McCain has lost control of the message and his own party's platform. The Palin pick really underscores how the well-connected evangelicals have taken over, and despite the depserate ranting of O'Reilly, it's not going well. For one thing, it turns out Palin went back and forth between five colleges - five - and McCain's people never called them. Hey small business-owners out there - I don't know about you, but when I'm hiring someone, I check their references and degrees, but I guess that's too much work for today's GOP (or there was a reason they didn't want to or care to).
And, more fun in the religious zealot department: Palin goes to a church where she prays to convert gays into straight people. This is no regular gal - she's a diva who thinks that questions are beneath her, since she won't talk to the press. Is this the woman you want potentially taking over the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac bailouts?
