RCP Piece: Why I Regretted Voting for Obama*

Thinly veiled hit piece on Palin. And Bush to a degree.

Before John McCain unwittingly picked a tabloid-magazine cover girl for his running mate, I was leaning toward going Republican this time around. I did the second time Bush was on the ballot and I very nearly did the first time, too. But as soon as Palin climbed out of her igloo and onto the national scene, well, there was no turning back for me.

This thing is such a mess I don't even know where to start. For a person who claims to be a "fiscal conservative" she seems just a bit more driven by cult of personality than political ideology. Tear it up for yourselves.

Parting shot, anybody buying her last line about hoping the Republicans can find a "president with experience and savvy, a Commander in Chief who puts our country and its citizens first."?

Not me.

*updated headline to point out this isn't my regret, it's somebody else's
