I just couldn’t let this one go without comment. In this clip, John McCain basically blames his running mate’s statements about Pakistan on journalists! And the question wasn’t even asked by a journalist. Instead, it was a voter, shouting the question to her as she walked. It was noisy, she just spouted off the first thing that came into her head, etc. etc. etc. This is CRAZY! At the end of the clip, McCain reveals exactly why he named her: she got everybody excited. This isn’t about who would be the best candidate; it’s about giving Republicans, especially the evangelical base, a reason to go vote for the whole ticket. Who cares that she doesn’t have a clue?
