McCain's Choice

John McCain's pick for VP, if you haven't heard, is Alaskan Senator Sarah Palin.

Seeing as McCain and the GOP are really REALLY trying to get the idea across that Barack Obama is inexperienced, McCain's choice seems extremely hyprocritical as both of them haven't spent a lot of time in "the game". Obama is a first term senator, and Palin is a first term governor of Alaska. Both Obama and Palin are about the same age. Not only does it seem hypocritical to me, it seems to be blatant pandering to frustrated voters who REALLY REALLY wanted Hillary to get the nod. It also seems a way to go "Well, if you vote for me, we can make history too as she'd be the first woman vice president!". It doesn't seem to be a choice based on what's best for the nation, who would be the most qualified for the job, but instead, solely, what could capture the most votes.

Someone on a Star Trek discussion forum gave McCain "props" for "thinking for himself and not just going along with what his advisors and consultants say". Independent thinking is good, but... I wish I was drinking coffee at that moment so I could spit it all over the computer I was using. Are we really going to give someone props for disregarding advice given to him who obviously know enough of what they are talking about to get hired in the first place? Is this "go it alone" policy really a GOOD thing? Oh yeah, this advice is sounds and logical, but I am going to do whatever I want because I am the guy running for office. Everyone else can screw themselves.

Republicans acting Hypocritical? Tell me something new.
