So, Cabana Boy calls me from some mooring in the San Juan Islands last week, having had a few rum drinks with the boys, and says, “I think McCain threw the election.” WTF? Was he drunk or was he right?
I think he was sober!
He went on to explain his theory saying that no one in their right mind would have picked Sarah Palin as a running mate if they truly wanted to win the election. And no one in their right mind would want to inherit this mess of an economy, the war in Iraq, the healthcare crisis, etc.
Who would actually want the job?
A quote from the September 4th, 2008, issue of The Economist magazine:
McCain had met Mrs. Palin only once, for a 15-minute chat at the National Governors’ Association meeting, before summoning her to his ranch for her final interview. The New York Times claims that his team arrived in Alaska only on August 28th, a day before the announcement.
I watched the interview Palin had with Katie Couric and I just sat there with my mouth open, shaking my head in disbelief. See for yourself.
Here’s part of the transcript if you can’t watch the video:
COURIC: You’ve cited Alaska’s proximity to Russia as part of your foreign policy experience. What did you mean by that?
PALIN: That Alaska has a very narrow maritime border between a foreign country, Russia, and on our other side, the land– boundary that we have with– Canada. It– it’s funny that a comment like that was– kind of made to– cari– I don’t know, you know? Reporters–
