And if McCain croaks...

...which is not unlikely, given his age, she is going to be the President of the United States?
Permit me to express strong feelings of panic over this potential scenario.

Hillary must be wishing she'd crossed party lines.

Doesn't seem like the smartest strategy to me. Trying to appeal to the jilted Hillary voters and Republican women now seriously fantasizing about Obama, but picking a woman who nobody knows, who governs a place where there are probably more penguins than people. Was this the best choice? Weren't there any other prominent Republican women with more of a profile? This is pathetic.
It just goes to show how out of touch the Republicans are. This is an empty gesture that to them looks like change, or they think they can fool us into thinking it is change. It really isn't and everybody with half a damaged brain cell can see that.
Now, the only way McCain can win is if this country is still held back by racism. This is still a very distinct possibility. However, time will tell if we indeed have come a long way. After all, a Black man is actually running for President. And he has a very good chance of achieving it. Things have changed.

  1. As an unrepentant Republican, I was starting to feel a little proud about the strides the party had taken. That is, until this morning. I am disgusted by McCain's choice. It's wrong, wrong, wrong on so many levels. Well, there's always hope Miss Congeniality will find herself Eagletonned.
