    Commentary: Is McCain out of his mind?


    By Paul Begala
    CNN Contributor
    (CNN) -- John McCain needs what Kinky Friedman calls "a checkup from the neck up."
    In choosing Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to be his running mate he is not thinking "outside the box," as some have said. More like out of his mind.
    Palin a first-term governor of a state with more reindeer than people, will have to put on a few pounds just to be a lightweight. Her personal story is impressive: former fisherman, mother of five. But that hardly qualifies her to be a heartbeat away from the presidency.
    For a man who is 72 years old and has had four bouts with cancer to have chosen someone so completely unqualified to become president is shockingly irresponsible. Suddenly, McCain's age and health become central issues in the campaign, as does his judgment.
    In choosing this featherweight, McCain passed over Tom Ridge, a decorated combat hero, a Cabinet secretary and the former two-term governor of the large, complex state of Pennsylvania. iReport.com: 'McCain pick might be a gimmick'
    He passed over Mitt Romney, who ran a big state, Massachusetts; a big company, Bain Capital; and a big event, the Olympics.
    He passed over Kay Bailey Hutchison, the Texas senator who is knowledgeable about the military, good on television, and -- obviously -- a woman.
    He passed over Joe Lieberman, his best friend in the Senate and fellow Iraq Kool-Aid drinker.
    He passed over former congressman, trade negotiator and budget director Rob Portman.
    And he also passed over Mike Huckabee, the governor of Arkansas.
    For months, the McCainiacs have said they will run on his judgment and experience. In his first presidential decision, John McCain has shown he is willing to endanger his country, potentially leaving it in the hands of someone who simply has no business being a heartbeat away from the most powerful, complicated, difficult job in human history.

    I don't see how that scumbag MItt Romney would have been a "better" choice.

    This is going to be the longest 2 months ever.....

    I would have preferred, if he's going hard-core conservative, Elizabeth Dole or even, dare I say it.........my former gov, Christie Whitman.

    But this woman is so unqualified, it's sick. I'm all for a woman, but someone qualified, not just because she's a woman.


    Oh and the fisherman and mom to 5 kids resume? That's impressive? She couldn't even make a career in TV sportscasting in Alaska!!! A state that is unranked in the markets!

    PS I am SO glad I live in Europe right now.

    Every where I keep seeing comments about how "hot" Palin is. That's really digging into the substance! Aside from the sexist comments judging her "hotness," she'll only make McCain look more old and haggard when they're together.

    Begala makes several good points. None of which I see you critiquing if what he wrote constitutes such a problem.
