Now it’s the right wing press who’s quibbling about Gov. Palin’s role in this campaign

The byline says “If she is so awful, why did McCain pick her?” Politico’s Roger Simon goes on this way!

John McCain’s campaign is looking for a scapegoat. It is looking for someone to blame if McCain loses on Tuesday.

And it has decided on Sarah Palin.

In recent days, a McCain “adviser” told Dana Bash of CNN: “She is a diva. She takes no advice from anyone.”

Imagine not taking advice from the geniuses at the McCain campaign. What could Palin be thinking?

Also, a “top McCain adviser” told Mike Allen of Politico that Palin is “a whack job.”

Maybe she is. But who chose to put this “whack job” on the ticket? Wasn’t it John McCain? And wasn’t it his first presidential-level decision?

And if you are a 72-year-old presidential candidate, wouldn’t you expect that your running mate’s fitness for high office would come under a little extra scrutiny? And, therefore, wouldn’t you make your selection with care? (To say nothing about caring about the future of the nation?)

Is Sarah Palin “a ferocious wolf”?

Since she is an avowed Evangelical Christian, touts the cause of teaching Creationism, and has a licence to hunt wolves in Alaska, is it possible that Sarah Palin VP candidate on the John McBush ticket fits this quote from the Gospel according to Matthew:

“Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are like ferocious wolves.”
