“Most peculiar Vice-Presidential choice ever”

This is a suitable p.s. to my previous post. Ben Stein (an author and a Republican supporter) unloads on McCain’s choice of Palin:

(h/t Andrew Sullivan)

But let us be fair about this. She’s a very different person from what John McCain was advertising himself as. And in terms of the economy, as far as I know she has absolutely zero background in it.

She’s got to have around her very, very smart people, telling her the basics of the economy, telling her the basics of foreign policy, night and day. She’s going to have to be like that business in the Superman movie, where the little superbaby was travelling through space, and they’re giving him a tape of all the knowledge in the world for him to absorb.

    Ok, the comparison to superman made me laugh out loud.

    Nothing else about this election does thus far, though…
