OK, so it was nuts

On 29 August, I wrote, in re McCain's choice of Sarah Palin for VP:
...this move is either going to look nuts or brilliant in under a month.
It started looking dodgy pretty quickly: the Palin pick had successfully energized a chunk of the base, but moderates and independents who might lean Republican (people you have to win over, if you're John McCain) were not reacting well.

Not quite two months in, the verdict is clear: it was nuts.

Sarah Palin is and remains the single best reason not to vote for John McCain.
