* McCain met Sarah Palin only once

Posted by Lew Weinstein on August 31, 2008

Before selecting Gov. Sarah Palin as his Vice President, it seems that John McCain met with her only once, didn’t know a thing about her.

Are you insulted by John McCain’s cavalier approach to choosing the person “a heartbeat away from the oval office?”

I am.

Imagine how other candidates on the short list, qualified women as well as men, must feel.

John McCain doesn’t care what Sarah Palin knows about major domestic and international issues. He doesn’t care if she could be a source of advice and counsel to the President. He doesn’t care whether she would be prepared if the 72 year old President, twice a cancer victim, was unable to fulfill his responsibilities.

Here’s Sarah Palin on Iraq. “I’ve been so focused on state government, I don’t know that much about the war in Iraq.”

She doesn’t know anything about Iraq, and she’s not even interested. Do you think someone who is running for VP should at least show an interest?

Here’s Sarah Palin on abortion. She believes it should be “outlawed” in all circumstances, including rape and incest.

As bad as those positions reflect on Sarah Palin, it’s an even worse reflection on the man who chose her.

John McCain has shown his decision-making irresponsibility; he’s shown that he’s unfit to govern.

All John McCain cares about is getting elected by pandering to the ultra right wing evangelist segment of the Republican party.
