Sarah Palin, as McCain’s VP Pick, Probably Means That McCain Will Win the Election

I’ve thought all along that Barack Obama needed to pick a woman for his VP.

But the fact that he didn’t choose a woman for VP is now probably going to prove to be a decisive mistake.

Palin now makes both tickets, whichever one wins, “historic” in the sense that we will have, in January of 2009, either a female vice-president or an African American president.

Also, people who wanted to vote for McCain, but might have felt ambivalent about resisting a historic moment by not voting for Obama, can now feel “progressive,” and not “reactionary,” by voting for McCain-Palin.

NOTE TO READER: The above post represented my impression, on first hearing the news of Sarah Palin’s pick. I assumed that McCain would have picked a moderate, fully vetted person for VP.

Very quickly, however, my opinion changed. See my more considered take on Palin here: https://santitafarella.wordpress.com/2008/08/30/fatal-attraction-with-vp-pick-sarah-palin-john-mccain-wrecks-his-moderate-brand-and-reminds-voters-hes-old/ .

    You have to admit that Sarah Palin is pretty hot (remember she was in the Ms. Alaska Pageant) and MUCH BETTER on the eyes than Joe Biden. Oh and wait until you see the bikini pics!!! NOT BAD for a mother of 5.

    That is the most idiotic thing to base a vote on that I’ve ever heard.
