No, not this guy.
The word is that McCain is selecting Sarah Palin, Governor of Alaska, to be his running mate. Here she is:
She was a local politician until 2006, when she was elected Governor.
Given McCain's age, this is the person supposed to be a heartbeat from the Presidency?
And this is why, Landru's pessimism notwithstanding, I remain convinced Obama will win in November. Not because the Democrats are particularly well-organized. But McCain? He's a dopey candidate. He's low on funds, pisses off conservatives, and makes blunders like this one.
Well, at least Gov. Palin isn't pro-choice! Is that what the Republican party is saying? Mitt Romney would be far more qualified (even though he is a sleazeball) and if McCain wanted to pick a female governor, Jodi Rell of Connecticut is far more experienced and well-liked by people of both parties.
But the powers of the GOP won't allow that.
