The challenge for the Obama-Biden campaign is to show voters how bizarrely unqualified and ideologically conservative Palin is without being seen a bullies beating up on the nice young woman from Alaska.
According to campaign insiders, the decision to select a hoofed mammal to replace Gov. Palin evolved after Sen. McCain watched his running mate's performance in a series of interviews with CBS's Katie Couric.
The best laugh in this selection is that McCain thinks he can snag the Hillary refuseniks with a female and appease the Religious Right with Palin's anti-abortion rights stance. He's going to lose on both counts.
