McCain's Angry Defense of Palin in Des Moines

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.

Mac is right on the money.


In touch with the American People? Hahahahahaha


Well, I'm not gonna argue with you on this one. I don't know of anyone who has more personal experience with anger than you do, Lee. So, I guess if anyone would recognize it, it would most likely be you.

You're right, Dave. John McCain and I are equally unqualified for the job of President because of our anger. I'm glad you recognize that.


I'm just going to have to "fundamentally disagree" with John McCain for a moment, and dispute the fact that "Americans have overwhelmingly sided with Palin."

I live in the real world, not the one John McCain's internal data specialists seem to feed him.

I'm not going to sit here and regurgitate what I said on Wizbang Classic's latest post, you can go read it yourself.
