Sarah Palin and the Republican Convention


John McCain’s choice of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as running mate shows how desperate he is to distract attention from the fact that he is a cranky old man with nothing to offer but more of the same. Palin is a blatant pander for the women’s vote. He must think we have the collective IQ of a Tampax.

So begin Katha Pollit’s comments on Sarah Palin and the Vice Presidency.

And today’s revelations include a pregnant 17 year old unmarried daughter (was this technically statutory rape?) and a the fact that she has finally decided to hire a private attorney to represent her in the troopergate investigations, something she probably should have done a while ago.  Is this a Thomas Eagleton vice-presidential pick in the making?

It never ceases to amaze me that the family values republicans are the ones who are who have sex with minors, have affairs both heterosexual and homosexual, and possibly even killed an intern to cover-up an affair.  On the other hand, the democrats will always have Bill Clinton.

Now although, thank goodness, Gustav was not a bad as he could have been, we are facing two more hurricanes in a week.  Hanna and Irving are approaching.  Will John McCain give his acceptance speech even if a hurricane is hitting Florida?  If John McCain not having to speak a plus or minus?  I don’t know.
