McCain Seems McDesperate

The Republicans stole media attention from the Dems in the wake of Barack’s brilliant speech to accept his party’s nomination.

But is it newsworthy b/c McCain’s choice of Palin for VP is so profoundly intelligent or shockingly stupid?

I would argue the latter. Moreover, it’s pretty insulting to women to think that Republicans can get their vote simply b/c they have a female candidate on the ticket (who, by the way, is ridiculously conservative and against women’s rights!). In fact, there was a good op-ed piece in the Times from Gail Collins. She writes:

“The idea that women are going to race off to vote for any candidate with the same internal plumbing is both offensive and historically wrong.”
