- We bet McCain’s Palin comments will be part of every QC Times eulogy
- Sort of like the press’ practical sobriquet for John Kerry “who served in Vietnam” we will see . . . John McCain “who regretted his selection of running mate Sarah Palin”
Via The Daily Mail:
“Former Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin says hearing that Sen. John McCain now regrets choosing her as his 2008 running mate is ‘like a perpetual gut-punch’ every time she hears about it.
And the latest verdict from the ailing 81-year-old Arizona Republican, she said, is perplexing because McCain has told her very different things over and over in person.
‘That’s not what Sen. McCain has told me all these years, as he’s apologized to me repeatedly for the people who ran his campaign – some who now staff MSNBC, the newsroom there, which tells you a lot,’ Palin said.
Oh surely the sainted John McCain wouldn’t tell the person who was the most effective participant in his incompetent run for the presidency that he didn’t really want her, preferring of course, in his patented “reaching across the aisle” style, to have really lusted for a liberal running mate.
McCain was an awful candidate and he ran a campaign more in opposition to the down ticket of his own party than against Barack Obama, whose middle name McCain would not allow to be spoken.
Let’s recall who Sarah Palin ran against; remember Joe Biden? Palin, in the view of most observers, partisan and non-partisan, acknowledged that she won their only debate, quite handily.
Really…can anyone say, with a straight face that Joe Biden was a better vice president than Palin would have been?
If we only had had a strong presidential candidate. Or at least a smart one. DLH
