"Biggest political gamble I believe just about in American political history...that is not hyberbole. I can think of no choice of VP that approaches this"
- Pat Buchanan, August 29, 2008
Mitt Romney? Tom Ridge? Lindsay Graham? Rudy? Tim Pawlenty? Mike Huckabee? Kay Baily Hutchinson? Condi Rice? Charlie Crist?
Noooo!!! Nope, John McCain believes Sarah Palin is the best and most qualified person in the Republican party to take his place if he kicks off (he is kinda old). President Sarah Palin.
John McCain is an unacceptable and dangerous candidate for the office of President. And he has now proven himself to be the unstable and unintelligent doofus we feared he was.
This race is over, and it will be a historic landslide. Unless Palin pulls a Harriet Miers and withdraws in the next few hours or days (which I think is likely). Or the GOP pulls its head out of its ass and gets McCain to withdraw, and a viable candiate runs in his place.
The GOP die-hards must be reeling today.
Picture the Biden - Palin debate (if it happens). Poor girl. Seriously, poor girl. Getting her ready in a few weeks will be impossible. "OK, Sarah, there's a country called Georgia. And there's another country called Kazakhstan... And now let's get you up to speed on organizations. There's one called the UN. There's another one called the EU..."
