Still One More Letter The SF Chronicle Won't Print
With each passing day, Senator John McCain's choice of running mate, Governor Sarah Palin, proves herself to be spectacularly unqualified to hold high office. The recent Katie Couric interview is just another in a series of blunders and missteps that has bloggers comparing her performance to the infamous non-answer to the question of why many Americans can't find the US on a map, seen by millions on YouTube, that Miss South Carolina gave in the Miss Teen USA 2007 pageant. Senator McCain, after just a week ago proclaiming that our economy is "fundamentally strong," now tells Americans that he is "suspending" his presidential campaign to help solve the looming financial crisis. Curiously, though, his so-called suspension apparently doesn't include discontinuing any televised campaign ads or fundraising activities. When he goes to Washington to try to lead the charge on the bailout bill, negotiations stall and the agreement that had nearly been reached is scuttled.
Is Senator McCain running out of feet in which to shoot himself?
