Why the Palin pick is still demoralising

She doesn't believe that human activities are causing global warming, she believes creationism should be taught in science classes and she has no pre-existing interest whatsoever in foreign affairs. That's just for starters. This nomination seems like a continuation of the glorification of incuriosity and trumpeting of faith over reason that started with Bush II.

I agree with your assessment that choosing Palin was a really brilliant move on McCain's part. I'm afraid her terrible opinions will actually matter very little: I'm not aware that elections are ever a rational process? :) Looking at tv here, she's playing the "democrats are uncaring elitists" card pretty well.

btw, about the oil: her husband works for BP apparently.
