It's not Palin that needs to be attacked and ridiculed. It's McCain's judgment that needs to be seriously attacked and ridiculed.
If this isn't proof that McCain = Bush I don't know what is. This is just the sort of thing Bush would do. McCain deserves all the ridicule that he will get. Everyone needs to focus on the message that McCain's judgment is as poor as Bush's judgment. Good lord, Palin isn't even close to being the best qualified conservative to be VP.
