This is just bad comedy. I'm reminded of those seemingly endless string of Soviet Premiers who came before Gorbechev during the Reagan years. Withered old men who died one after another. It was pretty obvious to everyone in the world the Soviets were propping up a broken nation. Kind of like the fake town from Blazing Saddles.
Yeah, that's exactly what Sarah Palin has become. She's the fake town from Blazing Saddles. Maybe the Bush people who run McCain's campaign should build a toll bridge. Hah!
P.S. - Notice another one of those obvious questions staring you in the face here? Why does the media go along with this? Palin is obviously a farce. The reporters will never be allowed a chance to ask her a single unscripted question. Now her "photo ops" will be limited to a few seconds. So McCain doesn't want you media types covering Palin. So what? Why not just ignore them?
