McCain’s desperation move

It’s becoming more obvious by the minute that John McCain’s VP pick is a desperate attempt at appealing to various groups that he’s having trouble with, even if those groups don’t match up.

  • The women who voted for Hillary Clinton, even though Sarah Palin’s politics don’t come close.
  • The religious right, anti-gay, anti-abortion crowd, even though Palin’s veto of a bill resulted in gay state employees receiving married couple benefits.
  • The pro-drilling crowd, although she also enacted a tax increase on oil companies.
  • The blue-collar crowd, although she is in favor of an oil pipeline through Alaska, shipping jobs over the border.

    I’m not sure why it counts as a strike against Palin that she won’t convince Hillary Clinton-supporting women to vote for the McCain ticket. Such women were never going to vote for an (R) in a million years anyway.
