There's been a lot of buzz and controversy surrounding John McCain's selection of Sarah Palin as his running mate. FWIW, she's been my preferred pick for the past couple months, but I never really thought she'd actually get the nod.
The Democrats claim that this increases their chances of winning the White House, due to Palin being a rookie Governor with zero foreign policy experience (as opposed to, uh, a rookie Senator with zero foreign policy experience). However, I think their true feelings are perfectly summed up by this CTV interview.
Notice how the Republican is beaming ecstatically, while the Democrat looks like he's about to cry.
On a related note, this is an awesome picture:
