McCain takes a stab at the Hillary vote by tapping Sarah Palin as his VP pick.

My first reaction was, "Who?"

Well... I have no idea how this pick is going to go down. But I have the feeling that she'll get a lot more scrutiny than Joe Biden -- given the fact that McCain is so old.

It was a pretty brazen political gimmick. But a smarter gimmick than I expected. Not that Palin is a particularly good candidate. But she's a hell of a lot better choice than Joe Lieberman, Mitt Romney or Bobby Jindal.

But here's something to hope for: Wouldn't it be great if McCain and Palin got entangled in an affair? Not that would be a presidential first...
