    On the other hand, Mike Huckabee fans and the theocratic wing of the GOP should be pleased. They finally got a full blown theocrat on the national ticket...someone who not only believes in creationism, but wants it taught as a science. Someone who wants to outlaw abortion and is hostile to women's contraceptive choices, someone who doesn't believe in global warming.


    Congratulations to the theocratic wing of the Republican Party - you finally got your dream person on the national ticket. This is almost as good as Huckabee.

    Better than Huckabee, because I don't want to see him nude.

    There you go. She's like, totally ready to lead.

    As to John McCain's judgement:

    This is just insane! They didn't even check her out in depth?

    Andrea Mitchell reported that McCain only ever met with Palin once, before choosing her. I think he's only ever met her once in his life.

    Some vetting process.

    Personally I think he picked her in the middle of the night after Thursday's speech by Obama. He knew Obama had done wonders to unite the Hillary voters and bring them back into the party and his team figured if he picked a woman he could get their votes and if he picked Palin in particular he could also shore up the conservative right.

    All that is coming out about her now is like egg on his face.

    I think this has everything to do with getting the hard right on board. She was introduced on a Friday right after convention. That's a time you do it to cause as little media attention as possible. She will now tour the areas of the country that are Conservative, like in battleground Ohio, where there are lots of Conservative voters, and in Florida's panhandle. The Conservatives do love her, so it is working out that way. Will this turn other voters off? Maybe. I don't want her one heart beat away from the presidency.
