A friend of mine ask ‘why would McCain choose Palin?’ In my opinion, I think McCain was trying to find someone on the ticket to take on the ‘rock star’ effect that Obama has as well as someone who could excite the conservative base which John has not been able to do to date, both accomplished. So with that in mind, have a look at this cartoon. Sums it up perfectly in my mind, including the fact Obama earned his position (as did Lenny Kravits through good album after good album) through running a good campaign where Palin was chosen. The pig character is a main character in the comic.
Check out his comic. Its pretty good.
