It just doesn’t stop: McCain stages photo op with Palin boyfriend

Via Talking Points Memo, talk about exploitation. I guess the whole privacy thing was just a little fantasy, as John McCain held a photo op with Levi Johnston, the young man who knocked up Sarah Palin’s minor child. Shameless, I tell you. And now the McCain campaign has staged a…

Q of the day – what’s off limits?

“Children are off limits.” I agree that the Obama campaign needs to steer away from any discussion of a minor child of a candidate. That’s not, however, the same as discussing the hypocrisy of a ticket that promotes abstinence-only education and favors SCOTUS justices that would revisit a woman’s right…

Yes, She Can

Palin can run for Vice-President being a mother of a newborn and the mother of a pregnant daughter. If my mom can take care of both of her parents, a child, hold a job that requires an hour commute each way, pay off her student loans and do so after…

NYT: fundies pushed Palin selection, McCain team left scrambling to vet

The blockbuster story of this Sarah Palin debacle is that John McCain and his team simply didn’t vet this candidate. He only met her once, spoke with her once, and only now is there a GOP team on the ground combing through records to see what other skeletons are in…

Sarah Palin Is Keyser Soze

Sarah Palin was allegedly a part of a secessionist Alaskan party before she became a Republican. She also was so independent of the Alaskan Republican culture of corruption that she ran Ted Stevens’ 527. By this time tomorrow, we’re going to find out she introduced AIDS to the human population…

Why anti-choicers own the Republican Party

Ezra’s eyes were opened to how much Republicans are controlled by anti-choice fanatics. He lists a number of very conservative, more experienced potential Republican V.P. picks that McCain could have gone with, and then says: And so instead we got Sarah Palin. Sometimes I don’t think it’s fully appreciated how…

Oh No You Didn’t

It made no sense for McCain and Palin to travel to Mississippi to get a briefing on the hurricane, or to take a tour – absolutely nobody in the path of the storm needs to be taking time to handhold political candidates for a photo-op. Obama absolutely shouldn’t travel to…

Cindy McCain on Palin: she’s qualified because ‘Alaska is close to Russia’

It’s time for the GOP to fold its tent and go home. Some free advice: do not send Cindy McCain out on the Sunday talk shows to defend Sarah Palin (via Sully): All the Obama campaign needs to do is air this one over and over. How far has the…

How does a McCain/Palin ticket represent limited government for women?

I’m still reeling by the Log Cabin Republicans’ hearty approval of lightweight fundie Sarah Palin. Alaska Governor Sarah Palin can help Sen. McCain win this election by appealing to independent and young voters.  She’s a mainstream Republican who will unite the Party and serve John McCain well as Vice President.…

Palin Roundup

D-Day has what I would call the definitive dissection of McCain’s nomination of Palin for VP: It’s clear that McCain, who has only met Palin a few times, sees the election as an uphill climb and tried to use the pick to command the news cycle with a surprise. Maybe…
