Just how stupid does John McCain think women voters (and voters in general) are??
The answer: Pretty Damned Stupid
If his choice of Sarah Palin for VP is an attempt to grab Hillary supporters, wow, has he shot wide of the mark.
Most of the Hillary supporters I know are staunch liberals, who won't be suddenly wooed by another set of XX chromosomes, especially when they're dressed in a candidate who has arguably less experience than ANY Senator in Congress, absolutely no foreign policy skills, is slightly right-wing of Bill O'Reilly, and oh, hey, did we mention? She's UNDER INVESTIGATION? What this woman knows about urban issues you could fit in a thimble - her previous job was as a mayor of a town of 8,000 people. (Oh - and that was a part-time job. Well, duh.)
Oh, hey, guess what - she's a creationist!
Look, I didn't support or vote for Hillary Clinton. But this woman doesn't merit being mentioned on the same page as her. Hell, let's make that same BOOK as Hillary.
If he really felt like going for a woman, I understand passing over Carly Fiorino, since her biggest reputation is screwing up companies with which she's associated. Meg Whitman (ex CEO of Ebay) could have pissed off the base since it's rumored she's pro-choice. But sheesh - pick Condi Rice. She wouldn't be my choice, but at least she's got the credentials. At least she's BEEN out of the country - and I don't mean "flew over Canada to get to the continental U.S."
Is Sarah Palin the person we really want, as the expression goes, "one breath from the presidency"?
