Cheney: "Picking Palin For V. P. Was a Mistake"

I almost passed on this information, My thought was "we already know this, Mr. Cheney". But then I thought, write it down for the record and see what it says about Republicans selling a pig in a poke.

Former vice president Dick Cheney said in an interview with ABC News that Sen. John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) decision to pick Sarah Palin as his running mate in 2008 was “a mistake.”

Cheney becomes one of the few high-profile Republicans to say publicly what some inside the party say privately — that Palin was a bad choice. Palin’s time as the GOP’s vice presidential nominee was marked by an awkward interview with CBS’s Katie Couric, and since then, she has seen her unfavorable rating rise significantly. Today, she is one of the most unpopular politicians in the country.

As my daughter Krystal would say "Thanks Dick, we got that. She seems to resent being told something that's quite obvious.

The former vice president, in his first interview since a successful heart transplant, suggested that Palin’s selection wasn’t well-handled.

“The test to get on that small list has to be, ‘Is this person capable of being president of the United States?’” he said.

The Republicans are once again trying to sell us a "pig in a poke", but this time it's trying to sell us Mitt Romney for President of the United States.
