Is John McCain Nuts!?

McCain has lost it. Selecting Sarah Palin for his vice presidential candidate. It is downright scary.

Mr. McCain will be 72 if he is elected president. Not only that he is an individual who has had cancer several times. Now I surely hope he keeps his health and I don’t wish the worse on anyone, but like insurance agents we should all think – what if the worst case does happen.

Is Palin ready to be president? I think not. She has been the governor of a large, but sparsely populated state for less than two years. Before that she was the mayor of a town of 9,000 persons. Great experience granted, but certainly not enough to qualify her to be president. Foreign policy experience and military experience nil. Oh I forgot she does have a son who is in the military, guess that counts.

Sorry to be cynical, but this is a person who could be a heartbeat away from being President of the United States. Would I feel comfortable if she got a crisis call at three in the morning? No I wouldn’t.

    Hopefully it doesn’t come back to bite him some day.

    Sigh. I meant from Bush’s father.

    Freudian slip!

    He learned this lesson from his father in 1988 — pick a lightweight that will make the right wing base happy as your running mate, ignore said running mate starting the day after the election, and then make sure to have regular checkups and always wear your seatbelt.

    The bottom line question of the electorate should be this,

    Is she prepared to be president? The obvious answer is NO.


  5. Granted, she’s a nut job. But I really don’t think McCain is any better “experience” or “no experience” they’ll both act in the same way, bomb the shit out of anything that doesn’t wave an American flag.

    But Alaska is only 53 miles from Russia! So she must have foreign policy experience! And she’s the commander in chief of the Alaska National Guard, so she has military experience, too! Right? Right?

    Never mind.
