Being Liberal and a Progressive in a RED STATE is not an easy thing these days.

Op-ed by Ron Reagan son of Ronald Reagan

This is probably one of the best op-eds I've read on the Sarah Palin fiasco, it embodies everything I think about the pick. If you have time read the whole piece. Here is a teaser:

Whatever John McCain may have been at various times during his long political career, he is now a man clearly consumed by his drive to reach the Oval Office. His choice of Palin as running mate may be the most reckless, irresponsible decision ever made by a presidential candidate. Having spent the preceding weeks accusing Barack Obama of valuing personal political success over the country’s welfare, McCain’s first presidential decision turned out to be a purely tactical gambit that could conceivably place our nation in the hands of an ill-prepared, radical-right, scientific illiterate whose primary qualification to be the ticket’s vice president is that she doesn’t have a penis. One can only wonder whether McCain guessed, as he made his choice, that Palin would steal his thunder on her way to becoming the Princess Diana of the Guns ‘n Ammo crowd, or whether he cared either way.
