Is it too early to say "It's all over" ?
There are lots of things that may happen before the November election, but boy, there is a feeling out there that this Palin pick could be a disaster.

How big a deal is this story? Some people are irate; others seem to think it's just fine. I think it makes both Sarah Palin and John McCain look like idiots, but perhaps only for the moment. No doubt today's Oprah moment will pass, but I can't help being nostalgic for the days when you could tell the difference between politics and a soap opera.

Most people still know almost nothing about Palin, but they are making up their minds, and fast. It has been over three days now, and instead of seeing her as a serious candidate, on the trail or giving interviews, we hear about her teenage daughter. This lost time will not be easy to make up. Instead of getting a first impression of a serious candidate talking about the issues, the first impression people are getting of Palin is of a mother who has a lot to deal with… ...
Time is not on our side.
John McCain: "If I've lost Assrocket, I've lost middle America."
OMG... you totally beat me to it Demon! Funny to see him all pissed off about this. Really, I don't think it hurts McCain that much at all. He's not losing by any more than he was losing before.
