Rachel Maddow whacks the McCain campaign for putting clueless Sarah Palin and recent Fox News hire one step away from being President of the United States when they already knew that she wasn't qualified. While I have no desire to push Heilemann and Halperin's gossip rag of a book, the news that Steve Schmidt and other campaign staffers of McCain's weren't happy with Palin is nothing new and probably credible. And anyone with half a brain didn't need inside the beltway campaign gossip to see that their assertions were right and that Sister Sarah had no business being one bad heartbeat away from the Presidency and McCain should have known better than to select her.

As Rachel notes, no one gets to vote for the Vice Presidential candidate and it shows how much that person cares about the country with their selection, and McCain put his campaign before country as much as he might not like being called out for it now. He got pretty nasty with Matt Lauer for daring to ask him about the book. I'd hate to see how would act if anyone actually really got confrontational with him about it.
