Why didn't Palin apease you true fundy extremists?Originally posted by: brencat
McCain was never the ideal choice for true conservatives. We never forget. I will never forgive him for his open borders vote back in 2007 -- still stew when I think about that and that's just one of many such "centrist" positions he's taken that's pissed off the base.
But he could have controlled the damage with Ridge or Romney. I suppose Ridge was the best but Romney would have been useful in the current economic crisis. But we would have heard all the whiners complain about the Mormon religion, etc, etc.
Oh well. There's always Congress to take back in 2010 if the libs screw it up (and they will...one party rule always does).
