I think I am going to write to Senator McCain and ask him one question: what possessed him to select Sarah Palin to be his running mate. It was a political suicide, and the election shows just that. The press says he did it to appease the more conservative Republicans. However, how would that help him win the general election? They would rather jump off the bridge than vote Democrat regardless of who he chose as his running mate. However, choosing the woman with no experience, no apparent brain function, and very radical views was an immediate turn-off for voters like me, non-partisan, moderate, and leaning Republican. I can tell you, that had he chosen a VP like, say, Chuck Hagel or Colin Powell, I would have voted Republican. But selecting a woman who would be ridiculed even more than President Bush ever was - what was he thinking? Was that a senile moment? I mean, one of the most important jobs of the President is to select the right people for the job. In his choosing Palin for VP, he showed himself severely lacking good judgement in that aspect.
I think I will try to formulate that in a nice, polite way and e-mail him. Maybe I will get a responce... Because I cannot belief no one in the whole campaign told him about the moderates leaving his camp in droves should he choose her.
I swear this is the last piece of election spammage I am going to inflict on your Friends Page.
