  •  Stunt casting that just might save McCain (0+ / 0-)

    Pure electoral gimmick, but: Palin (and her down syndrome baby boy) are the wedge issue that could keep conservative white working class and catholic voters from voting for Obama. They will play up abortion and "infanticide" in major ways, taking Palin's youngest child as a prop and trying to garner support from Catholic bishops. In other words: She is there to neutralize whatever positive effect Biden could have had for Obama. Picking her is a deeply cynical, but ptentially very effective move. I don't think that John McCain had much to do with it. As we know, McCain does not speak for the McCain campaign.
