As I read some of the orgiastic joy about McScum’s selection of Sarah Palin for VP, I keep wanting to offer this caution, so I will–
Remember in 2000, many of us Dems danced the same dance during the campaign. George W. Bush? This guy’s got nothing. He can’t possibly win. He’s unelectable. Nobody could vote for somebody with this little experience. Yada yada yada…
…Um. He won (well, sort of).
The Rovians are evil (and yes, I mean that) but not stupid. They’re very good at laying traps, and Sarah Palin is a clever one.
Be careful, Democrats. We’ve still got work to do.
