The Christian kingmakers forced McCain to pass up more experienced candidates. They won and, heady with their victory, the faithful rushed back into the Republican fold, and they'll get nothing again as a result.
Her performance was so strong and so well focused that it would be foolish not to immediately send her out on the campaign trail and/or to as many television interviews as she can squeeze into her schedule.
This time McCain's tin ear for -- and lack of commitment to -- the true worth of women invades the public sphere. He refused to choose a qualified Republican woman and, in doing so, his contempt for women is showing like an oversized slip beneath a mini-skirt.
