Is it me? Or was Sarah Palin simply chosen because she gave William Kristol a hard-on?
That's pretty much what I gleaned from an interview I heard today between Democracy Now's Amy Goodman and writer from the New Yorker, Jane Mayer.

Jane Mayer on The Insiders: How John McCain Came to Pick Sarah Palin

Republican Vice-Presidential nominee Sarah Palin has cast herself as an antidote to the elitist culture inside the Beltway.
But a new article from New Yorker reporter Jane Mayer says Palins sudden rise to prominence owes more to members of the Washington elite than her rhetoric has suggested.

No matter who wins the White House on November 4th, a group of prominent conservatives are planning to meet the next day in Virginia to discuss the way forward for the movement. And, regardless of the outcome, Governor Sarah Palin will be high on the agenda. The New York Times reports that if John McCain loses the election, Palin could emerge as a standard bearer for the conservative movement and a potential presidential candidate in 2012, albeit one who will need to address her considerable political damage.

Most Americans had never heard of Sarah Palin when McCain first announced her as his running mate back in August. Her national debut came at the Republican partys convention in Saint Paul where she sought to cast herself as an antidote to the elitist culture inside the Beltway.

Sarah Palins sudden rise to prominence, however, owes more to members of the Washington lite than her rhetoric has suggested. Thats according to an article in the New Yorker Magazine by investigative reporter Jane Mayer. Its called
"The Insiders: How John McCain Came to Pick Sarah Palin. Jane Mayer joins me now from Washington DC.

Jane Mayer, staff writer for the New Yorker. Her latest article is called "The Insiders: How John McCain Came to Pick Sarah Palin. She is author of "The Dark Side: The Inside Story of How The War on Terror Turned Into A War on American Ideals.

1. This is an interesting story. I don't think Kristol was the only one
and I do think that was a major deciding factor. Honestly. That and Jesus.

2. Bring her on...
She is a gift to the Democratic party. I hope they run her every four years until she is 115 years old.

3. She gave one to most males in the whacko wing of the party.
Just look how they drool at the sight of her.

Too bad Viagra sales can't be tracked by party affiliation.

6. Unfortunately, it appears he was thinking with his abdominal brain
To bad he didn't shove one of those abdominal brain warmers, they had for men at the turn of the century, up his ass before thinking. It might have helped.


This 1918 invention incorporates a 25-watt light bulb to heat a dildo to shove into a man's ass in order to stimulate the prostate.

The bulb didn't heat the dildo, and was pretty much a dildo with a light bulb attached to it.

7. You're wrong
They chose her because she gives Grampy a hard-on, and at his age, that's quite an accomplishment.

13. That is my understanding as well
That list leaves out James Dobson, a key figure in greenlighting the McCain-Palin ticket.

From Max Blumenthal's blog for The Nation, 9/1/08:

Last week, while the media focused almost obsessively on the DNC's spectacle in Denver, the country's most influential conservatives met quietly at a hotel in downtown Minneapolis to get to know Sarah Palin. The assembled were members of the Council for National Policy, an ultra-secretive cabal that networks wealthy right-wing donors together with top conservative operatives to plan long-term movement strategy.

CNP members have included Tony Perkins, James Dobson, Grover Norquist, Tim LaHaye and Paul Weyrich. At a secret 2000 meeting of the CNP, George W. Bush promised to nominate only pro-life judges; in 2004, then-Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist told the group, "The destiny of the nation is on the shoulders of the conservative movement." This year, thanks to Sarah Palin's selection, the movement may have finally aligned itself behind the campaign of John McCain.

(...)

I learned of the get-together only through an online commentary by one of its attendees, top Dobson/Focus on the Family flack Tom Minnery. (Watch it here) Minnery described the mood as CNP members watched Palin accept her selection as John McCain's Vice Presidential pick. "I was standing in the back of a ballroom filled with largely Republicans who were hoping against hope that something would put excitement back into this campaign," Minnery said. "And I have to tell you, that speech by Alaska Governor Sarah Palin -- people were on their seats applauding, cheering, yelling... That room in Minneapolis watching on the television screen was electrified. I have not seen anything like it in a long time."

(...)

The members of the Council for National Policy are the hidden hand behind McCain's Palin pick. With her selection, the Republican nominee is suddenly -- and unexpectedly -- assured of the support of a movement that once opposed his candidacy with all its might. Case in point: while Dobson once said he could "never" vote for McCain, he issued a statement last week hailing Palin as an "outstanding" choice. If Dobson's enthusiasm for Palin is any indication, he may soon emerge from his bunker in Colorado Springs to endorse McCain, providing the Republican nominee with the backing of the Christian right's single most influential figure.
