Q: What do the following items have in common?
A: They're all impulse buys!
John McCain spent months working his way through the big ol' Washington Wal-Mart of VP Picks and he had his pal Joe Lieberman sitting in his shopping cart playfully dangling his toes out the side. Then he got to the checkout and tossed in Sarah Palin.
And a Snickers.
McCain had met Palin exactly once before last week. He doesn't even know her, people. The man had already decided on a VP and then was railroaded by the Christian right into picking this woman. This is judgment? This is leadership? She wasn't even vetted and he didn't even pick her. Someone else did.
What should we do this week, President McCain? Oh, I don't know. What's that thing? Let's bomb the crap out of it. Consequences? We'll worry about that later.
Those Mentos sure looked good before we ate the whole pack.
