John McCain is the worst actor in American politics. It's one of the things I like about him.
I just watched his introduction of his new running mate, Sarah (WTF?) Palin, governor of the Canadian province of Alaska. One of two things is possible: either McCain is suffering from a hemorrhoid flare-up, or this choice was rammed down his throat. Watch him standing next to her as she speaks. Tell me he's a happy camper.
I'm not getting this. I don't know anything about Ms. Palin, but watching them together, listening to her speak, I'm just not getting it. Do they really think she'll bring in Democratic women? Why? Because she's a woman?
I could be totally wrong. But my first instinct is that this feels like a mistake.
Update: Yeah I screwed up the video the first time. Hope this works.
Update 2: Okay, still not not the right tape. If this still doesn't work, screw it, go find your own tape.
