Something Someone Else Said

"I think she's the most qualified of anyone recently who has run for vice president to tell you the truth." -John McCain, who's first choice for his vice-presidential nominee was Joe Lieberman, who ran as the Democratic nominee eight years ago

Maybe I don't understand politics, but I think this race would be a nailbiter if his running mate was Lieberman. Would his "base" have really abstained from voting and virtually handed the election to their mortal enemies? Somehow I doubt it.

Never underestimate the prejudice of Christian Republicans towards Jewish Democrats; trust me: someone with a much deeper understanding of demographics than myself ran these numbers and decided that Palin was the better bet, against McCain's first choice. I feel like I understand politics at least well enough to make a definitive statement such as that.
