Report: McCain Aides Complain That Palin Is "Clueless"

This can't last. The McCain version of McGovern's Eagleton event...which I thought was the last time anyone had to learn selecting a VP was a serious affair. But, like the Vietnam quagmire, such lessons seem to have too short a half life among politicians.

Check this out:


Radio talk show host Ed Schultz reports:

Capitol Hill sources are telling me that senior McCain people are more than concerned about Palin. The campaign has held a mock debate and a mock press conference; both are being described as "disastrous." One senior McCain aide was quoted as saying, "What are we going to do?" The McCain people want to move this first debate to some later, undetermined date, possibly never. People on the inside are saying the Alaska Governor is "clueless."

On Friday, conservative columnist Kathleen Parker said that after seeing Palin in interviews, she thinks the vice presidential nominee should drop out.

John McCain. What the fuck have you done? You dumb bastard. If you win you inflict this horror on us when your arm breaks off tying your shoe and all your vital shit squirts out the hole on January 30, 2009. If you lose it has to be the biggest reason. While you might have lost the Christofacist branch of your party, had you selected some one more qualified, like your brain, Joe Lieberman, you might have been able to run on actually being a Maverick. But, alas, you have sold your soul to the Christofacists and will burn in hell because of it.

He totally blew it not picking Bobby Jindal, the LA governor. Jindal is, IMO, the most skillful Republican executive on the scene. He is doing a great job dealing with hurricane damage in LA on the state level, and he knows how to throw the fascists a swastika-shaped bone every once and a while. I can just imagine it - Jindal being showcased in a hurricane recovery that is going well, a young minority guy who is actually running things - a populous state, a diverse electorate, slapping ole Katy Coric around gently, joshing it up with Letterman, while McCain does his Washington jaunt, McCain seen as the dude who gave the "colored guy" a chance and did the responsible thing for his country by picking someone who could actually run it if he croaked- hell, he'd be walking all over Obama right now. Instead he's got some pinhead who is too stupid to trust to go on TV with another clown. If she had been the female version of Jindal, this would have worked - instead, she's just another yellow-ribbon waving shithead looking for an abortion clinic to "witness".

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
