Dick Cheney: Sarah Palin pick “a mistake” – “Former Vice President Dick Cheney criticized Sen. John McCain’s 2008 decision to choose Sarah Palin as his running mate, saying Palin was not prepared to take over the presidency. “That one I don’t think was well handled,” Cheney said. “The test to get on that small list has to be, ‘Is this person capable of being president of the United States?’”"
Well DUH, Dick, tell us something we didn’t already know. Such courage! It’s great Cheney spoke up about Palin — about FOUR YEARS TOO LATE. Another Republican “patriot” putting politics before the good of the country. Maybe Cheney could use a spine transplant too.
McCain’s response: “‘Well, I’m always glad to get comments four years later. Look, I respect the vice president. He and I had strong disagreements on whether we should torture people or not. I didn’t think we should have. But the fact is that I’m proud of Sarah Palin, I’m proud of the job she did, I’m proud of the job she continues to do. So, everybody has their own views and I respect those views. But I’m proud of what we did.’”
And that should sum up John McCain’s entire political career as well: just enough morality to hook you before “campaign before country” floats to the surface.
Sarah being Sarah:
