The 2008 GOP Ticket

ST. PAUL, Minnesota (CNN) – Republican National Committee co-chair Jo
Ann Davidson mistakenly referred to the party's presumptive vice-presidential candidate, Sarah Palin, as "Sarah Pawlenty" at the Republican National Convention Tuesday.

Palin, the governor of Alaska, was a surprise choice to join Sen. John McCain on the Republican ticket. Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty had been considered one of the front-runners for the slot.

    Badly-run convention . . . poorly-vetted VP nominee . . . record budget deficits . . . unwinnable wars . . . officials caught soliciting fellatio in rest rooms while proclaiming "family values" . . . the GOP is a bunch of clowns.
