Seriously that is the only thing I can think if that accurately conveys my feelings on John McCain picking Sarah Palin for his runningmate.....WTF.

If you are Mitt Romney and Tim Pawlenty, what are your private thoughts on this selection? You have been on the campaign trail for months being a surrogate for McCain in hopes of getting the VP nod and then at the last moment, you get passed over for someone whose sole qualification for the position is that she is a woman with very conservative ideals. Give me a #$*@ing break.

John McCain's has been pounding on Barack for what McCain perceives as taking a position for the good of getting elected rather than for the good of the country. How could McCain make this pick after making this argument about Obama? There is clearly no other reason to pick Palin other than for the political purpose of getting elected.

Someone close to Bush was quoted as saying something to the effect that what McCain did in picking Palin showed extreme disrespect to the office of the President. I don't think that point can be underscored enough. Another Bush supporter said that dispite what you think of Cheney at least Bush picked someone that would help him govern instead of someone to help him get elected.

I don't know enough about Sarah Palin to know if she is someone that can grow into the job, but I also don't think John McCain knows that about her after meeting her once. This pick really isn't. What it does say is that he is not suited to be President.
