    Yes, McCain was a dickhead for choosing someone clearly unqualified for the second highest office in the land.

    Yes, his staff were dickheads for not threatening to quit en masse if he insisted on keeping her on as his running mate.

    Yes, everyone who voted for McCain (and therefore Palin) was being an irresponsible jackass for bringing her THATCLOSE to holding our fate in her hands for 4 years.

    However, SHE does deserve a big chunk of the blame as well, for ACCEPTING the offer in the first place, and for not dropping out.

    I'm a pretty smart guy with solid progressive values, but there's no way in hell that I'd be qualified to be Vice President of the United States (and sure as hell not POTUS itself). If Obama were to ask me to be his running mate (God knows why), I'd have enough patriotism and respect for my fellow man to not just politely say "No thanks", but "HELL No".

    Of course, at that point I'd have to start questioning Obama's sanity for asking me in the first place...
