Who would Sarah Palin put on the Supreme Court?
Forget the debate about Sarah Palin's foregn policy / national security experience. It's important, but to a certain degree there is an establishment that can help with that (Pentagon, State Dept.) which provides a sort of base of opinion, and therefore some reassurance.
But remember, this election could determine up to 3 Supreme Court seats. A Supreme Court choice is much more the personal purview of the president. "Who would Sarah Palin put on the Supreme Court?"
is a question that really gets you thinking.
How about Michael Palin formerly of Monty Python's Flying Circus? Or would that be considered nepotism?
As to why McCain selected her, it may have to do with vanity. If he had selected either Ridge, Romney or Pawlenty, the image of McCain with any of them would have made McCain look even older - each of these three guys could be groom models for the tops of wedding cakes. So McCain reverted to the model that make his career - Cindy! No one really notices the age of the geezer when he is with a young babe, as all eyes are on the latter. Alas, Palin may have many "Depends" moments as VP.
Based on the response from the left, it appears that Palin's primary role may be to strip away disaffected Hillary supporters from the Democratic party by inducing cringingly sexist attacks from Democrats.
