I have a theory that the choice of Governor Sarah Palin as the GOP nominee for vice president is a sign that John McCain has quite a fantasy developing about how his presidency would unfold.
He is an elder statesman, living the relaxed life of a Bush-style president, and who wouldn’t want a vice president who is easy on the eyes… Really, who would want to look at Joe Lieberman every day? br-r-r-r-r.
Then the New York Times reports this:
“She’s going to learn national security at the foot of the master for the next four years, and most doctors think that he’ll be around at least that long,” said Charlie Black, one of Mr. McCain’s top advisers, making light of concerns about Mr. McCain’s health, which Mr. McCain’s doctors reported as excellent in May.
9 out of 10 doctors agree that John McCain is a dirty old man!
Then Ken Layne reminds me that Palin is a former beauty queen, and John McCain does have a distinct thing for beauty queens…
