ELECTION 2008: Who the f*** is this woman???

Let's run down the scandals that have already broken about Miss Palin and, thus, the things they are going to have to deal with from Day One once they hit the campaign trail:
Oh, and, she apparently was only picked as a last ditch effort on the part of McCain... from the NYT article...
Up until midweek last week, some 48 to 72 hours before Mr. McCain introduced Ms. Palin at a Friday rally in Dayton, Ohio, Mr. McCain was still holding out the hope that he could choose a good friend, Senator Joseph I. Lieberman, independent of Connecticut, a Republican close to the campaign said. Mr. McCain had also been interested in another favorite, former Gov. Tom Ridge of Pennsylvania.

But both men favor abortion rights, anathema to the Christian conservatives who make up a crucial base of the Republican Party. As word leaked out that Mr. McCain was seriously considering the men, the campaign was bombarded by outrage from influential conservatives who predicted an explosive floor fight at the convention and vowed rejection of Mr. Ridge or Mr. Lieberman by the delegates...

“They didn’t seriously consider her until four or five days from the time she was picked, before she was asked, maybe the Thursday or Friday before,” said a Republican close to the campaign. “This was really kind of rushed at the end, because John didn’t get what he wanted. He wanted to do Joe or Ridge.”

Oh, Sarah. You poor, bat-shit crazy bitch. I am thoroughly convinced Palin was picked only to keep McCain's name in the news and not leave him as an "also ran."

And this can't be a good sign for the McCain-Palin ticket.
