Obviously I’m not a fan of conservative radio talker Michael Savage, but I found it interesting to hear what he had to say about Sen. John McCain’s decision to choose Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate (emphasis Savage’s):
McCain has thrown the election. It is clear now with his choice for Vice President [...]

John McCain was thinking when he chose Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate, but as I’ve spent the day thinking about this choice, it strikes me as more than a little curious.
