D'ya think Jerry Springer did the vetting? Really, this Palin crowd will keep the tabloids in barbecued pork rinds, like, forever. And I just can't wait until we get the extended family.
Maddow may be right that the question is whether Palin will make it through the week, but I doubt it. She's a superstar to the base, after all, and if She resigns, the base will tar and feather George McCain. Not gonna happen, IMHO. Such a thing would inscribe on the skies what we already know about George McCain: that his management style is shoot first, ask questions later.
George McCain is a former (apparently not very good) Navy fighter pilot. His personal style, from jettisoning his first wife because a car accident damaged the looker he had married, to bagging heiress Cindy for the cash and the connections, to carpet-bagging Arizona, to this latest beauty pageant, is pure Tailhook. So it shouldn't come as a surprise that George McCain selected Sarah Palin, whose primary qualifications for high office appear to be that she is pretty and has a uterus that she uses for its intended purpose.
We all saw George McCain checking out her rear-end attributes at the, um, unveiling. I'm fairly sure that this (and the girls, of course) were the central focus as Palin ran a thorough Republican vetting gauntlet in a secret location somewhere in Flagstaff a couple of days before the announcement. Guess what. She passed. This makes Sarah Palin in fact the perfect Tailhook Candidate, the pin-up Hockey mom queen with the AK-47. This is female perfection to the Republican mind, and she will have enormous appeal to the Mr. and Mrs. Bubba Brigade. God help us if they turn out to vote.
