Sarah Palin pick = gimmick:

Andrew Sullivan:
... this struck me as a desperate and possibly disastrous ploy for the McCain campaign, a self-evident gimmick, driven by the demands of campaigning, not the duty of governing."
Anonymous Liberal:
... I have a feeling this pick may come across as very "gimmicky" to a lot voters.
Charles Homans (at the Washington Monthly):
... the Palin choice does have a gimmicky quality to it ...
AMERICAblog:
This is a gimmick -- a pure political gimmick.
Chuck Todd:
This could look like a gimmick.       It's gimmicky, and the gimmick could wear out."

If I remember correctly, "The Contract with America" was a gimmick, too.
