I Can Dig It
Grand Slam Home Run, John McCain.
Here's the thing. With this pick, John McCain got Rush Limbaugh and James Dobson on board. No Republican is going to win without the support of conservatives. But that's not all. Earlier many comments were made on a Hillary Clinton forum regarding how they would vote for McCain/Palin over Obama. It's been taken down now, but you can see some of those remarks here. That's the other reason why this pick is a grand slam. Happy Birthday, Senator McCain.
UPDATE: Best lines I've seen all day. From Baseball Crank, "Now we know what John McCain wanted for his birthday--Barack Obama's news cycle!" From Confederate Yankee, "Dick Cheney hunts birds; Sarah Palin hunts moose. When she shoots a lawyer, he'll stay down!"
