The day McCain announced Palin as a running mate he lost my vote. I had vetted McCain, read his book and biography, and generally liked to see a veteran and former prisoner of war clean up our messed up situation in the Middle East. I had respect for him. Picking Palin showed incredible lack of judgment. End of story. I voted for Obama. I have my issues with that too, but I have never regretted making sure Palin did not become vice president. McCain’s downfall was Palin. I am sure of it.
Now Romney picked Paul Ryan, one of the most radical right-wing members of congress, an ideological zealot and a tea-party poster-boy.
My choice this November has just been made easy. Do you think I want Ryan to be vice president, or the solid, smart, working-class and humble Biden?
Take a wild guess.
