Banana Republicans II

As another weird disclosure about Palin emerges--she apparently belonged to some sort of fringe, Alaskan Independence group in the nineties--it occurs to me that not only has McCain basically thrown away the entire basis of his candidacy, his experience visa via Obama, but in throwing the hail mary with Palin, he's also discarded the other pillar of his candidacy, his "pass" from fawning American media types, unwilling to call Senator "Maverick" on his gaffes, policy inconsistencies, flip flops, or other problems, because the media thought it "knew" McCain. Not so with Palin.
