Apparently McCain Got into Bush's Liquor Cabinet

Let me make sure I've got this straight: John McCain's principle criticism of Obama has been that he is too inexperienced to be President.

So what does McCain do? He picks as his vice presidential running mate the governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin. And what, you may ask, are Palin's credentials? She's four years younger than Obama, has held office for less than two years (half as long as Obama's been a Senator), and has absolutely no experience in Washington.

It is often said that the vice president is a heartbeat away from the presidency. And with McCain turning 72, the man has an increasing finite number of heartbeats left. Probably more so than at any time in recent history, his Vice President needs to be someone who is qualified to become President.

If, as McCain has repeatedly said, Obama is NOT qualified to be President, what the hell makes him think Palin is?
