Ask yourself this question: If John McCain has a heart attack and dies before he gives his acceptance speech tonight, who would be nominated to take his place at the head of the ticket? Would it be Sarah Palin? If not, why not?
Anyway, I am in the throes of preparing my first class at Boston University tomorrow, so I will fall back on the typical blogger trick of pulling in a "guest" blogger, my pal Marc Cooper, who provides a nice long list of things he never used to believe but now does after Sarah (and Rudy Giuliani before her) opened his eyes to the truth (Marc also provides a nice photo of Sarah sure to appeal to the testosterone set.)
Some choice tidbits:
"Saddam was the leader of Al Qaeda."
"Sarah has had more executive experience than Joe Biden and Barack Obama combined."
"Black men who become president of the Harvard Law Review are effete snobs."
And my personal favorite:
"Capacity to read a pre-canned generic speech written by spinmeisters is a major qualification for national office."
