    McCain wanted him, but Joe is pro-choice.  Picking Sarah Failin pleased the base, energized the party and was an absolutely brilliant move on the part of the GOP.  I don't think SP was McSame's choice, therefore I am not attributing it to him.

    Sarah Palin is just another Karl Rove in lipstick and stilettos.

    •  A brilliant short-term move my the Republicans .. (4+ / 0-)

      ...is turning into a disaster for them as more and more becomes known about Palin. And Lieberman made his bed with McCain. If McCain was the tough, principled maverick that his PR touts him as being, he wouldn't have thrown Lieberman overboard. Lieberman has been around McCain long enough to know there would be a good chance of this. Definitely self-inflicted.

        that's the nature of scorpions. But I still don't think his wounds were self-inflicted.  He might have lain with dogs and woke with fleas, but he did not pick up the fleas and put them on himself.  See the difference?

          ...with it. Lieberman has been doing Dems wrong since Florida in 2000. He heightened his schism before the Iraq War began. He's since ramped it up even higher. Then, finally, he signed on with McCain. The Republican Party rejected him. He has fewer and fewer friends among Democrats. It didn't have to be that way. He put that knife to himself. And now he's paying the price.

        Goodness, the hyper-religious have been infiltrating the republican party for decades now.  They get themselves in positions of power and don't let go.  Most republicans are pro-choice.  However, the wingnuts keep that plank in the platform and dissidents out of the room.

        •  Um, most republicans are anti-choice (0+ / 0-)

          Polling of self-identified Republicans consistently reveals this.  

          How's that degree treating you these days?
