President Sarah Palin?

John McCain is old. Being president is tough. If he is to fall over, he’s picked a real experienced backstop to have her finger on the button: Sarah Palin, Governor of Alaska.

All I can say, is Joe Biden just got an easy debate schedule.

John McCain’s central and best argument in this campaign is that Barack Obama simply lacks the experience to be President of the United States. And now John McCain, who is a cancer survivor who turns 72 years old today, is picking a vice presidential nominee who has been governor of a small state for less than two years and prior to that was mayor of a town with roughly one-thirtieth of the citizens that Barack Obama represented when he was a state senator in Illinois.

Whatever you think of Barack Obama’s qualifications to be Vice Presidential, Palin is manifestly less qualified

Talking Points Memo.

I respect John McCain for a lot of things, but, considering he could have picked a high-powered woman from business like E-bay’s Meg Whitman or the former CEO of HP, Carly Fiorina, I have to wonder- what’s he been smoking? Sarah admits she’s smoked pot and inhaled. Lordy, how times have changed!

And, most significantly- McCain is speaking in Dayton Ohio today to make the announcement- at the Nutter Center. McCain picks one of Forbes 10 fastest dying cities to make the death of his campaign official and lightning quick. Do they get do-overs on vice presidential picks?
