Okay, let me get this straight: the McCain campaign has been hammering away at Senator Obama’s lack of experience and youth and then he picks a 2-year governor of a state with fewer constituents than Obama’s Senatorial district who is 44? And she was a runner-up at the Miss Alaska Beauty Pageant? And who was “Miss Wasilla”? And who posed for a fashion spread in Vogue magazine? And who is under investigation for ethics violations? And who just had a baby four months ago, one with Down’s Syndrome? And who disagrees with McCain on drilling in ANWR? And who was a sportscaster? And who is married to a man who works for a Big Oil company?
Really? THAT’S McCain’s pick?

Saturday Night Live might have to bring back Tiny Fey for a few skits, I’m thinkin’…
UPDATE: Just saw this awesome quote over on Ben Smith’s Politico Blog:
“At least John McCain is consistent. He picked another young woman to advance his political career.”
I’m just sayin’…
