McCain/Palin: The Week That Was…Thus Far…But It’s Not Done Yet…Oh God…
Introducing, the new McCain/Palin official song. Put down all liquids…it really captures their essence.
So, let’s recap:
— McCain campaign manager Rick Davis not only worked for Freddie Mac, but Davis persuaded the troubled lender to pay his lobbying firm, Davis Manafort, $15,000 a month for not working because he was close to John McCain.
— After a disastrous interview with Charlie Gibson, and bizarre spoon-fed answers with Sean Hannity, Sarah Palin moved into the Katie Couric Zone of Death. Wherein Palin promptly sucked. That Katie, she’s a tiger:
Couric: …Can you give me any other examples in his 26 years of John McCain truly taking a stand on this?
Palin: I can give you examples of things that John McCain has done, that has shown his foresight, his pragmatism, and his leadership abilities. And that is what America needs today.
Couric: I’m just going to ask you one more time – not to belabor the point. Specific examples in his 26 years of pushing for more regulation.
Palin: I’ll try to find you some and I’ll bring them to you.
— To do this, McCain had to cancel Letterman. By lying. What’s worse than pissing off a comedian with a daily late night show? Other comedians now must one up Letterman’s snarking about your craptastic idiocy. Because comedians cannot help themselves. Just tack a "big joke" sign on McCain’s forehead now.
— Palin. Witchcraft exorcism. Um…
