McCain has an odd strategy: publicly nominate the VP candidate, then vet them:
The campaign of John McCain has sent a staff of eight people into Alaska to conduct background checks and vetting on Governor Sarah Palin.Word is they have have eight rooms reserved at a Wasilla hotel.
Vetting someone after you put them on the ticket, part of the change we can all believe in if we elect McSame.
Remember, when you say “supremely irresponsible,” the media says “bold.”
When you say “intemperate gambler,” the media says “maverick.”
When you say “not ready for primetime,” the media says “someone you want to have a beer with.”
Boldness, making a snap decision without thinking it through, is apparently a good quality in a fighter pilot. It’s a less good quality in a national leader.
