I was prepping for and then in a hearing all day in Dallas today, so I didn't hear until late that McCain had picked Palin.
My first thought was, "Sure, he's funny, but don't you have to be a U.S. citizen?"
I'll be honest. I've got real qualms with some of Obama's economic policy proposals. (I've got real qualms with McCain's economic instincts, which are horrible. But Congress won't be enacting McCain's bad instincts.)
My Obama-qualm just shrank to a little bitty tiny speck.
If McCain is so bent on pandering to demographics, then why not pick Condie Rice -- you know, someone who knows something about something? She might even be able to talk that hothead out of starting a war.
(Sorry for the politics post. This isn't a politics blog, and I don't intend to turn it into one. I don't like the horse race.)
