Shock Therapy

It's never going to come to this, but stories even speculating on how this would go down cannot be a good sign for John McCain.

Here in St. Paul, talk of Palin has dominated the Republican convention—even more so than cable news—and by Monday night discussion among Republican operatives and reporters had turned to whether Palin would survive or become the first running mate since Thomas Eagleton in 1972 to leave a major-party ticket. On Monday, the InTrade futures market opened trading on whether Palin would withdraw before the election.

This is part of McCain's plan for getting Lieberman as his running mate. He was forced to pick a socially conservative VP to please the evangelicals. He actually thoroughly vetted Palin and knew she was the one who would implode, so he went along with putting her on the ticket, and will replace her with Joe when she is forced to step aside.
