Condescending and Insulting? Gimmicky?

From Scott Swenson's blog at RHRealityCheck.org:

Former Republican Congressman and host of MSNBC's Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough said, "If John McCain's campaign thinks he can get Hillary Clinton voters by choosing Palin it is condescending and insulting to women and it is a terrible political faux pas."

Former McCain adviser Mike Murphy said, "They know they are in a real fight here so there was a calculation that they need a real shock value here."

NBC Political Director Chuck Todd said McCain runs the risk of this looking like a gimmick. "John McCain only met her twice, he doesn't know her. This goes against everything we know about John McCain, he like to surround himself with people that he is comfortable with and that are loyal to him and all of the sudden this is a political calculation and it is gimmicky," Chuck Todd said.
