Palin Hangover

September 27, 2008

The McCain camp is apparently aware of their mistake in nominating Palin, but there’s not much they could possibly do at this point:

It seems to me that the McCain camp would very much like a do-over on the VP selection, but they know that if they dump Palin now it will definitely be over.  If he dropped her now, or if she resigned for whatever reason, the combination of media triumphalism (the narrative would be, “so much for experience and judgement!”), liberal Schadenfreude and conservative despair would be so great that McCain wouldn’t stand a chance.

I’m generally with Yglesias on debates: watching them is pretty tedious work, but they’re too important to skip. But I am looking forward to Palin-Biden more than just about any event I can remember.
