Arizona POW Senator John McCain has always prided himself on being the lonely westerner gun slinger who stood up alone to the forces of evil. Besides a stuffed hamster, Mccain keeps a 16mm print of Gary Cooper's High Noon on an old movie projector in all of his seven, or is it eight mansions because he doesn't know that the DVD player has been invented.
In an effort to recapture the maverick identity after selling out to every Republican and Conservative interest group including the HNTB (Hitler's not that bad), McCain is telling himself and the world that he chose Sarah Palin because she is his maverika soul mate who has had the courage to stand up to Republican corruption and big Alaskan oil.
Others suspect that the Palin choice represents a big fat tookas lipsmack on both cheeks of the Christian Conservative puppeteer that has called the shots in the Republican party since Reagan let them into the White House. Akll of Mccains nuanced positions on abortion, guns and energy will now be run by little sister and her NeoCon Fundie Holding Company!
