State of the art weirdness

I've been too busy with other matters to really fully appreciate McCain's choice as a running mate. About the nearest I can make of Sarah Palin is that she seems like some twisted and bizarre combination of Desperate Housewives character Bree Van de Kamp and actress Sally Field. Maybe Jonathan Schwarz is right when he says:
Whether McCain wins or not, Sarah Palin is a harbinger of the future. The fact there was no one able to prevent McCain from choosing such an obviously inadequate imperial manager, and choosing her in such a bizarre, panicked way, indicates that—as during the decline of Rome, or the last years of Saddam's regime—everyone sane has already been eliminated from the power structure. And thus we're left with nothing but the whim of whoever's clambered to the top of the Crazy Pole.
Praise the Lord and pass the Thorazine.
