Even the McCain campaign itself has a hard time defending their pick with anything but empty rhetoric. These kinds of mistakes aren't the most important thing in the world, but it is frustrating to live in La-La-Land where instead of just answering the questions honestly, owning up to mistakes and then moving on in a new direction, everyone instead spends all this time trying to deny that a mistake ever happened so we get stuck in this stupid news cycle and can't move beyond it to get to the real meaty questions of the day. Please stop pretending that this pick was anything but policial, and that this political decision undercuts your political message of the last few months that our decision on who to vote for should be based on nothing more than who has more military experience. Trying to make it sound like Palin has all this experience that any rational person can tell she doesn't have not only makes you (Tucker) look like an idiot, it also makes Palin look bad because you are trying to cover something up. Stop pretending, and let her be proud of the things she really has to be proud of. In other words, let her stand on her own merits, instead of the phony rhetoric your campaign wants to spin. The American public isn't as stupid as you apparently think, and we can tell the difference.
