I still need to finish wrapping up my DNCC coverage over at Utah Amicus, a process that I probably won't get to until after the weekend. I've been home for about six hours now, I'll be leaving again in 12 hours to go to my cabin That's right, I'm taking a vacation to recover from my vacation.
But, I wanted to talk about McCain's VP pick.
He picks someone who has been a Governor for about as long as my nephew has been alive. He can't talk yet. Before that, she was a mayor and city councilwoman for a small town.
He oldest son is named Track.
Fewer people voted for her in 2006 than voted for Salt Lake County Mayor Peter Corroon in 2004. In fact, Ellis Ivory, who lost to Corroon, had more votes than Sarah Palin.
Where has she established any experience to lead? The City she was a mayor of has a population lower tan Heber, Utah. The state that she is (barely) Governor of has a population 2/3 the size of Salt Lake County.
Why is it important that she have an ability to lead? To paraphrase "West Wing," because John McCain could die. Remember, he's a 72-year-old cancer survivor who had years stipped off his life in a POW camp in Vietnam.
Good luck selling this one, folks.
