More of a liability than Georgie

The Number One Concern that USian voters have about John McCain is -- his age? Nope. His policies? Guess again. The top concern voters have about John McCain is... his running mate!:
"AmericaBlog flags a stunning finding in the new NBC/Wall St. Journal poll:
Now, Palin's qualifications to be president rank as voters' top concern about McCain's candidacy -- ahead of continuing President Bush's policies, enacting economic policies that only benefit the rich and keeping too high of a troop presence in Iraq.

Respondents were read a list of things and were asked to pick the two that most concern them about McCain. Thirty-four percent named Palin, versus only 23% for the runner-up, which was that it seems likely he'd continue Bush's policies.

That would seem to suggest that Palin may have become a greater liability for McCain than Bush." (emphasis mine)

After all those months of trying to put some distance between McCain and the Bush Administration, the McCain campaign picks as a VP the only person on the planet who'd actually be more of a liability than Georgie. Heckofajob!!
