Today, in a surprise move, John McCain chose Michael Palin to be his runningmate. I had no idea he was in the running, but a moment's reflection shows how inspired a choice this is! I have to admit to being thrilled when I saw McCain Chooses Palin as Running Mate on the NY Times website!
Mr. Palin brings a great deal of foreign experience with him, just some of which can be seen in his shows Full Circle and Michael Palin: Around the World in 80 Days. Also, he has long-established government service experience, including his unparalleled work with John Cleese in the Ministry of Silly Walks!
As he is a native Briton, I didn't think he was eligible to be one heartbeat away from our Presidency, but I must be mistaken. However this happened, I can't fault the choice! This is a quality VP candidate!
(Think this is silly? Then try reading about the real person McCain chose, a less-than-two-years-governor of a state with a tiny population who has no federal government or foreign policy experience, and bear in mind that McCain is 74 and has had four bouts with cancer, making the VP nominee a very serious matter. If nothing else, this should gut the credibility of McCain's people calling Barack Obama too inexperienced!)
