The McCain campaign has devolved into self-parody. We’re all living this, so I can’t imagine many of us have the perspective to see how utterly bizarre this is. But I’m imagining trying to explain this to teenagers a decade from now, and it’s just so stupid that I can’t see doing it while keeping a straight face. I thought that Huckabee carting around Chuck Norris on the campaign trail was about the most bizarre campaign trail schtick I’d ever heard of, but McCain has gone and topped it. Between Palin, Mr. The Plumber, and the legions of angry Palin suporters, this is going to be a good-old-fashioned three-ring circus.
Is it possible that he doesn’t know that this is an awful, awful idea?
