A Heartbeat Away

Just watched the official announcement by Senator John McCain and I’m not so sure about Governor Sarah Palin. Look, I’m not going to start hating on another woman, she’s clearly bright, ambitious and has definitely served Alaska well — but seriously, is this the best he could do? Are there no other prominent Republican women worthy on being on the ticket?
Seriously folks! I have watched a lot of political speeches in my lifetime and this acceptance speech leaves a lot to be desired. It leaves me thinking that she isn’t ready for prime time, never mind being a heartbeat away from the Presidency.
Furthermore, considering all that is happening around the world, thinking it’s quite ironic that Senator McCain picked someone with no national or international experience or even stated opinions on worldly affairs. Heck, does she even have a passport? Can she pick out the G8 leaders from a line-up? Does she have the deep knowledge needed to speak credibly with world leaders on topics say beyond energy? I suppose only time will tell.
