John McCain’s choice for vice president, Sarah Palin, is an example of the worst kind of political pandering and is a crystal-clear example of McCain’s complete lack of understanding of the women who supported Hillary Clinton.
Palin, governor of Alaska, is under investigation; her previous government experience is, aside from two years as governor, as part-time mayor of a town of 8,000. This just goes to prove Sen. Barack Obama was right — McCain “doesn’t get it.”
Worst of all, in his eagerness to pander to women, McCain leaves our nation open to leadership by someone who is staggeringly unprepared.
His choice, in short, is an insult — not just to women, but to all Americans.
