Watch him lean forward as he goes on the attack while being questioned by the Des Moines Register Editorial Board yesterday, September 30, 2008.
"You and I just have a fundamental disagreement, and I am so happy the American people seem to be siding with me," he replied when a member of the board suggested that Palin lacks experience.
Further questioned, McCain's tone grew more annoyed. He suggested that Palin does not need the blessing of Republican intelligentsia to appeal to everyday voters. "If there's a Georgetown cocktail party person who, quote, calls himself a conservative who doesn't like her, good luck. I don't dismiss him," he said. "I think the American people have overwhelmingly shown their approval."
Palin's dropping approval rating suggests otherwise.
