Republicans have gone to acting like Democrats, killing their own young. I love it.
Latest example: Kathleen Parker strays off the reservation again on Sarah Palin, who's one of the heaviest millstones around John McCain's neck. Why did McCain pick her? Old story, Parker suggests. Old coot has the hots for the young babe.
It is entirely possible that no one could have beaten the political force known as Barack Obama -- under any circumstances. And though it isn't over yet, it seems clear that McCain made a tragic, if familiar, error under that sycamore tree. Will he join the pantheon of men who, intoxicated by a woman's power, made the wrong call?
