A beautiful, beautiful thing

Even a dyed-in-the-red-wool conservative female columnist thinks selecting Palin as the Republican VP nominee was the Hindenburg of ideas:
"Palin's recent interviews with Charles Gibson, Sean Hannity and now Katie Couric have all revealed an attractive, earnest, confident candidate. Who Is Clearly Out Of Her League.

No one hates saying that more than I do. Like so many women, I've been pulling for Palin, wishing her the best, hoping she will perform brilliantly. I've also noticed that I watch her interviews with the held breath of an anxious parent, my finger poised over the mute button in case it gets too painful. Unfortunately, it often does. My cringe reflex is exhausted.

... Only Palin can save McCain, her party and the country she loves. She can bow out for personal reasons, perhaps because she wants to spend more time with her newborn. No one would criticize a mother who puts her family first.

Do it for your country."

--Kathleen Parker for

I falsely predicted Palin would bow out long ago. Anybody think it might still happen? Maybe McCain can get Ted Nugent to replace her.

This campaign has seriously lost its collective mind. This has become so bizarre, even Hunter S. Thompson is shrugging with confusion in his grave.

Add Ms. Parker to the growing number of voices of concern from the Right for Palin, although not all are calling for her withdrawal.

Swine, I saw that ad this morning. Apparently released before it was announced he would participate in tonights debatee.

But, in the interest of full disclosure (and a thinly veiled cry for help) I'm beginning to believe I'm in need of powerful antipsychotic medication. I keep having this uneasy feeling that all at once the McCain strategy is going to coalesce into some brilliant form leading the GOP to a landslide victory.

I'd vote for Ted. What a guitar player. And anyone who can handle a bow and arrow like he can is someone to be both respected feared. ;-)
