First things first

So, you continue to ask yourself why, in a nation of 300 million people, Sarah Palin is the most qualified to take over the office of President should John McCain die in office? If you don't, read no further.

The first thing to note is that "the maverick" didn't make the choice, it was made by a little known, ultra right religious group known as the Council for National Policy and Sarah Palin was handed to McCain on a platter, ready to be their mole, their representative, their tool. Does this call into question the man's loyalties, confidence in his own judgment, independence? Doesn't this illuminate his real concerns, his real agenda? If she was an ideal candidate, it is because she's too ditzy, too inexperienced, too ignorant to make waves: grateful enough for the honor that she won't do anything but serve her purpose which is to oppose abortion, oppose equal rights for people the Council doesn't like and to be the cheerleader for the Christianization of the United States Government.

According to The Nation, it was to this group that W. pledged to appoint only anti-abortion judges in 2000. In 2004, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist told the group that ""The destiny of the nation is on the shoulders of the conservative movement." In 2008, John McCain sold his soul to the same group. In return for his abandoning a leadership position; for his capitulation to the group that has been behind the selling out of America, John McCain will reconcile with the group sworn to overturn the US constitution by foisting a totalally and absurdly underqualified Sarah Palin. No wonder he only saw her twice: his opinion means nothing when it comes to insuring our country's future. He didn't need to interview her, he only needed to follow orders.

A vote for John McCain is a vote for a secret club of Christian supremicists meeting secretly out of sight of reporters and unbeknownst to the general public and with the goal of making this a country governed by their religious convictions - not yours or mine or by the secular constitution that guarantees our religious freedom. Like George W. Bush, McCain is only The Decider in as far as he decides what other people tell him to decide. A man prepared to take an oath to preserve and protect the constitution, yet who has bargained to undermine it in return for political support is in my estimation flirting with treason. If you support this man, you are an enemy of America, an enemy of freedom. You're a dupe, a patsy, a chump and a fool being led around by the promise that your religion will have a special place above that of others. You don't belong here.

Do you think any of them pick their running mate?

I think it's question of degree. I don't think McCain had any choice - or rather was given any choice.

For a "Maverick" he certainly looks like a puppet.

On the other hand, if he did pick her all by himself, it proves he has more allegiance to the evangelicals than he does to the country as a whole.
