McCain does seem to have a penchant for much-younger former beauty queens, doesn't he?
Update: Joe Lieberman's former campaign advisor has the same idea: "In picking an unknown, untested, half-a-term woman governor from Alaska to be his running mate, John McCain is following in a long line of reckless men who have rolled the dice for a beauty queen."
Later update: Didn't she only place second in that beauty contest? I believe in "Monopoly" placing second in a beauty contest gets you $10. A good estimate for what Palin will do for McCain.
