Why McCain is unfit to be president

Matthew Yglesias points out why the Palin saga demonstrates McCain is unfit for the job:

Looking at the Sarah Palin debacle, one is reminded that one of the principal powers of the presidency is the power to appoint people — federal judges, ambassadors, cabinet secretaries, subcabinet officials, FEC members, the Amtrak board, all kinds of things. Presidents don’t always put the best people in these positions, but normally they give the matter some thought. Even an unqualified crony gets his job because somebody knew him. Is McCain going to just pick people at random in order to “shake things up?”

Indeed. If McCain makes every decision on the spur of the moment, then many of his decisions will be bad ones. McCain’s character is appropriate for a fighter pilot, not for a president.
