"It's a girl!" Slate enthuses in announcing John McCain's new veep-mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. It sure is a girl, and by naming Palin, McCain makes one thing clear: The only way he thinks he can win in November is by picking off Hillary's female supporters. This isn't exactly news.
But how the heck can he do that by naming a running mate with almost no experience who is anti-choice? Hillary Clinton's selling points, among others, were that (a) she had the experience and (b) she was pro-woman. Does McCain think women voters are too stupid to notice Palin's record?
