Sen. John McCain said on Sunday that Mitt Romney's selection of Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan as his running mate reminded him of his own game-changing choice in 2008. Choosing Ryan was "a pretty bold choice," McCain said, just like his pick of Sarah Palin.A "pretty bold choice."
Funny, because just a few short months ago, Romneyland had a plan to be anything but bold. Or anything like McCain:
Mitt Romney and his top aides are building a strategy, partly by design and partly because of circumstance, around what they consider John McCain’s disastrously run campaign in 2008.That Romney chucked the "incredibly boring white guy" strategy for a "bold" (read: desperate) choice—just like McCain made in 2008 when he picked half-time governor and full-time idiot Sarah Palin—tells you that Romney is just as scared now as McCain was in 2008 of having his ass delivered to him by Barack Obama.
The strategy: whatever McCain did, do the opposite.
And he should be. He definitely should be.
