'Whack Job'?

I despise what Sarah Palin represents. Even more than George W. Bush, she symbolizes the triumph of imagery over substance in American politics. Her candidacy for the vice presidency is a dangerous phenomenon, and if she and John McCain lose, I hope it will be a long, long time before a major party tries again to foist upon the electorate a candidate created as an exercise in marketing.

That being said, this has to stop.

***In convo with Playbook, a top McCain adviser one-ups the priceless “diva” description, calling her “a whack job.”
For good or bad, the McCain campaign selected Sarah Palin as its vice-presidential nominee. The delegates at the GOP convention ratified her nomination. This anonymous sniping and insult hurling is childish. They are actually making me start to feel sorry for Palin, and I can't stand her.

Then again, maybe this is just another prong of the McCain campaign's last-ditch strategy to eak out a win - hoping against hope that a sympathy vote will pull them over the top in a couple of swing states.

It doesn't seem to me that it would work, but it is no more or less deranged than the "socialism" smear they are hurling at Obama.

Panic is never pretty. Here's your proof.
