The McCain campaign’s decision to revisit Bill Ayers and Rev. Wright (since, you know, that worked out so well before) is wholly unsurprising given his personnel and his place in the polls, but I can’t help but think it only emphasizes his rash choice of an obscure and unvetted VP candidate. Crazy pastor? Check. America-haters? Check.

I was hoping the selection of Sarah Palin would lead to a valuable, earnest national discussion on the subject “White People: Crazy?” but the ironies seem to be lost.
