McCain, who really wanted his best friend Joe Lieberman as his running mate, cleverly chose the worst possible candidate as his running mate. That way when the Eagleton-factor clicks in, and it already has my friends, he can switch to someone else. The Republican base would have had a fit last week if he’d chosen Lieberman. After all this guy is “just” a moderate Democrat in Independent’s clothing. But this week…. this week Lieberman looks like the savior of the Republican Party. With all the *-gates that Palin has generated in just two days, Lieberman can now swoop in and be nominated to replace the “problem” Palin. The Republican base won’t be hopping-mad or even irritated by the switch to the guy McCain wanted in the first place. Why? Because compared to the soap opera that is the Palin-problem, a Democrat-in-Independent’s clothing is a refreshingly wacky 1960s Disney comedy starring Fred McMurry as the confused Democrat and Jimmy Stewart as the confused Republican.
