Some call it karma. The Bible calls it reaping what you sow, more recently expressed as "what goes around comes around." It may be one of the reasons that Jesus told his followers to treat their neighbors as they themselves wished to be treated. For whatever the reason, Pastor Rick Warren revealed yesterday that he got a request for help from Sarah Palin:

"She asked me to send her some Bible verses on how do you deal with all of the unfair, unjust attacks and the mean-spirited criticism that comes in."

It reminds me of that scene from Wizard of Oz where Dorothy says to her dog, "Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore." I mean, what did the woman expect? Did she think there would be no unfair, unjust attacks and mean-spirited criticism leveled at her? Especially since she's been delivering her hateful speeches with such enthusiasm? Not only did John McCain not vet his candidate, he also did a lousy job of preparing her for the realities of the campaign trail outside Alaska.

Who but John McCain would use a woman as his lightning rod? Who but John McCain would use a woman to draw crowds that he himself could never draw? Who but John McCain would put the burden of his pitiful track record on a rookie and expect her to make it look good? Who but John McCain would dress up his hypocrisy and lies and expect an already overwhelmed mother of five to peddle it to her Christian friends? Who but John McCain deserves to be dumped on the scrap heap of history by his running mate and American voters?

No way, no how, no McCain!
