John McCain, a man to be trusted? If I was going to war he'd be the last man I'd want watching my back after reading that account of events. And please don't come back with the retort that it's all lies made up by the liberal media. In a society as litigious as the USA, Rolling Stone would already have had its butt dragged into court and the McCain camp screaming libel.
Back in 2004 when Bush got re-elected I had a momentary lapse and started thinking Americans were stupid, not a little stupid, but really stupid - 4 more years of a Bush administration - how could they. Then I thought, no, a nation can't be stupid and I re-evaluated my thoughts. Well, I know several really cool, intelligent Americans, (though funnily enough they all live overseas...) so why wouldn't I.
But, if the unthinkable happens on Tuesday then I really will think that nation America is just dumb, because McCain/Palin really is an un-electable ticket, anywhere in the world.
A maverick is the last thing America (or indeed the world) needs right now, and Palin is the second last thing it needs in the 'hot seat' (potentially). She just ISN'T (Vice) Presidential in any shape or form, no matter which way you want to cut it (well given a big enough budget she might have the aesthetics).
I mean, just play with images in your head for a while of Sarah Palin in any situation that requires intelligence, calmness, contemplation or comprehension and you end up running a comedy (or horror story for that matter).
And yes Justin, I really think there will be mayhem, the likes we haven't seen - both legally and sadly, violently.
