If the Sarah Palin choice says anything about John McCain, outside of his utter contempt for the American people, it is that he has become a WHOLLY OWNED SUBSIDIARY OF THE RELIGIOUS RIGHT.
This choice means that he has become ' their boy' without hesitation.
If this were about choosing a Republican WOMAN, there were plenty other choices of GOP women.
But, this wasn't about that.
This was about selling out to the Religious Right, because Palin is THEIR GIRL.
John McCain does not have the money of Barack Obama.
Barack Obama has been out organizing McCain in every state that will be fought over in this election. It was announced only a couple of weeks ago that the McCain Campaign was BEGINNING to form a ground game. But, ground games take money. Money McCain doesn't have.
The ground game for the GOP, in the last 2 election cycles, has been done through The Religious Right. He had no way of getting them to come out and work for him.
UNLESS HE CHOSE ONE OF THEIR FOOT SOLDIERS.
In choosing Palin, he is once again, giving into the GOP base.
In choosing Palin, he is in bed, up to his neck, with the Dobsons, the Pat Robertsons, and all the rest of them.
Maverick my ass.
He's even more of a pawn of the Religious Right than Dubya, and I didn't think that was possible.
UPDATE: Think I'm kidding - McCain received SEVEN MILLION IN 24 HOURS AFTER THIS PICK.
WHOLLY OWNED SUBSIDIARY OF THE RELIGIOUS RIGHT
