I have always wondered about this, I mean, shouldn't he have realized not to choose her when they talked?

never. I think they get along even now. Of course if you were to get McCain drunk, he might say something different.

When she did that Katic Couric interview. As did with Herman Cain, it was a self inflicted wound, as knowledge about foreign policy, wasn't good.

The instant she opened her mouth. My dad calls her the Second Coming of Dan Quayle. While I'm glad their loss reduced her to her current role of being the resident troll of American politics, sitting on the sideline and talking s*** about all the players on the field, it could have been worse. She could have been a breath away from the Presidency, and worse, she would have been President of the Senate. And she even displayed in an interview that she had no idea what that job involved.

If McCain would have won, I think that 2012 would have been a huge Democratic landslide. McCain would have been Bush's 3rd term, and as a result, the economy would have still been in free-fall four years later with an unemployment rate in the 20% range.

My father says that the best political cartoon he's ever seen ran on January 20, 1993: the day Clinton took office. It was all the cartoonists standing around a newspaper weeping and crying their eyes out. The headline: DAN QUAYLE LEAVES OFFICE

What's the worst part about being a gay Native-American atheist socialist? The discrimination.

Economic score: -4.9 (moderately leftist)
Social score: -8.87 (far-leftist)

I'd say the Katie Couric interview for sure, with the follow-up of her not being able to name a newspaper that she read to stay informed. That surely was the cherry on top of the cake.

I don't know how true this is or not, but I remember reading that McCain spent so much time focusing on picking Lieberman for VP. After that fell through completely, he only had two days to vet his other choices, which is why they didn't do sufficient background research, etc. on Palin.
