In a stunning move that blatantly panders to comedians and writers, McCain has chosen "Monty Python" star Michael Palin as his running mate. This is just a desperate move on McCain's part -- he might as well have chosen some random Alaskan.
Palin, whose credentials include his role as Pontius Pilate in "Life of Brian," has more recently appeared in a series of travelogues. This will be a very difficult choice for McCain to justify, as Palin was born in England and can't be president.
Perhaps McCain is trying to pick up some of the voters who were disappointed that Al Franken didn't run.

"As for that VP talk all the time, I tell you I still can't answer that question until somebody answers for me: What is it, exactly, that the VP does every day?" -- Gov. Sarah Palin
