McCain’s Sad Judgement

September 8, 2008

You can say a lot about McCain’s choice of Palin and all the problems she has with ethics and lying, but really it comes down to a simple question:

Is Palin really the best person McCain could find for the job?

She isn’t, which is evidence enough of McCain’s problematic judgement. We know that McCain’s reasons for this “affirmative action” selection is that the religious right base just wasn’t interested in supporting him, so this selection was an attempt to mobilize them, which it has. Yet, if religious conservatives looked at her critically, they would realize she’s not even the best religious candidate.

Oh, and I find this funny: if Palin has more executive experience than Obama and Biden combined, then she also has more executive experience than John McCain.

  1. McCain and Palin are good, decent people.
    So are Obama and Biden.
    There is, though one glaring difference.
    McCain/Palin want to continue the Iraq war.
    Obama/Biden want to end it.

    I want to discuss something Republicans REALLY love: Money.

    Estimates are that just under 100,000 people have been killed in Iraq.
    (http://www.iraqbodycount.org/)

    Cost estimate: $3 TRILLION final, $1 TRILLION spend so far
    (http://www.csmonitor.com/2008/0310/p16s01-wmgn.html)

    COST TO US: between $10 and $30 million per terrorist!

    Ya know, I just don’t think we’re getting our money’s worth, Aye?!!
    Do you? I say we END THIS WAR!

    Hey, McCain isn’t questioning executive experience…that was an Obama dig at Palin and McCain is just digging back!
    One of the biggest problems our country faces is corruption…she’s the best person for the job of holding accountable the old cronies. And listen, if McCain had to pick her to trump the media elitists, then I say, he has the judgement it takes to win and right now that is all that matters as long as the candidate is qualified and Palin is! Look…you can choose Mr. or Mrs. Wonderfully Experienced Person and it doesn’t matter if they don’t get media attention…they don’t get elected…end of story!

    Northstar,

    Corruption is a problem, and both parties are guilty. But if you look at the individuals involved in this presidential race, the Republican ticket has the overwhelming ethics problems.

    Consider McCain and the Keating Five. Then, there’s McCain’s refusal to investigate Ralph Reed, who was part of the Abramoff scandal and now is part of the McCain campaign.

    As for Palin being the best person to hold cronies in check, I’m afraid that the facts just don’t support that.

    She has abused her power as governor and mayor.

    She lies when she says she opposed the bridge to nowhere.

    She’s a queen of earmarks, who even earned McCain’s criticism a while back.

    She headed a 527 for Ted Stevens, one of those Republican crooks she supposedly opposed.

    It seems that the difference between a corrupt politician and this particular hockey mom is lipstick.

    According to http://deligentia.wordpress.com/2009/11/18/enabling-lies-the-palin-factor/, Palin’s lie about not quitting her job also involves misappropriating hunting language that really doesn’t apply. I agree. I wonder how many people will call her on it?
