John McCain is a dirty old man!
August 30, 2008 3 Comments
I have a theory that the choice of Governor Sarah Palin as the GOP nominee for vice president is a sign that John McCain has quite a fantasy developing about how his presidency would unfold.
He is an elder statesman, living the relaxed life of a Bush-style president, and who wouldn’t want a vice president who is easy on the eyes… Really, who would want to look at Joe Lieberman every day? br-r-r-r-r.
Then the New York Times reports this:
“She’s going to learn national security at the foot of the master for the next four years, and most doctors think that he’ll be around at least that long,” said Charlie Black, one of Mr. McCain’s top advisers, making light of concerns about Mr. McCain’s health, which Mr. McCain’s doctors reported as excellent in May.
9 out of 10 doctors agree that John McCain is a dirty old man!
Then Ken Layne reminds me that Palin is a former beauty queen, and John McCain does have a distinct thing for beauty queens…
and from the New York Times:
“She’s not from these parts, and she’s not from Washington, but when you get to know her, you’re going to be as impressed as I am,” Mr. McCain told a midday rally of 15,000 people in a basketball arena here shortly before Ms. Palin, with her husband and four of her children, strode out onto the stage.
… The McCain campaign said that Mr. McCain first met Ms. Palin in February this year at the National Governors Association meeting in Washington and came away “extraordinarily impressed.” But Mr. McCain apparently has spent little time with her.
… As recently as last month, Ms. Palin appeared to dismiss the importance of the vice presidency in an interview with Larry Kudlow of CNBC, who asked her about her prospects for the job.
“I still can’t answer that question until somebody answers for me, what is it exactly that the V.P. does every day?” Ms. Palin told Mr. Kudlow.
