McCain’s next move: let’s have a wedding!

by on September 28, 2008  •  In Elections

A collective hoot of derision is spreading across the web tonight as bloggers react to an article by Sarah Baxter in Sunday's Times of London reporting that 

Inside John McCain’s campaign the expectation is growing that there will be a popularity boosting pre-election wedding in Alaska between Bristol Palin, 17, and Levi Johnston, 18, her schoolmate and father of her baby. “It would be fantastic,” said a McCain insider. “You would have every TV camera there. The entire country would be watching. It would shut down the race for a week.”

Of course, this whole strategy (whoops – I think it's really a tactic) is strange. It's normally the guy who's ahead, not the guy behind, who wants to shut down the game. Anyway, whatever the plan was, if there was such a plan, it's toast now.  These two unlucky teens may get married next month, but don't hold your breath for a royal Alaskan wedding.
