Just Kidding

One thing the selection of Gov. Sarah Palin as John McCain’s running mate tells me is that after eight years of scaring the crap out of the country with Terrorism Alert charts, duct tape, and standing in line at the airport to get patted down by TSA agents, the same people who foisted these ignominies on us are telling us that their next offering includes a vice presidential candidate with no national security experience but plenty of small-town charm. In other words, “we really didn’t mean all of that stuff back then; it was just our way of clinging to power and deflecting any criticism of the nincompoops we’ve managed to get elected.”
