Do it.

By Ta-Nehisi Coates

The only thing that would please me more than McCain nominating Joe Lieberman for VP, would be McCain nominating Mitt Romney. I can't really see him doing either. Lieberman, it seems, creates serious problems with right-wing evangelicals who already don't like McCain. Or maybe McCain would be willing to write them off. Mittens, it seems, would really hurt that whole "maverick" persona. Speaking of which, if you ever want to read an early but thorough debunking of the McCain mythology. Check out Amanda Ripley's piece from way back.
