In the polls obama was favored,

then Mccain picks a woman that of course is filled with controversy.
I think that if she was a man. Then the republican party wouldn't get as much press as it would get now.

What does Palin bring to the table?

That Biden doesn't? (that he isn't a female?)

I think McCain's VP pick was an exercise in cynicism. He knows that there are what, 18 million Hillary voters out here. He figured he could dip his bread in that gravy while it was still hot. How many women will fall for it? That's my question.

There is always a strategy to the pick. Do you think Biden was picked because of how he an Obama agree on all the issues or because they're such good friends?

Palin, it is coming out, was hardly vetted. Met McCain once or twice and had the same number of telephone conversations with him. While I contend that Obama's strong suit is anything but his experience, he has worked with Biden in the Senate at least, and I do think they agree on most issues. I don't think McCain even knows enough about Palin's stands to know if he agrees with her or not. As much as some may believe in John McCain, I just think it's hard to defend his VP pick. The guy's in his 70's! At this most urgent time in history, we will all be just fine with Sarah Palin doing all our thinking for us? In America, the hands down innovator of state-of-the-art thinking?

He was picked because Biden was reputable, and because he is actually skilled people don't want to hear that.

They want to hear the propoganda of Milf Republican

John had Sarah in his sites for long before Hilldabeast lost the election. He picked her because she is everything we are all now learning she is. The fact that she is a woman was just iceing on the cake.
It's one more example of the briallince of John MCain

Not true. They started vetting her in May when Arthur Culvahouse, the head of McCain's VP search, went to meet with her in Alaska.

Don't believe it. In fact, the one who wasn't sufficiently vetted was Obama.
