Bits and Pieces

[Video courtesy of Talking Points Memo]

Look – I know this is an election between McCain and Obama, but what does it say about McCain that he selected as his running mate someone who doesn’t have the foggiest idea about the doctrine that is, essentially, responsible for sending her son to Iraq? I know I’m partisan, but this is simply mind-boggling. (What’s scarier is that this question and answer – so devastating in all it reveals about Palin, and, more damningly, McCain – wasn’t just a softball, it was a hanging curve. Apparently they skipped this chapter in the briefings.)

On an unrelated note, some folks are apparently concerned that the Obama campaign isn’t jumping all over the “Wasilla charged rape victims for rape kits” story. Now, if Obama doesn’t jump on this, it’s campaign misconduct, but I’d argue that they’re waiting for a the right moment to focus on it, and they’d prefer to have Hillary do it, and wrap it up with McCain’s opposition to a law requiring free rape kits in order to receive funds under the Violence Against Women act. Better to make it a theme than a gotcha.
