Who wouldn’t have known that, sooner or later, Sarah Palin was going to open her mouth and stick John McCain in it?
"If I called all the shots, and if I could wave a magic wand," Palin told her traveling press corps as she stood on the tarmac here, "I would be sitting at a kitchen table with more and more Americans, talking to them about our plan to get the economy back on track and winning the war and not having to rely on the old conventional ways of campaigning that includes those robocalls and includes spending so much money on the television ads that, I think, is kind of draining out there in terms of Americans' attention span." (Palin Criticizes Robocalls by Juliet Eilperin)
If Sarah Palin called all the shots, she would not “rely on the old conventional ways of campaigning” such as those stupid McCain robocalls”. And, she wouldn’t have John McCain waste precious campaign money plastering his mug all over TV. It drains the “Americans’ attention span”.
Attention span? Well Gee, Sarah! I didn’t know that the American people had an attention span after listening to you. All you are going to do is make Big Bad John mad.
Fact is: You are not calling the shots, and never will.
Didn’t you know Vice Presidents don’t usurp power? Ddin’t you know a VP candidate doesn't upstage the presidential candidate? Never contradict your running mate.
There is a time to speak and a time to be silent. Your 15-minute conversation with America ended, Sarah Palin, with Katy Couric.
