Palin Fails First Judgement Call...

...By accepting McCain's offer. 

McCain has already displayed a shocking disrespect for the office of the President and the American people with his mind-boggling choice. Now Palin has compounded the decision by accepting. 

How many people of good judgment, knowing their qualifications to sit a heart-beat form the Presidency are as thin as Palin's, and respected the responsibility and seriousness of the job, would accept such an offer? 

It's like the plot from a bad teen movie where the main character wakes up one day to see they have been selected as the VP. 

Palin has earned her position as Governor of Alaska–though her track record there seriously undercuts the Republicans' defensive argument that she has executive experience–but the stakes are substantially higher when your job is to be the backup for the leader of the free world.
