Hardly something out of a "Commander in Chief" playbook (if that thing really exists!). The LA Times reports tonight what we all knew in the blogosphere: that the McCain campaign had just a "knee jerk reaction" in the election of Sarah Palin as a VP nominee.
First the appetizer:
"I really hope McCain did his homework," said David Frum, a former speechwriter for President Bush. "I cannot stifle a growing sense of unease that he didn't."
Then the main dish:
"One Republican strategist with close ties to the campaign described the candidate's closest supporters as "keeping their fingers crossed" in hopes that additional information does not force McCain to revisit the decision."
Now the dessert:
"McCain team used little more than a Google Internet search as part of a rushed effort to review Palin's potential pitfalls."

I feel like the McCain campaign, rushing to publish this diary, but something to point out: some people just does not learn from past mistakes (McGovern anyone?). Very sad, but scary. These people cannot even come close to the White House. I love this country too much to let that happen.
