McCain’s Big Head Fake

  1. I think the Mccain pick is going to hurt more than help the GOP. Watching her speak today she came off to me as an amateur politician which hurts McCain’s main attack point that Obama isn’t experienced enough.

    While it’s good on paper that McCain picked a woman VP to try to capture Hillary momentum, it’s obvious to most people that he’s pandering, especially when there were 2 or 3 other more qualified women considered. This disingenuous move will damage McCain’s brand that he does what’s right and not what’s popular.

  2. Hmmm, I am not so sure Jason. As we all know politics is increasingly about perception and Palin makes the ticket “look” better. A former beauty queen, loving mum who put an end to pork barrel politics in Alaska. On imagery alone it doesn’t look too bad, much better than a Romney selection.

    In addition this election is so much more about Obama and McCain (the leading candidates) that any vice presidential deficiencies could easily be overlooked. Let’s see what happens, but I think choosing Palin might have been McCain’s smartest decision of the election so far.

  3. Honestly, I really think it came down to her(Palin)hotness. Please don’t take this the wrong way because I know this sounds really shallow, but, if you look at the ’emales in J-Mac’s life you will notice a trend of good looking ladies. Let’s face it his wife looks like a barbie doll from the 50’s. He lives in Arizona, a land well known for the good looking ladies. I swear I saw J-Mac checking her out when they were first seen on stage together. He is just a dirty old man.

    Question is, how mad is J-mac’s wife knowing that a brunet is the true second in command?

  4. It’s interesting to see this a couple of weeks later having witnessed the amount of pitfalls the McCain campaign has experienced since the pick. I still think however, that picking Palin will lock in the right wing conservatives who helped Bush in 2000 and 2004. The ones who were not thrilled about McCain being nominated saying he’s not a “true conservative” (which was a total right wing media trap itself). They might be counting on that aspect, disregarding the iffy democrats. The problem the republicans might have this time around though is the loss of frightened democrats. If they really want this they’d have to scare the shit out of the American people. But with HR 1955 I wouldn’t be surprised if something comes up. Something by law that would keep Bush in place in the event of a new national disaster. Let’s hope not. When I visit the States again I really hope it’s still a democracy. Oy.
