Palin and Buchanan

A lot of people are playing up the fact that Sarah Palin was a big Buchanan backer in 2000, and possibly 1996 as well, from the standpoint that it’s evidence of how far right her sentiments are. Here’s my question; if the Obama campaign, or Democratic interest groups, make it a point to drive that home, how is that going to play in, oh I don’t know, southern Florida?

McCain obviously has to win Florida, and Buchanan is radioactive there, obviously. It really is stunning how dumb this pick looks, and moreso the more you think about it. I have to believe the McCain campaign didn’t even vet her.
