This from John McCain, whose slogan, "Country First," looks more than a little cynical now.
Here's the Rove confirmation of that cynicism in a nutshell:
Karl Rove, the former White House fixer who's made a living in politics his entire adult life, praised John McCain's "brilliant" pick of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate even while acknowledging that the pick was motivated solely by politics rather than her ability to step in and become commander in chief.
Wow! With this level of hubris at work in the McCain camp, it's no wonder the Palin pick has stirred controversy.
McCain's new slogan: Pray that I stay healthy, because Palin's way out of her league.
