Stick a Fork in MCain

Remember that nutjob* Ross Perot picked to be his VP running mate back in 1992? In spite of that he still received 19 percent of the vote. Perot proved that people really don't care much about Vice Presidential running mates and they don't have much of an impact. Remember we had a VP that couldn't spell potato(e). He ran for a second term.

What is the first question, and for most the only question, you ask about a Vice Presidential candidate: Is that person capable of being President in the event of an assassination, illness, or untimely death.

Isn't McCain's longevity an issue in this Presidential election? A big and important issue?

McCain is probably hoping to get a hold on women or disgruntled Hillary supporters. So he chooses Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate. Is she the most qualified of all the eligible Republicans in our country? Is she the best qualified Republican woman? Good decision by McCain?

Better choice: Kay Baily Hutchinson or Palin? Carly Fiorina or Palin? Mitt Romney or Palin? Fill in the blank or Palin?

Is Palin qualified? Well let's ask her.

Larry Kudlow of CNBC’s “Kudlow & Co.” asked her about the possibility of becoming McCain's ticket mate. Palin replied: “As for that VP talk all the time, I’ll tell you, I still can’t answer that question until somebody answers for me what is it exactly that the VP does every day?
While watching Palin I thought of a great idea for a television show. An elderly president dies of a heart attack. His young, inexperienced, sorority like VP assumes the role of the Presidency. The country is in turmoil when a war between Iraq and Israel breaks out shortly thereafter.

Who would play the role of Sarah Palin? Think Reese Witherspoon.

Comfortable with Sarah Palin? Not me. Stick a fork in John McCain.
