Denver - THE country is at war. The economy is in shambles. The Republican Party is weaker than it has been in decades. So whom does John McCain choose as his vice presidential nominee? A former beauty queen turned governor from Alaska.
Think the 47-year-old Barack Obama is too inexperienced to be president? Mr. McCain says the 44-year-old Sarah Palin, who has two years fewer of experience as governor than Mr. Obama has as a senator from Illinois, is up to the job.
Concerned that Americans do not know enough about Mr. Obama, who spent part of his childhood overseas and went to private school in Hawaii? Ms. Palin is a total unknown who also hails from a noncontiguous state, one most people know only from watching Animal Planet. And that state is steeped in corruption and oil money. Its senior senator is under indictment. They try to build bridges to nowhere there. What on earth was Mr. McCain thinking?
Heres what: The only way for him to win this election is to break with the national Republican Party. Mr. McCain needs to recast the party in his own image: anticorruption, pro-reform and fiscally and socially conservative.
In recent weeks, Republican strategists have urged Mr. McCain to run against the Democrats who control Congress. But that isnt enough for Mr. McCain. By picking Ms. Palin, he has signaled that he will campaign against the Republicans in Congress, too.

“The economy is in shambles.”
No, at 3.3 %, only they lying jackasses at the NYT are feelin the pinch of a “shambles” economy.
Die, lying scum, die.
Obama hasn’t been a senator these past 2 years, he’s been a candidate.
The American economy is NOT in shambles.
I remember the presidential term of Jimmy Carter.
THAT was an economy in shambles!
You actually have weiner water in your soup? We only have water with some gravel mixed in for fiber and the occasional roadkill. However dried skunk gets disgusting after a while.
Another NYT reporter try to bail a sinking ship. Where will they all work when the ship goes down?
Biased hit piece as usual.
If this were anyone but an American woman they would be thrilled.
Read the entire article-it’s actually pro-Palin.
McCain doesn’t need experience at the VP, Black Oblack does. This was an amazing pick and PravdABDNC hates her because she’s Pro-Life.

The News Economy is in shambles, have you seen the layoffs in the Stone Age Press??

This is why I no longer read the MSM. The sheer dishonesty is incredible. But hey — if he wants to set himself up for knockout blows by a feather, by all means.
