I was at first shocked when I heard that former president Carter had reportedly said that John McCain is "milking every possible drop of advantage" from his 5 ½ years as a POW. Then it occurred to me, what would you expect from a man who left 52 of his countrymen as hostages in Iran for 444 days? If he could leave his Iranian embassy staff to face the daily threat of death for over a year then how could you expect him to think being a POW was much of a big deal?
Gov. Sarah Palin as VP? The Maverick hit a grand slam with this pick. He just wrapped up the Evangelical vote with her staunch pro life stand, the female vote with all those fence sitting Hillary voters, and the heterosexual male vote (although I do not suspect that demographic will drop Obama's poll numbers).
Update: Blackfive has a pic of her sitting on my bike. Well, take away that faring up front and it's mine. Do you think she will ride with us next Rolling Thunder? And, have you seen her husband? Not exactly Mr. Mom. Looks like he's fully capable of defending his family.
