Although it defies all logic and common sense, the McCain campaign continued to paint Sarah Palin as more experienced and qualified to be president than Barack Obama. What is laughable is that the McCain campaign thinks that people are stupid enough to buy the argument that Palin is even remotely qualified to be on this ticket.
Contrary to cable news network reports, Sarah Palin's name has been floating around for weeks as a dark horse running mate possibility. The upside is that she brings youth, gender, and conservative credentials to the ticket. The downside is that this pick was based on a political calculation that if it backfires will doom his campaign.
