Jacob Rowe: A candidate who can not possibly be taken seriously

McCain selected a running mate who cannot possibly be taken seriously. Is there more merit in her physical appearance than in her political record? If the highlight of your public life is someone selling provocative action figures in your likeness, how are you to be taken seriously?

This headline could easily be an opinion piece about Barack Obama. I think the reaction to such a statement a few weeks after he announced his run for the presidencey would have been met with fierce allegations that it was an unfair, snap judgment made purely based on his race.
