Throw 'em a Fake and a Finagle

John McCain's maneuvers over his veep pick is getting humorous. First its Mitt Romney, St. John's official rumor mill is all over that even though McCain hates Mitt's guts. Then, just joking before, the Chatty Cathys aboard the "Straight Talk Express" were all atwitter that the pick is Tim Pawlenty, a man who couldn't even get reelected in his home state today. But that was so yesterday.

Now the pick is Sarah Palin. Her twenty months experience as governor of Alaska (population 670,000) added to her years a mayor of Wasilla (population 6,000) makes her ideally suited to be a heartbeat away from the presidency.

Its a straight up play for the Hillaryites on the theory that they don't give a shit about politics and only care about the orentation of a candidate's gonads.

from a vantage point here in Alaska, fascinating to hear the unfounded assertions - have yet to hear from an Alaskan observer on NPR - since she's a Republican, someone said she'd cut taxes...we don't have a state income tax, we have lots of petro dollars this year...I suppose the fact that she signed a bipartisan-written bill that stops the state fuel tax for a year (eight cents a gallon for gasoline) might be what is being referred to.

Another Alaskan view point, here -- I shake my head. Maybe McCain is hoping to carry Alaska. A big turn-off for this Alaskan is Palin's creationism tolerant/oriented christianity. But, I don't trust people, in general, who wear their religion on their chest like she does -- gives me the creeps.
