Sen. McCain Goes Wrong: Phoenix is NOT the No. 2 Kidnapping Capital

He could have been president. But John McCain picked an airhead named Sarah Palin for his vice presidential—a colossal lapse of judgment that doomed his presidential ambitions.

Now John McCain is making up statistics to support his reelection campaign. The statistic in question had to do with kidnapping and McCain's assertion that that Phoenix has one of the highest kidnapping rates in the world. It's number two, McCain said.

Somebody checked the figures. McCain was wrong. He made it up. The full story here.

I think McCain's campaign was doomed anyway, so Palin was his campaign's Hail Mary.

But what an incredibly irresponsible act, to put a fool like Palin within a heartbeat of the Presidency.

He should never win another election for that.
