McCain’s choice of Sarah Palin as his running mate assures one thing. This fall will be an historic election, one way or the other. But while on the surface, the choice of Palin seems like a Hail Mary pass to disaffected Clinton supporters, I think it more likely it’s a lateral toss to the Christian Right.
It seems unlikely that more than a handful of Clinton supporters will take the bait. They may have wanted a woman in the White House, but I doubt they want this woman. The last thing this country needs is to be led by a pro-gun anti-gay religious fundamentalist/creationist bent on overturning Roe v. Wade.
… oh wait, we already are.
