Given McCain’s selection of the scandal-beset Sarah Palin for Vice President, the last thing his campaign wanted was the image of a heartless, indifferent group of blindingly white people dancing the night away while the South struggled with yet another natural disaster. So the McCain campaign handed down a stern edict: "No celebrating!"
This is what they got instead. Photo ops of John McCain putting dishwasher detergent in a care package (um, a dishwasher? With what electricity, y’all?). Cindy McCain and Laura Bush tut-tutting with the Louisiana delegation. Pink boas, pink wigs, a strutting Tom DeLay lobbyist, and a band called "Hookers and Blow."
I ask you this: How is he supposed to command respect from foreign leaders if he can’t even control his own Convention?
