Did They Not Know All of This Stuff?! Why Not...
Sarah Palin. The good times just keep coming, don't they? Did the McCain people really do their research on her as they said they did? If so, were all of the things we're now finding out about her OK with them?: belonging to an Alaska secession movement, pregnant 17 year old daughter (even though they're all into the abstinence only programs...), being for the bridge to nowhere until it was politically expedient to be against it, actually appealing to get millions in earmarked money for Alaska and then pretending to be independent and a reformer...the list goes on and on.
If they didn't research her and would have found a problem with all of these revelations, why didn't they? What did they look at? Did they just look at her anti-abortion stance and pro guns stance and the fact that she's a woman? That doesn't cut it. Not by far.
If you were the presidential nominee, wouldn't you look under every rock and around every corner and in every media outlet and find out the deal on your possible VP nominee? Wouldn't you have done a better job in picking someone than McCain? What does that say about McCain's judgment?
