John McCain has committed – by his own professed standards of duty and honor – a singularly unpatriotic act.
“I would rather lose a political campaign than lose a war,” he has said throughout this campaign.

That would seem the deeper meaning of his choice of Palin.
No presidential nominee of either party in the last century has seemed so willing to endanger the country’s security as McCain in his reckless choice of a running mate.
