When vetting your VP over the phone goes wrong

For future reference, the next time McCain runs a presidential campaign and needs to distance himself from Bush and Cheney, he might not want to pick a folksy, incurious, oil maven, who’s being investigated by an ethics committee for abusing her power.

In honor of yesterday’s long-anticipated Troopergate report, and Sarah Palin officially taking her place as the worst vice presidential pick in American history, I made this PALINdrome:

Id like to respond about the corruption if you will in that Alaska with the straight talk I can assure you that im a rules and regulations maverick

    “We could go on and on with evidence that the Chicago Annenberg Challenger was a rather vanilla charitable group. For example, under the deal with Annenberg every dollar from him had to be matched by two from elsewhere. The co-funders were a host of respected, mainstream institutions, such as the National Science Foundation, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation and the Chicago Public Schools.

    In short, this was a mainstream foundation funded by a mainstream, Republican business leader and led by an overwhelmingly mainstream, civic-minded group of individuals. Ayers’ involvement in its inception and on an advisory committee do not make it radical – nor does the funding of programs involving the United Nations and African-American studies.

    This attack is false, but it’s more than that – it’s malicious. It unfairly tars not just Obama, but all the other prominent, well-respected Chicagoans who also volunteered their time to the foundation. They came from all walks of life and all political backgrounds, and there’s ample evidence their mission was nothing more than improving ailing public schools in Chicago. Yet in the heat of a political campaign they have been accused of financing radicalism. That’s Pants on Fire wrong.”
