McCain/Palin Vs. The Newspapers

Our thanks to Wonkette for this video. This is John McCain getting agro on a Des Moines Register reporter. It’s really weird to get angered by legitimate questions. It’s even weirder to compare Sarah Palin to Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton. Might as well say that she has more executive experience than George Washington had when he took office. Abraham Lincoln never went to the Mideast – never got his passport. Teddy Roosevelt is exactly like Sarah Palin in every way.

Also, Sarah gave her first newspaper interview. It was to the Mat-Su Valley Frontiersman in Wasilla, Alaska. By – wait for it – email. Yes, her hometown newspaper of 12 subscribers got an exclusive interview, the only newspaper interview to date with a national candidate. The interview didn’t answer any questions. But it sure brought up some. Like – how come there are Gitmo prisoners that have had more media interviews than someone running for vice president? Why?

We’re just gonna have to get back to ya!
