It's truly sad to see McCain put politics and his own career over America.
It's come out now that McCain made a rushed, desperate choice with Palin. Do something dramatic or lose for sure, he was told. Well, he'll lose for sure still. Even when she drops out and is replaced by Hutchinson, Romney or Pawlenty.
John McCain has been exposed as a reckless, dangerous, hot-headed fool. He is an unacceptable candidate for President.
Come on GOP. Give us someone else. Throw this nut overboard. Palin will take care of herself. But the rot in your party is at the top. Just like it was these past eight years.

Perhaps more important, several Republicans said, Mr. McCain was getting advice that if he did not do something to shake up the race, his campaign would be stuck on a potentially losing trajectory.
With time running out — and as Mr. McCain discarded two safer choices, Gov. Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota and former Gov. Mitt Romney of Massachusetts, as too predictable — he turned to Ms. Palin. He had his first face-to-face interview with her on Thursday and offered her the job moments later.
“They didn’t seriously consider her until four or five days from the time she was picked, before she was asked, maybe the Thursday or Friday before,” said a Republican close to the campaign. “This was really kind of rushed at the end, because John didn’t get what he wanted. He wanted to do Joe or Ridge.”
