McCain-Palin Trainwreck Excuse du Jour

11th in a series on the best
excuses for the GOP disaster

Ken Adelman's bona fides as a conservative Republican hawk are impeccable, and he doesn't mince words about what he believes is a key element of the trainwreck:
"The most important decision John McCain made in his long campaign was deciding on a running mate.

"That decision showed appalling lack of judgment. Not only is Sarah Palin not close to being acceptable in high office — I would not have hired her for even a mid-level post in the arms-control agency. But that selection contradicted McCain's main two, and best two, themes for his campaign — Country First, and experience counts. Neither can he credibly claim, post-Palin pick."

Adelman, by the by, has endorsed Barack Obama.
