McCain obviously wasn’t, and still hasn’t been. The list of those who should be recalled on this basis alone is a long one, and growing with each Manchurian handout to big corporations.

Meanwhile, Fox News will fiddle with Palin while Washington DC burns.

McCain, who would have likely won the election with Tom Ridge as Veep, Sarah Palin was vetted by the RNC to the extent that: she was female, physically attractive, and could claim Governor experience. And if you know old school Republican campaign vetting, that was enough. Never mind that she was as dumb as a brick, believed in all sorts of strange stuff, endorsed a secessionist movement in Alaska, and didn’t represent formal Christian conservative family values very well – she was sexy and Republican and a good response to women voters who the RNC felt were as dumb as Palin in that they would automatically vote for a woman, regardless of party, given Hillary Clinton’s failure to get the Democratic nomination. The fact that she is on Fox News means that she will be speaking to the same bigoted uninformed myopic folks that form Fox News’ viewer base, as well as the Repub party base. Preaching to the choir. Fortunately, there are enough intelligent people out here in the Independent and Democratic camps that will not be watching to make her new job at Fox seem like just another way for her to capitalize on her newfound fame.

The whole time they made him look like a joke. Palin was a joke too. Only it has backfired big time. With little vetting she has found the strength to push on and do a credible job for Mr. McCain and his bid to be President. I have some apologies to make to Mr McCain too.
