feeble-minded, jelly brained, wishy washy numbnut sheep incapable of making a decision and unaware that Hilary Clinton and Sarah Palin are polar political opposites. People who will cast their vote for president based on things like how long a candidate kisses his wife or how goofy he looks in a wind surfing outfit. There are many more of these sheeple out there than most of us realize, and they hold the fate of our country in their hands between now and November. The first act of pandering to them has been the nomination of the Republican Vice-Presidential candidate.
I'm going to go hide now.
