The Eagleton Has Landed.

Mark Nickolas makes a great catch:

In this afternoon’s New York Times story on the Sarah Palin (R) insanity today was this sentence:

Gov. Mark Sanford of South Carolina said that he had heard no discussion about removing Ms. Palin from the ticket.

Sometimes, it’s the questions being asked that are more important than the answers.

It took only three days for the “Will McCain change running mates?” question to jump from the liberal blogosphere and become a topic of conversation in the mainstream media.  I had assumed that it would never even be acknowledged as a possibility unless Palin were indicted or caught in bed with her running mate.

BooMan has started a Thomas Eagleton Watch, listing some of the various scandals and embarrassments floating around Palin and the McCain campaign, any combination of which could prove bad enough to boot her off the ticket.  And that’s without even mentioning her former membership in and continued fondness for the fringe-y secessionist Alaskan Independence Party.  Hey, if their agenda had panned out, she might have plenty of executive experience by now – she’d be President! Just… not of the US.

My personal prediction: No matter how bad it gets, McCain will cling to her like grim death… unless the religious right gives him the go-ahead to swap her out for Pawlenty.
