Palin = Palliative

Posted by quirksalight on August 31, 2008

McCain’s choice for VP is the Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin.
Why pick such an untested candidate? Hmm… maybe b/c the GOP is looking for a palliative?
Female, check. Young, check. Religious, check. Global warming skeptic, check. Hmm… union, check. NRA, check.
They kind of forgot about experience.

The New York Times quoted Scott Reed in the article, “Choice of Palin Is a Bold Move by McCain, With Risks” :
“In a way, McCain has set a trap on the experience argument,” said Scott Reed, who managed Bob Dole’s presidential campaign in 1996, “because if they start picking on her on experience, it’s going to backfire with women.”

Umm…she doesn’t have much experience. She was a mayor of a small town before she started her term as the Governor of Alaska. But the idea that picking on her lack of experience will drive women to the arms of the GOP…. thanks for the pat on the head, GOP. It’s that kind of condescending attitude that drive women AWAY from the GOP.
