McCain’s Astonishing Choice

August 30th, 2008 | Sources: NY Times, Washington Post

So how does Top Gun McCain select Sarah Palin to be his running mate when he’s been pasting the Big O for his lack of foreign policy experience and Palin has yet to even stare down a seal poacher in the Bering Strait? It isn’t obvious from this video (filmed before the announcement), in which Palin appears disinterested in the job.

Who is this person?

Who is this person?

McCain must believe Palin can galvanize the Republican base, a group that thanks in part to his nomination hasn’t been this glum since William F. Buckley made it through puberty. That’s because the other commonly posited explanation for McCain’s selection has to do with Palin’s gender, and that one makes no sense at all.

McCain can’t actually believe that Palin’ll deliver the Disenfranchised Females For Hillary demographic.¬†Palin opposes¬†Hil on just about every position that matters and Hil, in a moment of prescience, had just two days earlier exhorted supporters to vote for the Big O, a man who sees the world pretty much like she does.

The way things played out in Denver, I don’t see McCain making hay out of a gender play.
