John McCain reaches Dead Zone Moment?

Posted By on Fri, Aug 29, 2008 at 4:52 PM

There is a classic scene is the movie, The Dead Zone, in which the slimy presidential candidate, played by Martin Sheen, in order to protect himself from Johnny Smith’s assassination  attempt, snatches up the first object at hand to shield himself - a woman’s baby.

In selecting Sarah Palin as his VP choice, has McCain reached his Dead Zone Moment? He’s been using the POW card for months to protect himself from tough questions on the campaign trail.  In choosing Palin - besides a blatant attempt to secure the votes of women - is he hoping that Joe Biden will pull his punches in a debate with her?

There is already some speculation that was one of the reasons she was chosen.

If so, the “Straight-Talk Express” has at last reached the end of the line, a complete and total intellectual  train wreck.
